A developing country like India is facing increasing challenges to make urban transportation sustainable and to manage the continuously growing air pollution. As in India, most people using the conventional vehicle, it is better to use an electric vehicle for saving our environment. Based on data publicly available from the official Web site of several well-known manufacturers, this paper aims at presenting a statistical analysis of standard specification and finding the critical parameter that will influence the customer to switch to EV. For detecting the critical parameter while purchasing an e-motorbike/e-scooter, a small survey was conducted. It will help the designer while designing an electric vehicle to improve critical parameters and make electric vehicle more practical to market.
