The PluginIndia team was invited by Tata Motors to test the all new Tata Tigor EV electric car which had an upgrade Ziptron powertrain.
The new Tigor EV with Ziptron technology, comes with GNCAP 4-star rating. Tata Motors claims that the Tigor EV comes with an ARAI-certified range of 306 kms (under standard testing conditions).
But we wanted to know if if can it complete 200 km per charge on the highway?

The PluginIndia team had the opportunity to create content on the award winning Jaguar I-PACE electric car. We asked the JLR team if we could also do a EV Community meet along with test rides. The JLR team agreed and we organized the event at our friend's biogas farm, which we featured last year. Here is the video and writeup on the wonderful community meetup.
Join us in analyzing the OLA S1 Electric Scooter launch event. In this article and video we go through the OLA scooter launch event and find, what impressed us and what concerned us.
The PluginIndia team had visited a new electric two wheeler manufacturer - Rowwet Mobility. They have 4 models of electric scooters and also plan to launch some motorcycles. We got an opportunity to test the Eleq model, which is a high speed electric scooter. Here are my thoughts.
The PluginIndia team visited a TVS dealer to test the iQube electric scooter. Here are our initial impressions of the iQube.
The PluginIndia team got a chance to visit a Pune eBike startup - Felidae Electric, who are working on manufacturing eBikes, that are Made In India. The startup manufacturers all the electronics components like motor, controller, LCD displays, battery packs in house. This makes Felidae very unique among the eBike sellers in India, who import entire eBikes from China and other countries. A true Make in India story among the Indian eBike/EV industry.

We undertook a drive from Delhi to Kochi in an MG ZS EV. The confidence to do this was in part inspired by the fact that we had completed a round trip from Delhi to Pune earlier in Jan 21. So at least part of the route was well known to us. My effort in penning our experience is primarily to highlight the lessons learnt in driving an EV long distance over a period of 6 days, through 8 states through the lockdown imposed by the pandemic.

The PluginIndia team - Abhishek, Farah and yours truly had a wonderful opportunity to visit the PURE EV factory in the month of January, 2021. This is my blog on the observations made when meeting people from different departments - Design, Battery RnD, Factory, Sales, Service and MIS. All in all we are very impressed by the work being done here at PURE. They are investing in real RnD and this company is a big part of the Indian EV industry now. And the expectation levels have only increased!

There is a lot of misinformation in the mainstream media about the benefits of electric vehicles. In the blog/video, we bust many myths and we show how electric scooters offer huge social and societal benefits for India.
There is a lot of misinformation in the mainstream media about the cost of electric vehicles. In the blog/video, we bust this myth and we show how petrol scooters cost same as electric scooters and you always save money when it comes to total cost of ownership when using an EV.
In this video and blog we dissect the article from AutoCarIndia which shows how Maruti is playing the delay EV game by not launching even a single electric car even in 2021. We also talk about how the pollution vehicle media plays along and does not hold the car industry accountable.
