India’s journey on the road to electric car adoption has so far been slow-paced. But given the hazardous levels of air pollution, especially in the urban cities and increasing government momentum, the automobile makers are seeking this as an opportune time to make the most of this situation. There are many electric cars set to hit the Indian roads in 2020. The centre has also sanctioned more than 2,600 new charging stations across 62 Indian cities for this year,  under the second phase of FAME India scheme.

The Indian government is targeting to set up at least one charging station in most of the selected cities in a grid of 4 km x 4 km.

The car company debuted the Indian market with MG Hector.

Kia Motors, on the other hand, is lying low with its EV launch in India. The company made it big with its Seltos sports utility vehicle launch in India and sold nearly 45,000 units within just four months of the launch. The company, however, is hesitant about its electric cars in India but has plans of building electric vehicles for the Indian market at its Anantapur plant in Andhra Pradesh.
