Electric Car Price in Nepal
The market for electric vehicles in Nepal is growing. Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular, says Rajan Babu Shrestha, chairman of the Electric Vehicles Committee. Rajan Babu is the Vice President of the Nada Automobiles Association of Nepal.
He claims that people are genuinely interested in electric cars until recently. For instance, how will mileage be calculated, how will the electric vehicle perform in the rain, and whether or not it will cause problems when climbing hills are all valid concerns. Educating the public on the concept and advantages of electric vehicles has become increasingly important in recent years.
According to Rajan Babu, Chairman of the Electric Vehicle Group in Nepal, there are currently nine brands of four-wheelers and about two dozen brands of two-wheelers supplying the electric vehicle market in Nepal.
But there are also companies that import vehicles without registration.
Dhruv Bahadur Thapa, president of the Nepal Automobile Dealers Association, adds that there has been a rise in interest in EVs in the country. He stated that 10% of all imported vehicles are electric vehicles. In the next five years, he predicts a doubling of this rate of expansion.
Both the electric Nexon and the electric Tigor produced by Tata Motors sell well in the Nepali market. Four-wheeled electric vehicles are being introduced by manufacturers including Hyundai, BYD, Neta, MG, Kia, Tesla, Changan, and Trio.
There are many different manufacturers and models of electric four-wheelers available, but here are some of the most common and well-liked ones:

Nada EV Expo 2022
From October 6th to 9th, 2022, NADA will host “Nada EV Expo 2022” to promote sales of electric vehicles in Nepali market.
There will be 51 booths at the expo, featuring everything from electric motorcycles to electric scooters. The Kathmandu fairgrounds known as Bhrikutimandap will play host to the expo. Customers can learn all they need to know about different electrical manufacturers and their products at the expo.
Since the middle of May of last year, the government has banned the import of jeeps, cars, and vans, causing a shortage of vehicles and new models in the marketplace. Therefore, popular brands in the market such as MG and Kia have decided not to exhibit at the Expo, according to Dhruv Bahadur, president of NADA.
The National Automobile Dealers Association thinks that EV Expo will help people learn more about and make better decisions regarding electric vehicles.
