This article shows the Super and best electric cars in India. Electric car use in India has been increasing in recent years. Several manufacturers have now joined the electric car category, with choices ranging from electric hatchbacks and sedans to the more plentiful SUVs/crossovers at various price ranges. Tata Motors has emerged as the most powerful player in the EV field, capturing the lion’s share of the market with mass-market electric models such as the Nexon EV and Tigor EV, but as costs rise, so does the number of EVs available.
We’ll look at which EVs are currently available in India and which will provide you the best mileage on a single charge in the list below.
Electric vehicles are environmentally friendly. They produce fewer greenhouse emissions and air pollution than gasoline or diesel vehicles. This includes their manufacture as well as the electricity generated to keep them functioning.

Kia’s premier electric vehicle was merely presented in India a few days ago, and all 100 vehicles slated for the nation in 2022 have already been claimed. The sleek-looking crossover rides on Hyundai’s purpose-built e-GMP platform, with the bigger 77.4 kWh under-floor battery pack available only in India. Buyers may pick between two drivetrains: a single motor with 226 horsepower and 350 Nm that offers a reasonable range or a more powerful and energy-consuming AWD model with 320 bhp and 650 Nm.

Audi e-tron GT
The e-Tron GT is Audi’s third e-Tron model to come in India. With its low sports coupe-inspired aesthetics and powerful powertrains, the e-Tron GT is probably the sportiest looking EV from Audi’s trio. The e-Tron GT, which starts at Rs 1.65 crore (ex-showroom), has sportscar aesthetics and performance, as well as enough back seat capacity for two adults. The low-slung GT is available in two versions, both of which promise lots of power and even a decent driving range.
The ‘standard’ GT is offered with a 523 horsepower, 630 Nm all-wheel-drive powertrain with a claimed range of up to 500 km and a 0-100 kmph speed of under 4.1 seconds. The RS e-Tron GT has 637 horsepower and 830 Nm of torque and can accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 3.3 seconds. Is it worth it? The distance covered has been lowered to 481 kilometers.

The e-Tron SUV and Sportback, in comparison to the GT, are a more conservative alternative for everyday green driving. The e-Tron siblings have a conservative style that resembles a classic Audi SUV, but with details like the partly enclosed grille tossed into hint at its all-electric basis. The SUV comes with a choice of battery packs – e-Tron 50 and e-Tron 55 – and the Sportback (e-Tron 55 only), which sacrifices some interior room for a sportier flair.

The Jaguar I-Pace electric SUV rounds off the list. The Jaguar I-Pace was originally shown in March 2018, and the business has since stated that it would go all-electric in the future years. Returning to the I-Pace, the SUV departs from Jaguar’s usual SUV appearance with a low-slung shape and a car-forward design, with the battery pack tucked beneath the floor.
There is only one battery pack available for India – a 90kWh battery that provides the SUV a stated range of up to 470 kilometers. The dual-motor all-wheel-drive system produces 394 horsepower and 696 Nm, so there’s plenty of power.

Like the regular XC40, the XC40 Recharge is also erected on the company’s Compact Modular Architecture( CMA) platform. Except for some of the visual markings that signify its electric nature, the rest of the rudiments are analogous to the XC40.
The Volvo XC40 comes with a binary-motor powertrain with 150 kW electric motors on each axle that produce 402 bhp and 660 Nm of peak necklace. The binary-electric motors are powered by a 78 kWh battery pack that offers claimed range of over 418 km. Volvo claims that the SUV can achieve 0- 100 kmph in4.9 seconds( claimed).
