Table 1 - OEM Wise EV Car Registration in India In August 2023
    • Tata Motors and MG Motor India continue to be the top-selling electric four-wheeler passenger vehicle brands in India
    • Hyundai is rising in the domain, and end-consumer sales of Citroen continue to fall MoM

In what appears to be a significant pointer towards the future of electric cars in India, the August 2023 registrations of passenger electric four-wheelers (PE4Ws) were a mixed bag of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).

While Tata Motors continued to enjoy its leadership (at number one) in the PE4Ws domain, its registrations (for TATA PASSENGER ELECTRIC MOBILITY) fell approximately 14% Month on Month (MoM). In August 2023, the OEM registered 3750 electric vehicles, while in July 2023, it had registered 4340 units of the same. Please note that Tata Motors and Mercedes are registered under different names on the Vahan Portal, and this report has indicated all of them (Please see Table 1).
