Why electric vehicles?
Moving people and goods is an integral part of the urban economy. With a growing population, rapid urbanisation, and an increase in e-commerce, urban freight demand is expected to increase by 140 percent this decade. Commercial passenger vehicle movement is also expected to increase 5X by 2050. Meeting India's growing transportation demand through conventional internal combustion engine vehicles will be expensive, polluting, and unhealthy. Zero-emission vehicles present an opportunity to meet this demand while reducing costs and improving air quality.
