As EVs are becoming more popular because of rising fuel costs and the allocation of subsidies as well as environmental issues, it’s the right time to look at the future electric vehicles that will cater to both mass and luxury purchases by 2022.

In a time where conscious purchasing is becoming a thing and is a reality, it’s an unsurprising fact that even the automotive industry is shifting toward cleaner and greener alternatives. Although the Indian streets continue to be ablaze with gas motors, the homegrown electric car maker Tata Motors selling more than 2000 units of Nexon and Tigor EVs in the month of December 2021 is a clear indication of India’s growing interest in EVs.
