Electric vehicles to get cheaper by up to Rs 2.5 lakh

Come April 1, electric vehicles will get cheaper by Rs 20,000 to Rs 2.5 lakh, following the government’s go-ahead to Niti Aayog’s proposal to give purchase rebate as incentive to buyers.

The Union cabinet had on Thursday approved incentive of Rs 10,000 per KWH for purchase of e-vehicles directly linked to battery size under the FAME II (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicle) scheme.

This will spell a saving of Rs 20,000-40,000 for two-wheelers fitted with battery of 2-4 kwh, rs 50,000-100,000 for three-wheelers (5-10 kwh) and Rs 1.5-2.5 lakh for four-wheelers (15-25 kwh battery).

Great move by the government to end the monopoly of maruti, India will now move on Teslas. True visionaries, only disappointment is the increase in fuel prices, it should have been atleast a rs50 increase every year.
In the next budget I expect tax cuts on the prices of rockets.
