Here is the list of all upcoming electric cars which are expected to launch in India in the year 2023-
1. Tata Tiago EV
The Tata Tiago EV, which was introduced in India in September, is at the top of the list. The electric vehicle will go on sale in January 2023. Tiago EV bookings are already underway, with the first 20,000 customers receiving the vehicle at an introductory price of Rs 8,49,000. (ex-showroom). The EV is TATA Motors’ most affordable electric vehicle in the country. Tiago EV is available in four different configurations: XE, XT, XZ+, and XZ+ Tech LUX.
In terms of drivetrain specs, both the XE and XT models have a 45kW electric motor, while the XZ+ and XZ+ Tech LUX have a 55kW motor. The EVs on the lower two models and XZ+ models are powered by 19.2kWh and 24kWh battery packs, respectively. In terms of charging, Tata includes a 3.3kW wall box charger with all Tiago EV models, which can charge the battery cell from 10% to 100% in about 5 hours. The XZ+ and XZ+ Tech Lux models also have a 7.2kW AC charger as an option.
2. Tata Altroz EV
The Tata Altroz EV is expected to join Tata Motors’ extensive EV lineup as early as the first quarter of 2023. The Altroz EV, an all-electric alternative to the Altroz currently on sale in India, was unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and is expected to share many features with its siblings, including the same electric powertrain, power distribution unit, and battery pack. Connected car technology will also be available, directing drivers to the nearest charging station when necessary.
3. Hyundai Ioniq 5
Hyundai has just unveiled its much-anticipated electric offering in India, the Ioniq 5. It is built on the same E-GMP EV platform as the Kia EV6 and thus shares the same foundation. It joins a growing list of premium and long-range EVs from non-luxury manufacturers. According to reports, India will receive a 72.2kWh battery pack with a range of 631km (ARAI-claimed) and will only be available in rear-wheel drive. The power and torque figures for the India-spec model are 217hp and 350Nm, respectively.
Because it will be assembled locally, the Ioniq 5 will almost certainly be cheaper than the EV6. It is expected to cost less than Rs 50 lakh.
4. Citroën e-C3
The electric Citroen C3 will be based on the ICE-powered Citroen C3, with the only differences being a charging port on the front fender and a drive controller instead of a gear lever. With the e-C3, Citroen will provide buyers with a 3.3kW onboard AC charger, as well as CCS2 fast charging support. It will also have more features than the C3, such as cruise control, rear wiper and washer, and automatic climate control.
5. Mahindra XUV400
The Mahindra XUV400 is the company’s first electric SUV, set to go on sale in January 2023. Mahindra revealed several details about the vehicle during its official unveiling in September 2022. The XUV400 is powered by a single motor that produces 147.5bhp peak power and 310Nm torque. This motor allows the EV to accelerate from 0 to 100kmph in 8.3 seconds.
A 39.4kWh battery pack powers the XUV400 and can be charged from 0 to 80 percent in 50 minutes using the DC fast charger. The Mahindra XUV400 is expected to cost between Rs 18 lakh and Rs 20 lakh (ex-showroom) and will compete with Tata’s Nexon EV Max.
6. Mg Air EV
MG has recently announced that its two-door compact car will be on display at the upcoming 2023 Auto Expo in India. The tiny EV is just 2.9 metres long and has a battery capacity of 20 kWh to 25 kWh, making it their entry-level product for our market. On a full charge, it is expected to have a range of 100-200 km and a maximum power of 40bhp.
7. Volkswagen ID.4
Volkswagen has confirmed that it is testing the ID.4 in India, which will be the brand’s first EV in the country and is based on the MEB electric platform. India is likely to get the high-performance ID.4 GTX models, which have one motor on each axle. The motors produce 299hp and 460Nm of torque when combined. It has a top speed of 180kph and can sprint from 0 to 100kph in 6.2 seconds.
8. Skoda Enyaq iV
Skoda may make its debut in the Indian EV segment with the release of the Enyaq iV in 2023. The automaker is expected to bring the vehicle’s top-end variant, which features dual motors with a total power of 265bhp and can accelerate from 0 to 100kmph in about 6.9 seconds. A 77kWh battery pack capable of 125kW DC fast charging could be installed under the hood.
This battery pack, when combined with Volkswagen’s MEB platform, has a claimed range of 513km. The EV will also have high-end internal features like a 13-inch touch-enabled screen for entertainment and navigation, a digital instrument control, ambient lighting, and more. The Skoda Enyaq iV is expected to be priced around Rs 60 lakh in India.
9. Volvo C40 Recharge
The C40 Recharge, a coupe SUV version of the XC40 Recharge, will be Volvo’s second EV in India. Unlike the SUV on which it is based, the C40 Recharge will not have an ICE counterpart. It will be available in India with a dual-motor setup that produces 408hp and 660Nm and has a range of 433km with a 75kWh battery. The XC40 Recharge and C40 Recharge have a similar appearance, but the C40 Recharge has a sloping roofline. Another distinction is the redesigned rear end, which includes a small spoiler and new tail lamps.
10. Volvo EX90
The EX90 is Volvo’s third EV, but it is the first to use the company’s new SPA2 platform. The EX90 will initially be available with a twin-motor, all-wheel drive powertrain with two output levels. The base model generates 408hp and 770Nm of torque, while the higher ‘Performance’ models generate 517hp and 910Nm of torque. Both will have a top speed of 180kph. Later, single-motor versions will be released. The e-motors are linked to a 111kWh battery with a range of up to 600 kms.
