Depreciation of air quality, climate change and incremental rise in global temperature are some alarming concerns which demand a transition to electrically powered and emission-free vehicles. To develop an ecosystem for EVs, the Indian government has already implemented policies and subsidies to encourage automobile brands to manufacture EVs locally. The mission is to have 30% of all passenger vehicles in India “electrified” by 2030.
E-Mobility India Forum powered by NGV India Summit, is gearing up for its second edition on 29 – 30 September 2022 at Le Meridien, New Delhi.
