What's The Future of Electric Vehicles In India?

The electric vehicle is a revolution and gaining popularity across the world in last few years.  The future of electric vehicles in India is very bright. The market size of the automotive industry in the country is very big and it is one of the key sectors driving economic growth of Indian market. In the financial year 2017, close to 25 million vehicles including passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, three wheeler and two-wheeler were manufactured that was the increase of approximately 5.5% from the previous financial year. However, these vehicles are one of the prime contributors of greenhouse gasses, which keep the country’s environment covered in pollution for several months every year. According to WHO report, 14 Indian cities are among the world 20’s most polluted cities. India’s capital is one of them.

To address the pollution problem of the world, the electric vehicle is the only option for the future and these vehicles replace the petrol and diesel vehicles running on the Indian roads. The Government of India is fully dedicated to make our country a 100% electric vehicle nation by 2030The Indian government has its commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions under the global agreement on climate change and to reduce spending on oil imports as well.


The Future of Electric Vehicles In India

In 2015, Indian government had launched one scheme known as Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric vehicles (FAME) to promote electric vehicles in the Indian market. The main objectives of this scheme are as follows.
•  Incentivize for all vehicles segments i.e. two, three or 4 wheeler etc.
•  Provide monetary benefits for adoption and market creation of both hybrid and electric vehicles in the country.

 

What are the companies focusing on electric vehicles projects in India?

The infrastructure of electric vehicle mainly depends upon 3 products i.e. vehicles, batteries and charging stations. There are several companies like Mahindra, Tata, Ashok Leyland, Hero MotoCorp, OK Play India Ltd, Goldstone Infratech, and JBM Auto etc has started to manufacture electric vehicles in the country. Exide Industries and Amara Raja are the two major companies in the production of lithium-ion batteries. Indian oil, NTPC and Tata power is making charging stations across the country.
