EV Sales Data: FY2023
The new Financial year has begun and it’s time to close the old books but that doesn’t mean that we become oblivious to the previous figures. Therefore, we have marked all the facts and figures from the previous year’s EV sales data. So, let’s buckle up and get ready for a thrilling ride and make the most of this article.
In a game-changing moment for the Indian electric vehicle (EV) industry, sales have soared past the one million mark in a single fiscal year, marking an impressive 155% YoY growth. The surge in demand has led to six consecutive months of sales exceeding 100,000 units, with a staggering 131,175 units sold in March 2023 alone. These figures are a testament to the growing preference for EVs in India, as consumers seek out sustainable and cost-effective alternatives to petrol and diesel vehicles.
E2W & E3W: Performance
Now, let’s talk about the dynamic duo that’s taking the electric vehicle industry by storm – the two-wheeler and three-wheeler. And you might be wondering, why not the four-wheeler?
Well, let me ask you this – when was the last time you saw an electric four-wheeler on the roads? Not many, right? That’s because the sales of electric two and three-wheelers are soaring high due to less range and price anxiety that people have for four-wheelers. It’s simple math. However, there is no denying the electric four-wheeler is growing and thus we have incorporated sales data of E4W in the article below.
The two and three-wheelers are the true heroes of this story, making electric mobility accessible and affordable for everyone. Whether you’re commuting to work or zipping around the city, these vehicles have got you covered.
