The market was valued USD 1.45 billion in 2021, and USD 3.21 billion in 2022 respectively. The growth of the electric vehicle (EV) market in India is being fuelled by several key factors, including government support, heightened environmental awareness, and technological advancements. The Indian government has taken steps to promote EV adoption, offering tax breaks and subsidies for consumers, as well as investing in the development of charging infrastructure.
As individuals become more conscious of the environmental impact of traditional fossil fuel-powered vehicles, EVs are becoming increasingly popular as a more sustainable and eco-friendly alternative. Advancements in battery technology and the availability of convenient charging options have further boosted the appeal of EVs.

“The overall sentiment around the auto industry remained strong in India during 2022, propelled by pent-up demand and rising consumer buying power,” said Canalys Automotive Analyst, Ashwin Amberkar. “It is exciting times in the Indian market. New cars have premium infotainment, connectivity and driver assistance features, and there is a good appetite for new technology amongst premium buyers, despite potential economic headwinds.”
“The Indian electric vehicle market is in its nascent stage,” said Amberkar. “Tata leads in EVs with 86% market share from just two models, the Nexon EV and Tigore EV, followed by MG’s ZS EV and Hyundai’s Kona with 9% and 1.6% respectively. The most successful EVs from Tata are under US$20,000 which is the sweet spot among buyers wanting a second, city commute car. Brands such as MG, Hyundai, KIA and BYD are offering premium EVs costing over US$25,000 which predominantly attracts wealthy eco-conscious professionals and EV enthusiasts.”
