Why does the price of electric vehicles differ in different states? The straight and simple answer is the subsidy given by the states for electric vehicles. Actually, recently the central government had made changes in its FAME-II policy, under which discounts are given on the price of electric two-wheelers and electric four-wheelers. This exemption is the same on all electric vehicles, but in recent times, several state governments have announced their own separate subsidy for electric vehicles. In some states, there is less subsidy on electric vehicles, while some states openly announced subsidies. These different subsidies offered by the state governments also make a difference in the effective cost of the vehicles.
