Top Five Value for Money Electric Cars in India

With the increasing climate change, a greener pact is looming in the air starting with the introduction of electric cars in India thus marching towards baby steps in order to become a global hub of the manufacturing of electric vehicles.

It was a matter of the past when the electric cars were either too expensive or the presence or insufficiency of charging infrastructure existed. Gasping the fact that electric is future, much recently, the Indian automobile sector started launching brand new entries of much-awaited electric cars from major car manufacturers like Tata Motors, Hyundai, MG Motors, Mahindra and many more. Let’s have a look at the 5 best electric cars in India you should not miss out on:

1. Tata Nexon EV

The Nexon EV is well and truly the product that spearheads its EV aspirations in India. The Nexon EV debuts a new look for Tata's popular compact SUV with a thoroughly redesigned front end and minor updates to the rear end as well. There are new headlamps with eye-catching LED detailing for the DRLs that also double up as the turn indicators. Electric blue highlights can be found in the cabin in various places including the aircon vents and instrument panel. A 30.2kWh battery pack pairs with a single permanent magnet synchronous motor powers the front wheels which eventually pushes the maximum power output to 127 hp with 245 Nm of peak torque from its electric motor.


Moreover, Tata is claiming an overall range of 312km for the Nexon EV as certified by the ARAI. It can be charged from 0 to 80% in 60 mins using DC fast charging while 20 to 100% charge with a domestic 15amp socket will take around 8 hours. Practically speaking then, an overnight charge would be sufficient to rail the road for daily commutes for around a week via the wall-box charger that Tata will install free of charge. Undoubtedly, the reason behind grabbing the spot amongst the best electric cars is surely its great power package.


Price Range: Rs 13.99 lakh to Rs 15.99 lakh
