India’s focus on next-gen mobility has definitely taken on legs under the current government, but the ‘National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) 2020’ was actually unveiled in 2013 under the previous Congress-led government. That puts into perspective the concerted efforts across the aisle for green mobility and electric cars. Since then the country has been willing to adopt a 360-degree approach in order to turn into an EV nation.

In December 2019, in the Climate Risk Index 2020 released by the environment think tank, Germanwatch, India’s rank has worsened from the 14th spot in 2017 to 5th in 2018 in the global vulnerability ladder. This makes it all the more reason for India to make electric cars and vehicles a priority in the fight against the reliance on fossil fuels.

While the initial push was seen towards making two-wheelers and three-wheelers electric, the bigger need is for electric public transportation and cars. Despite the existing challenges and ambiguity inherent in the sector, major auto manufacturers are now looking at this widely untapped sector with hope.

So What Is An Electric Car?
For the uninitiated, an electric car is just a car propelled by one or more electric motors using energy stored in rechargeable batteries, instead of burning petrol or diesel internally and exhausting fumes. There are broadly three kinds of electric cars at present:

Solar-powered electric cars and vehicles
Hybrid electric cars powered by a mix of internal combustion and batteries
Electric cars with on-board battery packs also known as battery electric vehicle (BEV)
More often than not, electric cars in the context of mobility and environmental conservation refer to battery electric vehicles, but may also refer to plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV)

In the Indian context, automobile manufacturers have announced electric four-wheelers such as Hyundai Kona Electric, Mahindra e-Verito, Mahindra e2o, Porsche Taycan, Tata Tigor EV 2019, MG ZS. But many more will be needed if India is to take meaningful steps towards becoming an EV-first nation.

With enthusiasm rising around the chances of Elon Musk’s Tesla launching in India in 2020, many local and global auto manufacturers have started testing the waters in the Indian market for electric cars.

Will Electric Cars Gain Popularity In India?
In the last few years, trends suggest a rise in interest among the common masses for electric cars in comparison to electric two-wheelers and ICE or petrol/diesel cars, as seen on Google Trends.

Industry leaders consider electric cars to be a promising option for Indian audience for many reasons.

Akhil Aryan, CEO and cofounder ION Energy believes that timely adoption coupled with the electrification of the existing vehicles and growth of charging infrastructure will create a shift, the impact of which will be felt in metropolitan cities especially given that pollution has reached catastrophic levels.

Further, Zoomcar founder Greg Moran added that with the median age of Indians being 27 years, the younger generation is driven for innovation, sustainability and environmental conservation. At the same time, by manufacturing vehicles, components and batteries together, various established conglomerates and startups are ensuring indigenous availability of products.

The primary purpose behind electric vehicles not being well known is the accessibility of less expensive other options. For example take the instance of e-bicycles, Electrotherm India Limited which delivers the mainstream yo-bicycles had detailed incomes of 200 million in July-Sept in 2011 and announced 54% expansion in deals. Individuals possibly go for these other options in the event that they are certain that they can recoup the additional sum they are paying or get the best arrangement accessible against all other options. Along these lines, I would preclude the chance of Indian customers being one-sided.

At the present time because of the significant expense of li-particle batteries the vehicles are costly for a working class customer with a lot less expensive choices accessible. Indeed, even the administration of Delhi attempted to help the reason by postponing practically 30% on all BEV(Battery Electric Vehicles) yet the reaction has still been tepid, and shopper numbness for a feasible domain isn't the only one to be accused here. It will require some investment for the hole between ICE motors and electric engine vehicles is lessening consistently and ppl will before long be tolerating the last wholeheartedly.

I might want to specify that Mahindra is assuming a vital job in India with a group previously contending in the Formula Electric and immense interests in electric vehicle inquire about and supportable vitality.
