Electric vehicles: transformation of the Indian mobility market

Electric vehicles (EVs) are more expensive to buy today but their cost of running is significantly lower than a standard petrol or diesel vehicle. For fleet vehicles running more than 150 kms a day, it is already economically

viable to switch to electric. By 2024, electric vehicles are expected to reach upfront price parity with most petrol / diesel vehicles while still being much cheaper to run. This is expected to bring to a transformation in Indian mobility market. Indian policies and its vehicle manufacturing ecosystem need to adapt quickly for this transformation.

This transformation will also present significant opportunities.
