That being said, the electric passenger car segment is still limited by the lack of options and it is currently dominated by Tata Motors with almost 75 per cent market share.

Now, BYD (Build Your Dreams) is gearing up to launch the BYD Atto 3 electric SUV on October 11. This new electric SUV will rival the likes of MG ZS EV, Hyundai Kona and may even rival the likes of the upcoming Mahindra XUV400.
