With the recent discovery of Lithium reserves in India, the prices of the batteries will reduce significantly due to local manufacturing. As a result, the production will increase, and we should see sales improving as well as the infrastucture. With the bright future of EVs, we hope to see even more vehicles launch in the Indian market.
