An Informed Look At Luxury EVs Available In India

The world of electric cars available in India is not crowded, yet confusing. We hope that this infographic on electric cars priced between 3.5 million and 10 million rupees will help you take an informed decision. Please keep in consideration that the number of EVs slated to be launched in the country will only increase from here, and we at MOVES and EFY will do our best to help you make wise decisions

Cons

• No adaptive suspension makes the ride a little stiff on some roads
• White interiors might be tough to keep clean after a few years
• Rear windshield seems to be a magnet for dust, potentially due to the spoiler design redirecting air onto the windshield (not verified)

Volvo XC40 Recharge

Pros

• Easier ingress and egress for rear seats compared to C40 Recharge

BMWi4

Pros

• Sedan with great aesthetics
• Excellent performance for driving, much better than other vehicles in this writeup since it is a sedan
