Mahindra and Tata motors too have introduced EVs in India. The Mahindra Verito has an electric variant called the eVerito, which is India's first electric sedan, while Tata has launched the Tigor EV, which is available in 3 variants.

Tata has revealed that it will soon debut the first EV with its Ziptron technology, which will ensure zero emission. The car is expected to be priced between 15 lakh and 17 lakh.

Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) MD and CEO Kenichi Ayukawa had said that the company is trying to develop some products which would be launched next year.

According to the United States Department of Energy, electric motors react quickly and have extremely good torque. They also help reduce emissions that contribute to climate change and reduce ecological damage as well.

These benefits hold true for any country around the world, including India, which has been fighting pollution for years.
