All About electric cars

As we become more environmentally conscious, eco-friendly vehicles have emerged as an attractive alternative to regular fuel vehicles. These not only let users enjoy high fuel efficiency but also allow them to leave a smaller carbon footprint. Global electric vehicle sales figures for Quarter 1 2016 highlight that plug-in sales in 2016 totaled to 180,500 units till date. This is approximately an increase of 42% as compared to the same period of time in 2015.

Advantages of Electric Vehicles

  • Reducing Carbon Footprint

    The environmental impact of an electric car is zero which means you're reducing your carbon footprint
  • Cost Saving

    Being green, efficient and clean does not mean that the 'mileage' of Evs is compromised.
  • Clean Environment

    Electric cars put curb on noise pollution. Electric vehicles do not have a tail pipe, they give off no emissions.

With the advent of smartphones and unlimited connectivity across the globe, nomophobia has become commonplace. The fear of running out of charge is something that the anxious millennials are growing up with. But is it justified? The answer would be yes only if you were driving the yesteryear electric cars. Though the technology used then was the latest, it seems primordial now. Because, you will know exactly how far you can go with whatever juice you have left in your EV.

Indian Government finally embarks on electrification push
Indian Government finally embarks on electrification push

The electric future is a global phenomenon and it is realising faster than ever. Major carmakers around the world are gearing up towards the new powertrain for sustenance before the exhaustion of fossil fuels. While the developed countries are adapting faster and applying various regulations to ensure their streets are emission free in coming years, the Indian Government so far has been discerningly quiet on the electrification push. But now, it seems that the trends are shifting.

As per the latest announcement by the NITI Aayog, the government plans to initiate the electrification push with a completely different kind of approach unlike the developed countries. Instead of relying on heavy subsidies for the electric vehicles, the plan is to sell the car without battery (thus bringing down the cost by up to 70 per cent since it constitutes the major cost of an EV) and lease out the battery pack separately. The scheme, which should kick off by 2020, would initially involve public transport and then slowly move towards private passenger cars. The battery can be leased at the stations and replenished for another when one pack is consumed. The government would control the industry for a couple of years initially until it stabilises.

This unique plan is still in the early stages of drafting and will be penned down soon. The government intends to replace all the vehicles on Indian roads with no-emission electric vehicles by the year 2030. The taxis, two-wheelers, three-wheelers and non-air-conditioned city buses would have specific filling stations with quick replacement and charging facilities for city commute. The specifications, rules, plans, infrastructure and other minute details of the plans are being worked out. A formal policy is expected to roll out in about six months.

Pioneers of the Indian EV industry, Mahindra Electric are at the forefront with new investments in EV technology and ever expanding EV portfolio. Other Indian car makers are expected to join the movement sooner than later helping the much-needed transition to electric mobility.
