Tata Motors launched a $10,000 electric car to further its lead.

Tata Motors launched India's lowest-priced electric car, which costs just over $10,000.

The carmaker is hoping to draw in more buyers as India moves toward becoming an electric vehicle superpower.

Tata leads India's electric vehicle market, helped by government subsidies and high tariffs on imported vehicles.

Tata's Tiago EV, an electric version of its popular Tiago hatchback, will have a starting price of 849,000 rupees.

The majority of cars sold in India, the fourth-largest car market, are priced below $15,000.

The cheapest electric car available in the United States is the Tata Tigor compact sedan, which starts at around $14,940.

China has a variety of electric vehicles starting at around $4,525.

The Tiago EV is expected to have an operating cost that is about a seventh of the gasoline version.

Making it a "compelling proposition" for drivers. Our objective is not to have the lowest prices.

But to pack in advanced connected car features and other technologies while keeping the price accessible.
