The research will be focusing on the consumer demand for electronic vehicles by looking at the
impact of consumer innovation and concerns on the functional capabilities of electronic vehicles over
their preferences. A conceptual framework is devised and implemented that comprises measures of
innovativeness at an adoption level, based on an assessment of technology ownership and a cohort of
psychological and social factors. With the ongoing depletion of fossil fuel and price hikes, an
alternative to power vehicles is required. Electric vehicles are being introduced by India's automobile
industry as a solution to the industry and environment. Despite the government enacting electronic
vehicle policies, the current market penetration of electronic vehicles is very low. Consumer buying
behaviour along with their perceptions towards electric vehicles in India will be examined in this
paper. The research will be based on primary and secondary data. The data will be collected by a
questionnaire and a small market survey. The target for the data collection will be two-wheeler OEM
dealers, students, working employees. The target end consumer will be from tier 1 and tier 2 cities.
