One of the main reasons behind buyers not going for an electric car is the high ownership cost. For buyers of EVs, the total cost of ownership (TCO), which includes the cost for acquisition, running, and maintenance, is the most important factor determining the viability of the vehicle, according to a white paper on electric mobility released by strategy consultant firm Kearney.

That cost, a cost analysis done by Kearney reveals, is higher for EVs than their conventional-fuel counterparts. "At current petrol prices, the TCO for

electric cars is costlier than for petrol cars with the daily running of less than 40 to 45 kilometers. At distances beyond this threshold, electric cars offer a favorable TCO proposition. Most people in Indian cities travel about 35 to 40 kms a day between their homes and workplaces, which limits the savings from the lower running costs of EVs. CNBCTV18

    • KIA Seltos scored 3 Stars in NCAP
      KIA Seltos scored 3 stars in global crash test.


      The protection offered to the driver and passenger head was adequate, both passenger and driver head bottomed out the airbags. Both adult passenger’s neck protection was good. Driver chest showed marginal protection, while passenger chest protection was good. Driver and passenger knees showed marginal protection as they could impact with dangerous structures behind the dashboard supported by the Tranfascia tube. Driver tibias showed weak and adequate protection while passenger’s tibias showed good and adequate protection. The bodyshell was rated as unstable and it was not capable of withstanding further loadings. Footwell area was rated as unstable. The car offers standard SBR for driver and passenger. All of the above explained the three stars for adult occupant protection.
      The child seat for the 3 year old was installed FWF with the adult belt and was not able to prevent excessive forward movement during the impact while it offered poor protection to the head as it contacted with the interior of the car and good protection to the chest. The 18 month old CRs was installed with adult belt rearward facing. The head showed good protection and the chest was protected. The CRSs did not show incompatibility. The manufacturer refused to recommend the CRSs. The vehicle does not offer 3 point belts in all seating positions and it does not offer ISOFIX anchorages. All of the above explained the two stars for child occupant protection.
