Top 10 Upcoming Electric Cars under Rs 10 and 20 Lakhs in India: Find the latest prices, range, colors, images, specifications and more

Ever since their introduction into the Indian automobile market, Electric cars have become very popular among all classes of society. The 19th century saw the dawn of electric vehicles. Initially, they did not perform well in the market because of the high cost, short range, and low speed. So initially, the demand for electric vehicles declined all over. Cut to the 21st century, concern for the environment has become a priority. 

In such a situation gas powered vehicles which emit a lot of smoke are very harmful to the atmosphere. This is why the interest in electric vehicles has increased. Electric cars became popular in urban areas where their range was not disadvantaged.  There are no vibrations or sounds. Companies are trying to develop affordable electric cars to counter the misnomer that electric cars are expensive.  As of now, electric vehicles contribute only 0.29%  of the overall vehicle registration in India. So what are the upcoming EVs in India?  Are they worth buying?  What is the running cost?
