India’s most affordable car is here, courtesy – a Mumbai based startup by the name of PMV. The new electric vehicle under the limelight is called PMV EaS-E and as the company likes to highlight it, the EaS-E comes as a “fully electric smart car for everyday use.” That is also where it gets its name from – Personal Mobility Vehicle (PMV) EaS-E or “Easy.” Mind you, the PMV EaS-E does not come as your regular car either. It leaves a conventional form of a car far behind and takes a more innovative approach to electric mobility meant for your everyday transit.

This is what brings both the price and the size of the car down to probably the smallest that you have seen in the country to date. In numbers, the PMV EaS-E has been launched at a starting price of Rs 4.79 lakh (ex-showroom). With that, it takes the tag of the most affordable electric car on sale in India. Note that this is an introductory price and will be applicable to only the first 10,000 bookings in the country. PMV says that it has already received about 6,000 pre-orders for the car from around the world.

In case you find the electric car interesting and are thinking about securing one for yourself, make sure to first take a look at everything it has on offer at its attractive price point. So, here we go.
