But do you know where all of it began for us proud Indians?
The EVs were first seen in 1996 in India. Named ‘’Vikram Safa’’, the three-wheeled vehicle was invented by Scooter's India Pvt Ltd and approximately 400 units of these were made and sold that year! Fast-forwarding to the 2000s, Chetan Maini also known as the founder of the first electric car in India, launched REVA, a small electric car which was created and innovated in Bangalore.
Initially, the popularity of EVs had not caught the trend due to the lack of awareness, low speed, & short range.
But now the rise in awareness, affordability, better performance, incredible innovation, & hopeful impacts on the environment have led to consumers to make the right choice of EVs.
