Development Of Electric Vehicles In India.

Today I am going to talk about the development of Electric Vehicles in India and the main factor which would result for its more and more usage. The prices of fuel in India is the highest. Especially the price of Petrol is going on increasing everyday. Before 2008, the prices of Petrol were around Rs 47 in India. It crossed the Rs 50 mark on May 24, 2008. After that the prices have never gone down but it only went on increasing.


The recent price hike in 2018 is of approx Rs 8 in almost all the parts of the country. This is the highest price hike till date. And with this price hike, the rates have reached to Rs 82/ per litre. This has resulted into very much increase in the expense rates for the people.

This is the main factor which would result into more development of Electric Cars and Bikes. People would have no other choice then to use electric vehicles just because that would help them to save some amount.

The concept of Electric Vehicles is not very much common and in action right now in India, but in near future it would have to be implemented everywhere. The government is trying to work on this project by thinking about the energy sources as one day or the other the fuel is going to get over. And by seeing its consumption now, it could be thought that it would not last very long.

The alternate transport left for now is bicycle which is man-power vehicle. Government is working for another alternative which is Electric Vehicles. . India unveiled “National Electric Mobility Mission Plan” (NEMMP) 2020 in 2013 to address the issues of National energy security, vehicular pollution and growth of domestic manufacturing capabilities. The Government has planned to make a major shifting to electric vehicles by 2030.  E-commerce companies, Indian car manufacturers like Reva Electric Car Company (RECC), and Indian app-based transportation network companies like Ola are working on making electric cars more common over the next two decades.

Now, here are some of the electric vehicles which have been manufactured in India.

Currently the biggest company all over the world for the manufacturing of Electric Vehicles is Tesla. The owner of Tesla Motors is Elon Musk. The latest car model of Tesla is Tesla Model 3.


The Government started Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric vehicles (FAME) scheme which provides incentives for purchasing electric vehicles.

The vehicle is covered under Government of India’s FAME (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles) scheme that offers incentives to the electric and hybrid vehicles ranging from Rs.1,800 to Rs.29,000 for scooters and motorcycles and Rs.1.38 Lac for cars. FAME is a part of National Electric Mobility Mission Plan by Government of India.

These initiatives will help to get the electric vehicles in market a bit faster and that would result into less usage of fuel. If this price rise in Petrol continues then the time is not so far for wide usage of electric vehicles. But still, time will show us whether it would be a boon or a bane.
