With the popularity of electric vehicles rapidly increasing, the technology associated with them is also on the rise. The focus is shifting from conventional vehicles to electric cars due to sky-rocketing fuel prices. There are many advantages of owning an EV: they are eco-friendly, save fuel costs, get tax benefits, and are low maintenance. The only challenge is the scarcity of charging stations, which often causes ‘range anxiety’ in drivers. The good news is that some available apps come to the rescue. Let’s explore some of the best electric car apps for Indian drivers:
