The Times of India is reporting that India plans to go to 100 percent electric vehicles by 2030. According to the Power Minister Piyush Goyal, “We are going to introduce electric vehicles in a very big way. We are going to make electric vehicles self- sufficient like UJALA. The idea is that by 2030, not a single petrol or diesel car should be sold in the country,”
The leading think tank in India, NITI Aayog has released a report detailing the path to full electric car implementation over a 15 year period. The report recommends the subsidizing of electric vehicles, and the limitation of registration for petroleum and diesel cars. The report features other recommendations, including the reduction of interest rates and tariffs for electric taxis, and the deployment of electric charging stations. The report recommends test sites, referred to as “lighthouse regions” before full spectrum implementation.
