“Someday all cars will go electric!”

Very few people believed that this 20th-century prophecy would materialise into reality. Yet, fully electric vehicles (EV) have started gaining such mileage, it is estimated that by 2050 at least 50% of the total global fleet will be powered by electric batteries. 

Besides their undisputed environmental advantages, EVs tend to have a low centre of gravity, which improves handling, comfort and overall drivers’ safety. According to some studies, on average, driving an EV costs 10% less than its petrol-run counterpart.

While these are excellent reasons to go green, we picked a few locally available EVs to melt your hearts.

MG E-ZS: Affordable Comfort

At Rs 1.9 million, the MG E-ZS, with a total output of 110kw with a 325 kms range seems to be the most affordable EV at hand. Powered by a 44.5 kWh, a water-cooled lithium-ion battery, it generates up to 325km from a single charge on the WLTP combined cycle. The MG E-ZS is available at Autonexx.
