Top EVs In India With Over 500km Range – June 2022 | V3Cars
While there is no denying the fact that electric mobility is the future, range anxiety is still an issue for most electric car buyers in India. With our understanding, we think that more than 500km of claimed range on a single charge could be more than enough for most of the car buyers’ commute.
Several new EVs launched in India in the past few days with a price tag north of Rs. 30 lakh are claiming a range of more than 500km. In real-world conditions, if they are able to cover even 400km+ on a single charge, we think it should be sufficient to do intercity travel along with some long drives as well. With proper planning, these EVs can make your ownership experience better and reduce your range anxiety.
