With the ever-increasing concerns around air pollution, electric cars are coming out to be one of the solutions which can be adopted to make the world a better place. And as the awareness around this issue rises, so has the popularity of electric cars around the world. At the forefront of this craze around electric cars is Tesla which is known for making some of the most capable and value for money electric cars in the world. But now, Chairman of home-grown Mahindra Group has spoken about a way of travel in India which perhaps even a Tesla cannot match in terms of emissions.
Anand Mahindra took to Twitter to post a video of a bullock cart which had a cabin of a car towed at the back meant to help people commute. Mahindra said, in his tweet, “I don’t think @elonmusk & Tesla can match the low cost of this renewable energy-fuelled car.
