Currently, the electric passenger vehicle space is one of the least populated segments, with regards to EVs. According to the Society Of Manufacturers Of Electric Vehicles (SMEV) 2,36,802, electric vehicles were sold in FY2020-21. Out of this, electric four-wheelers, which although witnessed a healthy growth of 52.93 per cent over the previous fiscal year, stood at just 4,588 units. The majority of EV sales came from two-wheelers, which stood at 1,43,837 units, followed by electric three-wheelers at 88,378 units.
The Government of India, and several OEMs as well, believe that shared mobility and the transport segment should be the area of focus in order to build a strong EV ecosystem in India. Having said that several electric passenger cars are expected to be launched in India in 2021 which include - Tata Altoz EV, Mahindra eKUV100, Tesla Model 3, Volvo XC40 Recharge, Audi eTron, Mercedes-Benz EQS, and the Porsche Taycan.
