Electric vehicles in India got a boost recently when several states announced their individual electric vehicle policies. These EV policies encourage buyers to buy electric vehicles instead of petrol-diesel. In some places, there is no RTO fee or road tax to be paid for buying an EV. Electric vehicles are also very economical to operate. The cost of driving a kilometer of car in many cars is less than a rupee. It is cheaper than a CNG car. Also, its car maintenance cost is very less. Electric vehicles are also preferred across the world due to their zero emissions.
Disadvantages of electric vehicle
Even after having so many advantages, the demand for EV in India lags behind. The main reason for this is their high price. Electric vehicles cost more than normal cars. Even the electric two-wheelers cost a lot as compared to their ICE counterpart. This is because of the high cost of the batteries used in them. Apart from this, lack of EV charging stations in the country. Finding a charging station is a big task for EV users right now. Even if someone does find a place, they are often far and few. Most of the affordable EVs offer a range of less than 400 kms on a single charge which can prove difficult for EV owners to take the risk of long drives without preparation or options.
