Price of Best Electric Cars in Nepal in 2023/2024:

Introduction:

The craze for Electric Cars in Nepal in 2023/2024 is increasing rapidly. Due to the incentive provided by the Nepalese Government to purchase new electric vehicles compared to gasoline vehicles, the number of EV users is multiplying in Nepal. The Environment-Friendly Vehicle and Transport Policy 2014 targets to provide subsidies to promote electric vehicles in Nepal.

The two main reasons to give the subsidy for EV cars in Nepal in 2023/2024 are first to increase the consumption of electricity and reduce the use of gasoline vehicles, as Nepal has a vast potential for hydroelectricity. The second is to move towards a zero carbon emissions policy, as the Government has aimed to have electric vehicles in about 90% of all private and 60% of all public automobiles, including two-wheeler vehicles, by 2030.

Tax Rates on Electric Vehicles in Nepal As per the New Budget Policy of 2080/2081:

Motor Capacity Custom Duty(%) Excise Duty(%)
Up to 50 KW 10 0
50KW – 100 KW 15 10
100KW – 200KW 20 20
200 KW – 300 KW 40 45
Above 300 KW 60-80 60

 

As a result, e-car companies are targeting the Nepalese market and launching new models of electric cars. Some new and old models of electric vehicles will also have tough competition in the year 2024. This article will enlist all the Electric Cars Available in the Nepalese Market in 2023/2024.
