In recent times, the operating cost of internal combustion engines is unstable and, at times, rises at an alarming rate, and there are no signs of that coming down any time soon. Then, why would people not want to invest in EVs if that comes down to saving the expenses by more than 40 per cent?

The electric vehicle market in Nepal has changed drastically with all those observed from the streets. The market situation has improved with consumers warming up for electric vehicles. In the midst of doubt about whether EVs would be finely suited for the streets of Nepal, Tata Motors as a brand backed itself with extraordinary Tata EVs suitable for the Nepali roads.

The response Tata EVs have got from the consumers is quite something to recollect. But why?

Here are a few reasons why Tata EVs might be getting a market lead in Nepal. 

1. Largest charging Network 

Running out of charge is one of the sole reasons why Nepali consumers hesitate in switching to EVs. But with 19 units of the largest DC super-fast chargers (30kW) at every 100-150 KMs connecting all the major cities across Nepal and over 150 units of the largest AC charging network (3.2kW) installed there, Tata Motors has covered its customers if they ever worry to travel freely.

3. Trusted and proven with the EVs sold in Nepal
