India is moving towards adopting zero emission vehicle ecosystem. Even various state and central governments are planning to provide incentives to both end consumers and manufacturers to promote the adoption of electric vehicles.
It is no exaggeration to say that the market is heating up for these new age vehicles to work by brands like Ather, Ola Electric and MG Motors. With the introduction of Ora’s S1 and S1 Pro, there has been a rapid increase in the number of electric motorcycles in India, but it is not only economical but is now a product that seems unlikely. We look forward to the electric vehicle segment, which compromises in terms of range and build quality.
South Korean brand Hyundai and its sub-brand Kia are reportedly planning to introduce six new EVs in the Indian market over the next three years, driven by growing needs.

According to the report, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 will be available in 2022 out of the six cars to be launched in India in the next few years. In terms of specifications, both the cars could be equipped with 350kV fast charging support for 58Kwh charging. Up to 80% battery in just 18 minutes.
Both the cars are expected to come in a range of 400km and 2WD for the entry level. The Kia EV6 will be available next year, but the Ioniq 5 could be available a year later.
The following list is the facelift of the Hyundai Kona and the Kia e-Niro. The WLTP range of the E-Niro is expected to be 289km and 455km respectively, while the WLTP range of the Kona is slightly higher at 305km and 484km respectively. The e-Niro could be launched in 2024.
Last but not least, all the above mentioned cars are expected to be at a premium price, but both Hyundai and Kia are planning to come up with a slightly more affordable electric car. Electric vehicles in these large markets are expected to be launched in 2024 and are localized to meet the criteria set out in the FAME II subsidy, and the starting price of these vehicles is around Rs. 150,000 Rs.
The car is expected to come with a smaller battery pack and a slightly shorter range than is otherwise ideal for city driving.
Analysis: The road to electrification is ready, now all we need is one vehicle
The federal government has also confirmed that the all-electric vehicle charging ecosystem is in operation, as several major players such as Tesla and Triton are in the process of being introduced in the Indian market.
The recent announcement of a 200 km all-electric highway from Delhi to Jaipur will help car owners to switch power with confidence. And, as the journey has just begun, the market now needs a more everyday car that can offer a non-compromising experience.
The end consumer is ready and excited to adopt electric vehicles, but in a market like India, vehicle affordability and battery life are of utmost concern. However, this can be improved only if traditional players like Maruti and Mahindra join the trend.
