Top 3 Upcoming Electric Cars Under Rs 10 lakh
The popularity and sales of electric vehicles are rapidly increasing in the country. That is why Indian automakers are developing and marketing new electric vehicles, helping to accelerate the transition to e-mobility and reducing environmental impact and operating costs.
People in India are looking for an affordable price tag. With this requirement in mind, Indian automakers are now developing electric cars with an affordable price tag. In this article, we list top 3 upcoming affordable electric cars under 10 lakh.
1. Tata Tiago EV
Tata Motors recently announced that the company will expand their EV range with the most anticipated all-electric version of the Tiago compact hatchback. The Tata Tiago EV is all set to make its official debut on September 28. When launched, the Tiago hatchback will be the most affordable electric hatchback in India and will likely be priced below Rs 10 lakh.

The Tiago EV was first showcased at the Auto Expo 2018 and is expected to hit Indian roads in 2020. However, the manufacturer did not market it. Tata currently selling Nexon EV, Nexon EV Max and Tigor EV.
Speaking of the Tiago EV, the car looks identical to its ICE counterpart, except for the blue accents across the grille, alloys and interior.
For now, the company has not released any information about the car. Mechanically, the Tiago EV is expected to be powered by a similar powertrain to the Tigor EV, but it could undercut the price, giving the potential customer more choice.
The upcoming Tiago EV is expected to come with a 26 kWh battery and an electric motor that delivers 74 hp and 170 Nm of torque. The battery pack in the Tiago EV is expected to provide a range of up to 310km on a single charge.
Tata recently launched the new Nexon EV Max in the Indian market for Rs 17.74 lakh for the XZ+ variant and going up to Rs 19.24 lakh for the top spec Nexon EV Max XZ+ Lux. The Nexon EV Max offers an ARAI-certified range of 437 km, thanks to the larger battery pack of 40.5 kWh.
2. MG’s electric car to compete with Nexon EV
MG Motor India offers the ZS EV in India, the second best-selling EV in India after Tata Nexon EV. MG recently launched the facelift ZS EV at a starting price of Rs 21.99 lakh. Due to the high price tag, people choose Nexon EV and Nexon EV Max.
MG Motor India recently revealed that the company is working on a new EV that will be priced at Rs 10-15 lakh. The new EV will sit below the ZS EV in the automaker’s India portfolio and is expected to use a less powerful motor and smaller battery pack. It will be a crossover based on a global platform but will be tuned and developed to meet the needs of the Indian buyer.
This will be the company’s second electric car in India and is expected to debut by the end of next fiscal year.
3. Citroen C3 EV
The all-electric Citroën C3 EV was recently spied during testing on Indian roads.
The front fender of the spied car was camouflaged and it appears to be covering the charging port. The EV will be based on the ICE C3 because the side profile and design elements look the same as its ICE counterpart. However, we expect Citroën to make some noticeable cosmetic changes to differentiate itself from the regular model.

Speaking of the powertrain and battery, it is expected to be offered with multiple battery options, including the globally specified 50 kWh battery pack with a WLTP claimed range of over 350 km, present in the Peugeot e-208 which is based on the same podium . The EV is expected to be powered by an electric motor that produces 136 hp and 260 Nm of torque. There is a possibility that the EV could also have a smaller battery pack with a range of around 300 km.
The all-electric is expected to launch in India in April 2023 with an expected starting price of Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom).
