The world is turning to alternative fuel sources, and electric vehicles (EVs) are leading the way. India is boosting EV adoption by expanding production facilities and incentive programmes. But why are EVs so crucial for India? Amidst growing climate change concerns and India's attempts to reach its commitments on the Paris Agreement -- what are the imminent challenges faced by the players? How has the landscape evolved over the past few years and what more can be done? Catch this insightful conversation with leading industry trendsetters and policymakers, only on Business Insider India.
We've seen the industry shape up and make a gradual shift toward a completely new model that prioritises a clean and green environment. We are witnessing significant momentum today, as consumer perceptions of EV viability as a primary vehicle have improved. Convergence in government-driven incentives and regulations has resulted in additional private investments into the entire electric vehicle value chain to achieve the scale required for cost reductions and technological advancement. The Indian consumer is becoming more aware of the benefits of gradually transitioning to green lifestyle solutions, with the Indian government acting as a catalyst to make the nation EV efficient by pushing policies and tax benefits in the market.
However, making India fully efficient is an ambiguous challenge for the government, including costs, accessibility, actual usage, lithium battery disposal and multiple concerns that are acting as a speed bump in this journey. So, when we talk about EV adoption in India – it is crucial to discuss every sphere, including climate change, carbon emission norms, EV leverage, and the challenges in the Indian market.
Business Insider's virtual event, "Shifting Gears: Evaluating the road to sustainability," takes place on September 9 at 7 pm and provides the platform to discuss, analyse this road to sustainability.
The panel will discuss the challenges and opportunities of EV adoption, as well as the government and Indian automobile companies' initiatives in gearing up the speed to bring the EVs era to India.
