Tata Tigor EV | Rs 12.77 lakh | Probably not the best choice of the lot, but the Tigor EV has come a long way since its launch back in 2019. Back then it was only available for commercial buyers, but recently Tata has made it available for individual buyers. The Tigor EV gets a 21.5 kWh battery pack with a motor that churns out 41 PS of power and 105 Nm of torque. Range is rated at 213 km on a full charge.

Mahindra eVerito | Rs 12.94 lakh | The Mahindra eVerito is the oldest electric car to be on sale today, but this also means that it sports some outdated features. The eVerito gets a 18.5 kWh battery pack paired with a motor that produces only 41 PS and 91 Nm. This means the car can just barely keep up with city traffic and the range too isn’t all that much to speak about - 140 km.
