Delhi : Future launches from companies like Mahindra, Tata Motors, and others are expected to help the nation's EV automobile market grow. Unlike their gasoline-powered counterparts, electric cars don't emit any pollutants, which reduces air pollution.

XUV.e8 Mahindra

The XUV.e8, one of the first-Born Electric vehicles from the forthcoming manufacturer, is projected to enter production first and go on sale around December 2024. It is also anticipated to include an all-wheel drive system with a two-motor arrangement and an 80kWh battery pack. The forthcoming EV is anticipated to have an output of 227 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque. The production-ready vehicle is predicted to retain the concept's distinctive design, which included a closed-off grille, copper accents on the front grille, new headlights, a fog lamp assembly, and more. Although it is too soon to make predictions about the EV's pricing, rumors indicate that it will be high.

Suzuki Maruti eVX

In the second half of 2024, Maruti Suzuki intends to market an electric SUV based on the eVX concept, which was shown during the 2023 Auto Expo. With its 60kWh battery pack, the eVX SUV idea has a range of about 550 kilometers. The battery with a real-world range of around 500 kilometers is anticipated to remain in the version that is ready for production. Some of the aesthetic cues from the Maruti Suzuki eVX concept that will probably be included in the actual vehicle include a blanked-off grille, enormous wheel arches, V-shaped headlights with LED DRLs, a sloping roofline, and a sloped rear windscreen. For those who don't know, the business will make its electric vehicle debut with the forthcoming electric SUV based on the eVX concept.

Tata Punch EV

Probably later this year, the eagerly awaited Tata Punch EV will be available for purchase. It will have a liquid-cooled battery, a permanent magnet synchronous motor, and Tata's Ziptron technology. Although there hasn't been a formal announcement, industry rumors suggest that the EV and Tiago EV could share certain mechanical details. The next Punch EV is expected to sport a new 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a revised two-spoke steering wheel with an illuminated emblem in the middle and haptic touch controls, similar to the Tata Curvv concept, and other comforts. After the debut, it will compete with the Hyundai Exter, the MG Comet, and other automobiles. 

Hyundai Creta EV 

By the beginning of 2025, it's projected that the popular Creta SUV's electric version would be available in India. It is said to share a powertrain with the Hyundai Kona EV, which features a 100kW permanent magnet synchronous motor and a 39.2kWh lithium-ion battery that allows for a claimed driving range of 452 kilometers, even if specific specs are yet unclear. The MG ZS EV and the upcoming Tata Curvv EV are two competitors for the market that the Creta EV will face.
