Electric vehicles are gradually gaining popularity. Costs are probably going to decrease considerably more if EVs are produced on a large scale. Sales of electric vehicles reached 3,419 units in September 2022, up 5.62% month-over-month and 172% year-over-year. Let us discuss about the top 10 electric cars in sales till Sep 2022.
Top 10 Electric Cars in Sales September 2022
Tata is still India’s top-selling PV EV brand. Tata Motors has expanded its 4W EV portfolio with the release of the Tiago EV. Tata Motors is leading the 4W EV revolution in the nation with an 82.80% market share. The combined sales of 2,831 units for Nexon EV Prime, Nexon EV Max, and Tigor EV showed positive growth of 217.02% YoY and 2.39% MoM. These gains contrast with the 893 and 2,765 units sold in September 2021 and August 2022, respectively.
Tata saw a volume gain of 1,938 units YoY and 66 units MoM. Tata’s 4W EV sales are anticipated to reach new heights and carry the segment with them once Tiago EV deliveries begin in 2023. The second-place finisher is MG ZS EV. It sold 280 units last month compared to 327 units the month before, reflecting a 14.37% YoY and 11.39% MoM decline. The MG ZS EV’s market share is 9.76%.
Surprisingly, Mahindra eVerito sales are robust, as shown by the 112 units sold last month, which is a significant increase over the 19 units sold at this time last year and the 17 units sold the month earlier. eVerito saw increase of 558.82% MoM and 489.47% YoY.
