The electric segment in India is gaining momentum as we speak and Tata Nexon EV is the first home-made electric SUV made as a mass-market product.
During the expedition, the EV had to tackle harsh weather conditions like low temperatures, continuous snowfall and icy tarmacs.
As India heads towards the EV revolution, we put the top 2 contenders in the segment against each other.
In a step to promote the growth of electric vehicles in India, the Central Government has placed orders with Hyundai Motor Co for the Kona electric compact SUV.
Power and new and renewable energy minister Raj Kumar Singh, and NTPC chairman and managing director Gurdeep Singh have already started using the Kona.
Last month, Hyundai sold a total of 16,234 units of Creta, Venue, Tucson and Kona Electric, while in comparison M&M sold 16,003 utility vehicles (UVs).
The cut in GST rates could mean that the price of Hyundai's all-electric SUV could go down by Rs 1.5 lakh. However, no confirmation from the company has been out yet.
In addition to the ones that are compatible with the new Hyundai Kona, MapMyIndia also provides with the location of the nearest EV charging stations in all the major cities.
