The buzzword at the Auto Expo 2018 is electric vehicles and auto manufacturers have put on their best cars on display. Be it Tata Motors, Renault, or the latest entrant Kia Motors — almost all brands are showcasing their electric vehicles. While some of these cars are concept cars and we aren't sure when they will actually be on Indian roads, there are a few cars which are expected to launch soon. Here's a look at some of the electric vehicles on display:

Tata Tiago EV
Tata Motors is going all guns blazing and is bullish about its electric cars. The Tiago is the small car from its stable and an electric variant of the car is on display. The electric vehicle is scheduled to be officially launched soon. The Tiago EV takes 360 minutes to charge in normal mode whereas 90 minutes in fast charging mode. On one full charge it runs for about 130 kms and has top speed of 100 kmph.

Hyundai hasn't officially announced its electric vehicle plans for India but the Ioniq Hybrid is the one it might launch. The Ioniq produces 43hp and 170nm of torque. It has a top speed of 185 kmph.

Renault Zoe EV
Renault's electric car variant is the Zoe which is currently on sale in Europe. The car produces 91bhp and 225nm of torque. It has a 41kw battery pack with a driving range of 403 km.

Honda Sports EV Concept
At every Auto Expo there's a car which attracts swarm of people for its audacious looks. This year, in all likelihood, it will be the Honda Sports EV concept. There's very little known about what's under the hood but it has a wacky design with LED headlights, a coupe like look and feel and square LED tail lights. Don't expect the car to be launched in India any time soon or perhaps never.
