22 Electric Car Models to be Available in India Soon May 2, 2018

The Supreme Court was today told that 22 models of electric cars of various vehicle manufacturers would be available in India soon and companies like Tatas and Mahindras were pushing very hard for it. The top court, which was hearing a pollution-related matter, was apprised about it after a bench comprising Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta asked vehicle manufacturers, “what are you doing about electric cars?”

“They say that in auto shows, all kinds of electric cars are there,” the bench asked, following which one of the lawyers said that “cost is an issue”. However, another lawyer said that companies like Tatas and Mahindras were pushing hard for this and, in Delhi, several electric vehicles were being already used in government departments.
