With only 2 electric cars in this price range, we are excited to see what Hyundai will bring along with the Kona to stand out from the competition. Although the Nexon EV is priced much lower than these, since these 3 are the only affordable cars in the electric market, the Kona will also compete with it. The price is expected to be between Rs.23-25 Lacs.
Tesla Model 3
Tesla has begun its operations in full form in India. They are all set to make a debut in the Indian market. Tesla is expected to start by first rolling out its entry-level offering, the Model 3. Although we say entry-level, the prices will surely not be so. The Model 3 is expected to be priced at around a whopping Rs.60 Lacs. Tesla has not given any hints for expected dates yet, but we expect the Electric King to roll out anytime by the end of 2021.
MG ZS Petrol
The MG ZS-ev was a much-loved car. Its sleek design language, feature-loaded nature and contemporary look were loved by a lot of people. However, not everyone wants to venture out to an electric vehicle. MG has listened to its customers and it will be rolling out the ZS in the conventional Petrol trim with the name of ‘Astor’ by end of August 2021. It will compete with the Hyundai Creta, Tata Nexon, Ford Ecosport and the Skoda Kushaq. The expected price stands between Rs.12-14 Lacs.

While the Jimny has been available in the foreign markets for quite some time now, Suzuki has not yet unveiled it in the Indian Market. When it launches, the Jimny is expected to be priced at around Rs. 10 Lac figure.
The Gurkha has been in the Indian market for some time now. While it does offer excellent off-road capabilities and a rugged adventurous look, Force couldn’t manage to sell the Gurkha in large numbers. With the new 2021 model coming in August 2021, Force plans on changing that. The Gurkha will directly compete with the new Mahindra Thar as these are the only 2 cars in this segment as of now. It will be priced at Rs.10-12 Lacs in India.
