In the last few years, the trend of electric cars has increased. Electric vehicles have also got a boost due to subsidies from the central and state governments. Along with this, people troubled by the rising price of petrol and diesel are also buying electric vehicles. The Electric Vehicle Society (SMEV) claims that EV sales in India will cross the one million units mark this year.
Many electric cars have been launched in the country so far and 2022 is also expected to be a big year for electric cars. We are doing this because carmakers are going to launch many cars this year. Today we are talking about the top 5 cars out of them.
