Top 10 Electric Vehicles in India in 2022

  1. Audi RS e-tron GT

Audi RS e-tron GT

Launched last year, the RS e-tron GT from Audi tops our list with its performance and price tag. It reigns as the most expensive electric vehicle on offer in the Indian market. The e-tron GT comes with 637bhp and 830Nm producing electric motors on 2 axles and a 93.4kWh battery pack. It’s a Quattro all-wheel drive and accelerates 0-100 kmph in just 3.3 seconds. Coming to the performance, the ride quality is excellent with brilliantly calibrated adaptive air suspension for a heavyweight electric vehicle. It has got no lack in aesthetics as the design is exceptionally beautiful and Audi offers all the comfort and convenience features you would like with the hefty price tag.

Ex-showroom price: Rs 2.05 Cr

The other all-electric e-tron from Audi is the GT with a slightly lower price tag. The e-tron GT is built on a J1 high-voltage platform, the same as in Porsche’s Taycan. Like the RS e-tron GT, this one also gets 2 electric motors on each axle making it a quattro all-wheel-drive that generates about 476PS and 630Nm. It claims a range of about 500 km. The acceleration time might not match that of RS e-tron GT’s as this takes 4.1 seconds to go from 0-100 kmph which is still pretty impressive. E-tron GT comes in a really drab tactical green metallic shade but that does not stop it from getting awed head turns. Such is the power of the ground-hugging, classic design of the e-tron GT.

Ex-showroom price: Rs 1.80 Cr

  1. Porsche Taycan (Rs 1.50 Cr – Rs 2.30 Cr)

Porsche Taycan

Taycan is the first-ever fully electric vehicle from Porsche and was launched in India in late November of 2021. It was already a global success before it graced the domestic markets.

  1. Jaguar I-Pace (Rs 1.08 Cr – Rs 1.12 Cr)

Jaguar I-Pace

The first fully-electric vehicle in India from Jaguar, the I-Pace is very fast and looks like a typical Jag but with a very wide stance. Supposed to be under the SUV segment, the I-Pace looks more like a crossover than like an actual SUV. It’s got opulence written all over the cabin with too many features to list them all here. I-Pace comes with two synchronous permanent magnet motors producing 395bhp and 700Nm, and a 90kWh Li-ion battery pack with a single-speed epicyclic transmission. I-Pace claims a range of 470 km. It comes in 3 variants SE, HSE and Black.

  1. Audi e-tron

Audi e-tron

Even though Audi has other all-electric models on its portfolio now, e-tron was the first in the line-up. It’s got Audi’s instantly recognizable design, twin motors and comes as a 4-wheel drive. It is amazingly quiet and has a cabin that has all the fun tech and comfort along with a panoramic glass sunroof.

In India, e-tron is available with 2 options: One is the 50 quattro, with a 71kWh battery pack, and the other is the 55 quattro, with a 95kWh battery pack. Audi claims around 350-400 km range for the e-trons.

The ZS EV sprints from 0-100 kmph in 8.5 seconds powered by a synchronous electric motor that produces up to 174 bhp of max power and 280 Nm of peak torque.

  1. Hyundai Kona Electric

Hyundai Kona electric facelift

Kona electric from Hyundai is the company’s first mainstream fully electric car. It did pretty well in the global markets with 2 battery choices, from which the smaller and more economical 39.2kWh battery pack version was chosen to be offered in the Indian market. The car claims an ARAI-tested 452 km range. Hyundai offers a decent performance with the Kona electric and a good city driving range. Meanwhile, the interiors of the Kona electric are simply not that impressive and the cabin could use some more space. Another thumbs down for this EV is that it takes around 4 hours and 50 minutes to fully charge in a normal charging station.

Ex-showroom price:

  • Kona electric Premium – Rs 23.79 Lakh
  • Kona electric Premium Dual Tone – Rs 23.98 Lakh
