In view of the demand for electric cars in the country, now the process of making them at a low cost has started. In fact, an Ahmedabad-based company, Gensol Engineering, has claimed that it is working on a plan to provide electric cars to customers for around Rs 6 lakh. India-based renewable energy solutions provider Gensol Engineering last week formalized a partnership with a US-based EV startup. Gensol Engineering aims to harness the R&D facilities of EV startups to create indigenously manufactured EVs in India. The company is also seeing an increase in revenue of Rs 500-600 crore for the financial year 2024.

According to a media report, Anmalo Singh Jaggi, Managing Director of Gensol, says that there is a need for an affordable electric car in India. Here you need a car whose price is 5-6 lakh rupees. Jaggi says that there is a need for major changes in the Indian electric vehicle manufacturing industry. This can happen only if electric cars are sold in the country for less than Rs 5 lakh.

Tata Tigor is currently the cheapest electric car in India, priced at Rs 12.4 lakhs. Gensol Engineering provides concept-to-commissioning solar advisory, execution, and operation services for solar projects in India and abroad.
