A lot of electric cars/concepts were showcased at this year's Auto Expo and a bunch of them are coming our way

Automobile manufacturers are betting big on alternative fuel vehicles and that was visible at this year’s Auto Expo. Almost every carmaker had an electric car on display at its stall to highlight its preparedness for the EV revolution that's set to take on India. Here are 6 electric cars that we are charged up about.  

Mahindra eKUV100

Mahindra e-KUV100

Mahindra showcased the electric KUV100 at the Auto Expo 2018. The eKUV100 looks similar to the regular version except for the redesigned front bumper and an EV badging on the tailgate. The new eSUV from Mahindra has a claimed range of 140km thanks to that lithium-ion battery, which Mahindra says can be charged to 80 per cent in less than an hour. Importantly, the eKUV100 is coming to India this year. Intrigued and want to get your hands on it? Check out our full story here

Both the cars look similar to their existing versions. However, Tata has given enough to set them apart, in the form of blue ‘EV’ decals around the body and EV badging on grill, sides and the tailgate. The Tiago and Tigor EVs are powered by an electric powertrain supplied by Electra EV and have a claimed range of 130km. Want to know more about the electric duo? Click here.

BMW i3s

BMW i3s

BMW showed off the i3s at the Auto Expo 2018. It is an updated and sportier version of the i3 electric hatchback which was showcased back in 2014. The i3s looks quite similar to the i3 electric but gets some subtle changes to set it apart. However, the most vital change is on the mechanical side as it gets a more powerful electric motor which produces 184PS and 270Nm, 14PS and 20Nm more than the standard car.
