Although electric cars were introduced in India long ago, their range was limited and their designs were poor. However, with the advancements in batteries and design, it is likely that electric vehicles will be the dominant market for the next decade. These are the top upcoming electric cars for India:

.1 Tata Tigor EV Tata Motors displayed the Tigor EV during 2018 Auto Expo. Along with Mahindra, the company has been granted a deal to supply EVs for government officials. The company has already delivered 350 units to EESL. The second phase of the supply will start in 2019. The Tigor EV follows the same design as regular Tigor. People won’t recognize it except for the EV badges. Tata Motors gave a smaller battery to Tigor EV in order to keep the price down. An increasing battery would make Tigor more expensive for many people. Tata Tigor Electric Vehicle uses a 216 Ah 16V battery and a 3-Phase AC Motor to produce 39.95 horsepower. This is a significant improvement over the Tigor’s combustion engine. The Tigor EV claims a range of 130km, which is sufficient for city driving or daily driving. It also has a top speed exceeding 100 kph. Tata Motors claims that the Tigor EV can charge from zero to 80 percent in as little as 90 minutes using a fast charger, and three hours with a normal charger. Tata Motors offers a regenerative brake system to increase range. The electric motor is connected to a single-speed automatic transmission, and power is transmitted to the front wheels. The electric motors produce instant torque, which allows for good acceleration. Tata Motors has placed EV letters in blue on the front grille and EV stickers on the sides to signal that this is not a regular Tigor. The interior of Tigor EV is the same as before. It has same features such as climate control, push-button start, keyless entry, alloy wheels and an infotainment system that includes Bluetooth.
