Facts vs Reality

EV Myths Busted

EVs are too expensive

Fact! The upfront cost of an EV is generally higher than a comparable ICE vehicle (especially if it’s a four-wheeler). This is due to the high cost of the lithium-ion battery which powers most EVs. Some electric scooters and bikes are already priced competitively compared to their petrol counterparts.
  • While some argue that electricity being cheaper than fuel and lower maintenance costs even out the cost of ownership over long-term usage, the gains aren’t significant enough to allure EV buyers at scale just yet.
  • Having said that, costs are expected to come down, as newer EVs launch and penetrate into the market.

EVs have limited range and I’ll be left stranded

EVs don't make sense without a full-fledged charging infrastructure

EVs are not entirely eco-friendly

EVs are unsafe

EVs are not meant for apartment-dwellers

EV buyers don't have enough options to choose from

    India's First Electric Car

    A decade before the Mahindra Reva EV was launched, a small electrical company called Eddy Current Controls was developing India’s first electric car. The Lovebird broke cover in 93 as a small, two-seater EV that promised to be cheaper to run than a motorcycle or scooter of the time. Despite the claim of frugality, sales volumes remained low. At a time when Maruti was motivating Indians to upgrade to its Maruti 1000 sedan (later, the Esteem), the Eddy Lovebird was essentially a road-going golf cart.

    Some EVs can power a house

    If you think electric cars are any less useful than ICE vehicles, think again. Some global EVs such as the Ford F-150 Lightning and Nissan Leaf are capable of powering your house during an outage for multiple days. Moreover, carmakers are developing newer tech for two-way power transfer from a wall charger. Even government agencies understand the potential of this technology to be useful during disaster management when the power grid is down.

    Nexon EV is the most popular electric car

    The Tata Nexon EV isn’t the most affordable electric car you can buy in India, but it tops EV sales charts nonetheless. It’s powered by Tata’s Ziptron technology and has a floor-mounted battery and a 130PS electric motor. Despite its weight and subcompact SUV size, in Sport mode the Nexon EV can keep up with even turbo-petrol cars in its price segment. Its real-world range and quiet, comfortable ride are a winning formula, but it remains to be seen if the SUV can hold its own against new, affordable EV models expected in 2022.

    First Electric Two-Wheeler

    What if we told you that EV two-wheelers aren't a recent phenomenon and existed in the 19th century?! The first patent dates all the way back to 1895, over a decade before one of the world’s first mass market cars, the Ford Model T, went into production. In 1896, an English company, Humber, showcased its first electric bicycle, intended only for the race track. It had a motor placed in front of the rear wheel, and speed was controlled by a resistor placed across the handlebar.
