Electric vehicles are all the rage right now, and with good reason. So we decided to find out where this technology stands currently in the Indian context. The only way to do this was to put these three luxury EV SUV through their paces in conditions that suit them the least, in the sub-zero weather and high altitudes of the Himalayas. We drove the Audi e-tron, Mercedes EQC and Jaguar I-Pace up some steep mountain roads, faced the nascent charging infrastructure, and then witness some of the coldest weather anyone will find themselves in India. Only to know if electric vehicles can be as easy to roadtrip in as ICEs, and the kind of issues you can expect.
The visuals are stunning but our insights have been equally interesting. Enough for a great watch!
