With pollution on the rise in many cities in India, these electric vehicles are a solution to the problem for people who care about the environment.
A Sustainable Move
Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar arrived for the winter session of Parliament in an electric car recently. He told a news agency that the government was gradually switching to pollution-free cars. He urged people to also do likewise or use public transport.
These are the cars in India which are fully electric.
Hyundai Kona Electric
This was the car that Javadekar chose to make his entry for the Parliamentary session in. The car has a 134hp permanent-magnet synchronous electric motor. This is powered by a high-voltage 39.2 kWh advanced lithium-ion polymer battery. The car can do a maximum range of 452 km on a full charge. The battery can be fully charged in seven to eight hours using standard charging. Fast charging of the battery can go to 80 per cent in 54 minutes.
Tata Tigor EV
With a 21.5 kWh battery pack, the car can do 213 km on a single charge. The car has two charging ports for fast charging and slow AC charging. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was seen using the car to arrive for the Monsoon session of the state assembly. He had praised the vehicle's design as well as its lack of sound. He called it comfortable back in July.
The car can do 140km on a single charge with its electric motor and a 72V lithium-ion battery pack. The battery can be fully charged in one hour and 45 minutes using a fast charger. With a regular charger, it takes about eight hours to charge. The e-Verito's top speed is 86 kmph. It is available in three variants.
