Electric vehicles are extremely popular worldwide and in India as well. Electric vehicles are hailed as the future of the global auto industry, primarily because they are more environmentally friendly than cars with internal combustion engines (ICE). Range anxiety is a real issue, but many auto manufacturers are offering electric vehicles and SUVs with long ranges as solutions. Even though our country's EV infrastructure is still suboptimal, EV adoption as an alternative to ICE vehicles is growing gradually. We have compiled a list of the top five upcoming EVs that are expected to go on sale in India in 2023-24, with models including the MG Comet EV, the Tata Punch EV, the BYD Seal, the Mahindra XUV E8, and more.

BYD Seal

At the 2023 Auto Expo, BYD displayed its electric sedan, the Seal. The EV is anticipated to go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2023 for about Rs 70 lakh (ex-showroom). The Tesla Model 3 competitor EV is built on the company's e-platform 3.0. Both an 82.5kWh and a 61.4kWh battery pack will be available for it. The larger battery offers a range of up to 700 kilometre on (CLTC – Chine light-Duty Vehicle Test Cycle). On the other hand, the smaller battery pack's claimed range is 550 kilometre.

Tata Punch EV

Tata Punch EV1

According to media reports, Tata Motors is getting ready to introduce the electric Punch micro SUV before the end of 2023. The GEN 2 (SIGMA) platform, which is essentially a heavily modified version of the ALFA architecture, will serve as its foundation. The platform will have a flat floor to accommodate a sizable battery pack and will be designed for electrification. The 26kWh battery pack from the Tiago EV and the 30.2kWh battery pack from the Nexon EV could both be used to power the small SUV.

Mahindra XUV E8 

Mahindra XUV E8

In 2022, Mahindra unveiled 5 concepts for electric SUVs based on the INGLO Born electric platform. The XUV and BE brands will be used to market these SUVs. The XUV.e8 in production form will be the first offering to be rolled out under the XUV electric brand. The new model, which is expected to go on sale in December 2024, will have a battery pack with a capacity of up to 80kWh. It is available with an all-wheel drive (AWD) system. The electric SUV's power output is expected to be between 230bhp and 350bhp.

MG Comet EV


MG Motor India will launch the brand-new Comet electric car in the nation next month. With just 2.9 metres in length, this 2-door electric vehicle will be the smallest car in India. It is even more compact than the Tata Nano. The new MG Comet EV, which is anticipated to cost around Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom), will compete with models like the Tata Tiago EV and the Citroen eC3. The battery pack choices for the Wuling Air EV and the MG Comet EV will be the same. The base model might be equipped with a 17.3kWh battery pack having a stated 200-kilometre range. With a 26.7kWh battery pack, the high-spec model is expected to have a claimed range of about 300 kilometre after a single charge.

Tata Curvv EV

Tata Curvv 1

Tata Motors will be launching the Curvv SUV Coupe in 2024, with electric and ICE powertrains. It will compete with the likes of the MG ZS EV, the Hyundai Kona EV, and the Mahindra XUV400. It is built on the GEN 2 platform, a heavily modified version of Tata's ALFA platform. It gets a coupe-like roofline, connected DRL setup, and triangular-shaped headlamps. A high-mounted stop lamp wraps around the rear windscreen of the Curvv electric SUV. The presence of wheel arch cladding on the car's side emphasises the model's SUV appearance. The front and rear bumpers, side skirtings, and alloy wheels all have grooves. Tata claims that the shape of the Curvv EV improves its aerodynamics and visual appeal. 

The interior of the electric Curv SUV is fairly simple. The steering wheel's flat bottom and the dashboard's groove design are identical. An illuminated line runs across the dashboard. As the name implies, the Curvv's entire design is made up of lines and curves. There's also a large panoramic sunroof that almost matches the rear spoiler.
