Section 80EEB with Example
Let us take an example of how much interest you can save on electric vehicle loan. In this example we will consider car loan for calculation purpose:
EV Loan Amount = Rs. 5 Lakh
Interest Rate = 12%
Tenure = 36 months
Below is the screenshot of calculations:
As seen above, you pay interest amount of Rs. 52,078 in the first 12 months of your car loan. If these mounts are same as financial year (April to March), then you can claim it under Section 80EEB and need not have to pay tax on it based on your income.

So buying Electric vehicle helps us not only to control air pollution but also to save income tax under Section 80EEB using the EV loans. Maximum limit that can be claimed in a financial year is Rs. 1.5 lakh.
Currently, only those loans are eligible for deductions which were sanctioned during the period of 1st April 2019 to 31st March 2023. May be in future we can see the extension of this period so that more people can buy electric vehicles, considering that Government of India wants to promote the green initiatives!
