The Tata Tigor EV clocked the highest number of sales during this period (669 units), followed by the Mahindra e-Verito which clocked 563 units. Hyundai sold 292 units of the Kona Electric, while just 30 units of the Mahindra e2o were sold.

MG plans to enter the EV space with the ZS EV. The car is scheduled to be launched later this month. The company claims that it has already received 2,100 bookings for the car.

So it all finally boils down to this - EV sales as a percentage of overall sales. This means EVs have a marketshare of 0.05% (if I got my math right). On the bright side, this is probably more than Mitsubishi's marketshare.

EVs have a long, long way to go.

This is without any modern EVs available in the country in volume. With that happening this year, we can see the market share shoot up really fast. The only limiting factor will be availability at this point, not price, not charging infrastructure, not lack of policies.

All this is so exciting, we are probably witnessing the big change in the automotive sector, which will affect the entire industry in terms of engineering, sales, after sales, hiring strategies and what not. 100 years of achievement in the development of the ICE can possibly be left absolute with this. Today the market share might be nothing but we all know where this is headed. Amazing isn't it?

Yes, Its indeed exciting. Sometimes, we underestimate the change / revolution which is on its way. Amazon launching electric delivery vehicles, MG & Tata Motors launching 2 good SUV this month, electric charging stations coming up in metro cities. Its only matter of time since EV becomes mainstream and we are already at beginning of the S-shaped technology adoption curve. The only question now is how much is the time frame of this S-shaped innovation curve? 5 years or 10 years or higher?
