Does e-Mobility Still has a Long Way to Become the First Choice in India?

When the global automotive industry is in search of some sustainable and economic mobility choices to address the rising global warming situation, e-mobility is the future, no doubt. But, its adoption by the masses all over the world including in India is dependent on the choices made by policy-makers related to their strict implementation on the ground.

Many around the world and in India still doubt the future of e-mobility and raise their concerns on different platforms but various strategic proposals for its efficient implementation are also discussed by experts time and again. E- mobility is one of the best contemporary choices to be promoted by the government to achieve a zero-emission mobility solution and make a path for a carbon-neutral future for the upcoming generations.

Indian government’s target to achieve 30% e-mobility adaption seems difficult to achieve but the bold decision-making and systematic roll-out of broad guidelines for the stakeholders will give power to the Indian automotive industry and will make the way forward. Going with the set target it is expected that the combustion engines in India are going to take a back seat in the next decade and clean energy will be the future choice for the commutation needs.

This brings joy to all the stakeholders and consumers who are in love to witness a revolutionary decade in terms of mobility ahead. But, to make it a convenient choice for the masses, the government needs to find the answers to major challenges e-mobility brings with itself like lack of charging infrastructure, dependency on the import of batteries, higher prices, lack of maintenance and repair facilities, irregular electricity supply across the country, etc.

The issues need to be addressed in the course of this journey. Indian government with the schemes like Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (FAME) to generate demands for e-mobility and the e-Amrit portal to spread the awareness among the consumers are good initiatives. Thus, the presence of electric vehicles with green number plates on Indian roads shows that the journey to adapt the e-mobility in India is taking shape and people are ready to welcome a sustainable future with open arms.
