The Case for Electric Mobility in India
A TFE Energy report on the case for electric mobility in India
India is the fifth largest car market in the world and has the potential to become one of the top three in the near future – with about 400 million customers in need of mobility solutions by the year 2030. That is one side of the coin. The other side is that the country needs a transportation revolution. The current trajectory of adding ever more cars running on expensive, imported fuel and cluttering already overcrowded cities suffering from infrastructure bottlenecks and intense air pollution is unfeasible. India’s cities will choke. A transportation revolution will have many components – better ‘walkability’, public transpor- tation, railways, roads – and better cars. Many of these ‘better cars’ will likely be electric.
