This is how India can grow with electric vehicles!


  1. EV Scenario in India
  2. EV encouraging policies by state governments
  3. Upward graph of the EV sales in the country

With the ever-rising crisis of global warming caused due to CO2 emissions caused by fuel-driven vehicles, many countries are encouraging the switch towards a cleaner and greener mobility solution along with India. It is the era of the nation shifting towards electric vehicles and choosing clean mobility over contemporary vehicles.

With the ongoing transition in the EV industry, EVs amount to a little percentage of the total automobile sales in India. Although the encouraging policies by the Central and State Governments have rapidly surged the demand for electric vehicles. The updated FAME II Policy and the new EV policies by multiple states in India are more supportive of creating an EV ecosystem in India.

Although the waves of pandemic hit the world in unexpected amounts, it has also made people more health-conscious and thus more aware of sustainability. The research states that the post-pandemic choices of consumers have shown the patterns highly inclined more towards sustainability.  Also after the provision of proper infrastructure such as charging stations, 90% of car owners in India show a positive sign of buying an electric vehicle as their next vehicle.

Higher Mileage, and High Performing Electric Bikes

For the nation to be an EV hub, the EV manufacturers, battery manufacturers and EV supportive industries are coming up with some revolutionary plans and ideas. To reduce the mileage anxiety in the consumers, the established EV manufacturing brands like Wardwizard Innovations and Mobility Ltd. have launched e-bikes with advanced technology such as long-lasting batteries to offer a higher mileage per charge.

After all these developments in the field of EV, one of the biggest challenges for India having enough EV charging stations still remains a concern. The Greater availability and easier access to charging stations mean faster adoption of electric vehicles. According to the studies, by 2030 India would need 5 million (about 7 times the number of fuel stations) nationwide, resulting in about $6 billion Rs. of investment.

This is how States take up the EV development

Below listed are some brief takeaways from the Electric Vehicle policies outlined by the state governments in advancing the EV ecosystem in the country.

There has been a huge development in the expansion of charging infrastructure across the country. States such as Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Telangana are setting impressive targets for infrastructure rollout.
