Electric cars in 2019 were launched without much fanfare, especially in the initial few months of the year. However, the newer models to be launched are expected to witness a surge in demand and attention from consumers, especially in line with global concerns over global warming and climate change.
Automobile manufacturers have also taken heed of customer feedback from previous years and acted on it for improved designs and productivity outputs. The driving range for newer models is expected to be higher than those of electric cars in 2019, while full charging of batteries is expected to be completed earlier.
With several new models coming out, you’re sure to be spoiled for choice. To help you out, here’s a handy list of the top electric car launches this year and the next. If you’re opting for any of the cars from the range at your disposal, don’t forget to opt for comprehensive car insurance, to ensure you can enjoy continued security and provide adequate maintenance. You can apply for car insurance on Finserv MARKETS and avail cashless servicing at more than 4,000 garages across the country. Additionally, you get access to 24×7 car roadside assistance, which can help you in unexpected emergencies, regardless of where you are.
Read on to learn about the new electric cars that are all set to hit the Indian market in the later bits of 2019 and 2020.
Along with being a stunning automobile, this electric car, with a combined peak power of 402bhp and peak torque of 765Nm, is set to heavily change the perception of electric cars not being powerful enough. In just 5.1 seconds, the car will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h. This offering is the company’s first electric vehicle to be mass produced, and its stunning appearance adds to the charm. Expected to be priced around Rs. 65 Lakhs, this car ensures higher power and control through a 4Matic or a fully variable 4-wheel drive.
With an ability to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in just 4.5 seconds, this car can produce up to 320kW of power which further boosts up to 370kW. Its driving range is supposed to be 500kms, which will make it ideal for not only short commutes but also for trips out of the city. Priced at around Rs. 1.5 crore, the Audi A3 e-tron Sportback is impressive to behold with its expansive panels, virtual side mirrors and illuminated rings.
Compared to the models above, this electric car is expected to be more affordable. Priced at Rs. 6 Lakhs, the Tata Tiago Electric features a 85KW motor which is liquid cooled and ensures a top speed of 135kmph. A driving range of over 100km and the ability to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in less than 11 seconds is going to see this model become very popular once it hits the market.
This entry-level offering by Mahindra & Mahindra is powered by a 30KW motor, and can go up to 140km with a single charge. While not too many details have been revealed by the company, this car is expected to cost around Rs. 8 Lakhs.
With an expected price tag of Rs. 5 Lakhs, the Tata Nano Electric is said to possess a 48-volt electric motor and a driving range of 200km. While the car is said to be in use by cab aggregator Ola Cabs, it is still uncertain how soon it will be available to customers.
This electric SUV from the house of MG Motor (Morris Garages) is only the second car to be released by this premier car brand in India. The MG eZS is slated to have a driving range of 300kms with a single charge, and will be connected to the internet which will allow it to receive over-the-air updates. This feature was also part of the MG Hector SUV which was the initial offering by the company in India. The company has also announced plans to increase its sales and service locations, which will make it much more accessible for potential customers.
Electric cars in 2019 were released partially to test the waters and check audience reception to these new kinds of vehicles. Considering the line-up for 2020, it is fair to assume that automobile manufacturers have received a positive response.
