Top 5 EV Brands that are working towards sustainability

One of the biggest threats affecting the planet is global warming. Today, almost all countries are looking to combat the problem with an effective solution. The government, businesses, and many startups in the country are helping us deal with this subject. Start-ups in India, particularly, are playing a crucial role, as India boasts the third-largest number of startups globally.
