Regarding refined products, manufacturers are moving toward producing cars offering long-range for the consumers. Considering the same, we have compiled a list of electric cars offering the longest range in the Indian market. These are the electric cars that will help you in ditching your range anxiety.

One of the largest manufacturers in India has launched its first EV for the market. In India, the EV6 is available in special GT Line trims and has cutting-edge innovations such as the multi-charging system, the world’s first charging system that works with both 400V and 800V chargers without the use of a separate controller. Using a 350KWh charger, the 800 V charger can charge the vehicle from 10% to 80% in as little as 18 minutes.
