Tata Motors continues to dominate the EV market.

Sales of EV, Increased product availability, buoyant consumer demand, and an expanding charging infrastructure led to a record high of 81,870 electric passenger vehicles sold in CY2023. Tata Motors continues to dominate the Indian auto market with a 73% market share, followed by MG Motor India and Mahindra & Mahindra. There were 2,582 luxury vehicles sold in 2016, representing a 355% increase over the previous year.

We can observe on our roads an increasing number of green-plated SUVs, sedans, and more recently hatchbacks, indicating the shift towards e-mobility on four wheels. Despite the higher initial price of electric vehicles in comparison to petrol and diesel, more and more passengers are choosing to purchase a wallet-friendly EV over their petrol or diesel counterparts.

In retail sales, this movement can be observed. According to Vahan, in the 12 months of CY2023, 81,870 electric cars, SUVs, and MPVs were sold. This represents an increase of 43,613 units, a growth of 114% YoY (CY2022: 38,257 units).
