Two new electric SUVs, the Morris Garrage ZS EV and Tata Nexon EV will hit the India market, in about two weeks’ time. While many other like Audi Etron, Kia Soul, Jaguar i-Pace, Renault City K-ZE, Nissan Leaf and Maruti Suzuki WagonR EV are debuting in the next week. Mahindra, is also planning some really big products like eKUV100 and super-specialist Battista sports car.
Experts have underlined the issues of availability of infrastructure to charge these vehicles. Also, the industry experts are demanding that the government has to reduce GST rates on import of components required for charging infrastructure, then the industry will become even more competitive.

The younger generation is driven for innovation, sustainability and environmental conservation. At the same time, by manufacturing vehicles, components and batteries together, various established conglomerates and startups are ensuring indigenous availability of products. According to experts all these will help in generating good demand for the year 2020.
