Thoughts About The New Ziptron EV Technology

Manufacturers keep developing new tech to make electric vehicles better, faster, and more performance-oriented. While we are thrilled that Tata Motors is developing new technology, what we need is for manufacturers to retail electric vehicles at cheaper, more customer-friendly prices. Why would someone pay 15 lakh for a base variant of the Nexon EV when he/ she could buy a top-of-the-line Nexon variant (conventional engine) for 11.10 lakh*?

*Prices mentioned are ex-showroom, India.
