Evolution of India's EV Landscape | Panel Discussion

With the global race amongst nations to become carbon neutral and minimise impact on the environment, the automotive industry is a key pillar of executing this transformation with its zero-tailpipe-emission BEV technology which has emerged as a promising alternative to vehicles powered by conventional fuels like petrol and diesel. 

While EV sales are currently pegged at less than 2 percent of the total passenger vehicle volumes in the country, the rapid development in EV charging infrastructure, advancement in products, as well as increasing customer confidence in the technology is set to drive the adoption towards a 30 percent penetration level by the end of the decade.

Autocar Professional, in partnership with the Tamil Nadu Government, hosted the India EV Conclave in Chennai on November 21, where industry experts in a panel discussion debated about the challenges, opportunities, and the way forward.
