India Becoming the Electric Vehicle HotSpot

India has become an attractive market for electric vehicles as the government of India is keen on accelerating EV in the country. Many new manufacturers have flocked to the Indian market to grab a piece of cake in the EV segment. With high levels of localisation, manufacturers are also eligible to receive subsidies from the government of India. The government is also offering various incentives to the buyers, such as tax rebates and discounts. State governments are also offering incentives to EV owners.
