Will electric cars be cheaper in India?
Battery is about 40% of the price of an electric car.
Battery prices have historically continued to fall, with Li-ion battery prices hitting the 200 USD per kWh level within a short time.
Battery prices are expected to go down to around USD 100 per 2024.
Thereafter there will be room for further reduction, unless limited. New types of batteries or technology emerge. Thus prices may fall for some time, partly due to promotion discounts.
But major reductions are not expected, as prices will be reduced by higher battery sizes (giving better range), BMS (battery management software) and improvements in motor and power train. Remember, on a per km basis, the cost of an ICE car to drive EVs is around 1 / 4th, and therefore make up for its higher capital costs from lower operating costs.
Mercedes-Benz EQC in India
The EQC is Mercedes-Benz’s first standalone EV model and falls under the brand new EQ sub-brand for electric mobility.
With dimensions somewhere between the GLC and GLE, it offers mid-range space and practicality, but with a claimed electric motor of 408hp and a claimed range of up to 471km from its 80kWh battery, it makes sense for its ICE siblings There is a completely different proposal.
However, it promises the same luxury level as any other top tier Mercedes.

The latest update has been brought in a higher capacity battery which has extended the 213 km range.
The Tigor EV is an interesting choice for those with zero emission motoring, but the high asking price limits the car’s appeal.
Save for a few stickers and badges, the Tigor EV has little to offer other than the combustion engine-powered versions of the Tata Tigor.
t has got an interesting shape with a coupe-like roof that gives the car a pleasing view. The Tigor EV is also done neatly inside.
The dashboard is smartly laid out, the seats are neatly fastened and the cabin is visible.
However, there are some differences with the standard Tigor.
For one, the tachometer makes way for a state of charge. In addition, the luggage room is down to a restrictive 255 liters, with the spare wheel positioned in the boot under the floor.
