Though we don’t encourage adding more cars on the road, it is people’s own will whether to buy a car or not based on the necessity. If you are planning on buying a car we would highly recommend you to buy an eV. Although Electric cars are more expensive, there are so many reasons why you should consider buying an electric car.
There are many upcoming electric cars coming in the next few years. The Government is also now planning to set up EV fast-charging stations at 22,000 out of 70,000 stations in the country. Our country is now shifting towards electric cars and we have some Indian-made electric cars and it can really be the future.

We understand that electric cars are expensive and not everyone can afford to buy one. And if you are not in a place to buy an environmentally friendly car then we would urge you to carpool. Carpooling daily can really help to prevent the emission of CO2 and reduce traffic congestion.
Carpooling is a sustainable and economical way to commute daily. And it gives you the comfort of a vehicle at the cost of a crowded bus.
