Toyota has no immediate plans for electric cars in India

Toyota has no immediate plans for electric cars in India

Major car manufacturers in the country have been working on electric vehicle development for quite a while now. However, the popular Japanese car manufacturer Toyota has revealed to media that the company has no immediate plans to introduce electric vehicles in India. The company will rather wait for the development of charging infrastructure in the country. The government had recently announced its plans to go all electric by 2030. Although manufacturers are working on developing one, the Indian auto-industry has given out mixed reactions to electrification.    

In recent times, the major players like Mahindra and Ford Motor Company have entered into partnership for three years with strong focus on electric car development for India. The country’s largest car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki is setting up its Lithium Ion battery manufacturing facility in India at a cost of Rs 1,200 crores. OEM suppliers like Denso and Toshiba will be assisting the company in making components for its electric car project. Moreover, engine-maker Cummins India is researching on electric mobility solutions for India, while Hyundai Motors has already started coordinating with its suppliers for electric car components.

Toyota does sell electric vehicles in the international market and has all the technological know-how. Hence, it is not too difficult for the Japanese car manufacturer to introduce electric cars in India once the charging infrastructure is well developed in the country.
