Everyone thinks that EVs are green vehicles. But do you know that for charging the EVs, first, we need to burn fossil fuels and convert that thermal energy into electrical energy.
And that energy is used later on for charging EVs.

Some of you may say that there are renewable energy sources like solar. Still, you should also know that solar and other renewable energy sources are not yet sufficient enough. It's just a tiny factor in our total energy consumption.

So in one way or another, we are using fossil fuels.

But when we convert energy from one form to another, energy is always wasted.

So, in my opinion, India is somewhat ready for EVs. Still, we should also focus on increasing our renewable energy sources to power these EVs, so we do not need that much fossil fuel in the future.

Today's India is ready for anything with some ifs. Suppose all of us start using EV vehicles, Can we afford it?

Yes, Do we have the resources for it ?N0. Imagine waiting in line for hours just to charge your car and with the amount of population we have, it does not only imagine its prediction.

So, once when we are equipped with the required resources and Indian automaker's trust we will see certainly see EV Vehicles on our streets.

In my opinion, obviously India is ready for electric vehicles because in the present scenario lack amount of diesel, and petroleum it's not enough for the entire country. Otherwise it's causes the pollution and affected the natural resources. So, in my opinion, electrical vehicles have a lot of benefits.

For example, electricity can be option from solar energy, wind energy etc. It's environment friendly.

Among the world's 20 most polluted cities, India is in 13th position.

So, we have to use Electric Vehicles to change this.

Electric Vehicles are 100 per cent eco-friendly. They do not emit toxic gases or smoke into the environment which leads to global warming and helps to reduce pollution. It requires less maintenance than conventional vehicles as there are fewer fluids to change and fewer moving parts.

Friends let me put forward my opinion on the topic "Is India ready for Electric Vehicles"?

India is not yet fully ready for Electric vehicles because,

1. We do not have adequate charging stations in India.

2. Production of electric cars is less due to sales are not up to the mark due to the cost, travelling duration on charging, sufficient charging stations etc.

3. People are not so interested to buy due to safety factors as in the recent past, many electric vehicles caught fire.

Hence, if we strengthen the above points India will definitely be ready for electric vehicles.

India will be ready for electric vehicles or not depends on many factors:


So, it helps to reduce pollution emissions and at the global and political level, it helps reduce the dependence of fuel on other nations.

But I want to add one more thing to popularize electric vehicles among Indians we have to strengthen ourselves in electric power stations.

And we should do more research on how we improvised the electric battery so it covers more destinations with less battery usage.

And electric companies also work on the security and safety of an electric vehicle because it works as a hindrance after all people are disturbed when they hear the news that an electric vehicle got a fire.

So, if we work on this, India will be ready for an electric vehicle.

Electric vehicles are the most suitable alternative for vehicles running on fuel due to many reasons.

1) Petrol or diesel are natural resources and they are decreasing day by day and one day it will be finished completely so the need of the time is that we should shift towards others alternative to it like electric Vehicles.

2) The cost of petrol or diesel price also increasing day by day especially in India it is very high and if we talk about electric vehicles then they cost very low in comparison to diesel or petrol.

3) Also, fuel running vehicles create a lot of pollution and because of that we are getting so many diseases and if we look at the condition of our capital city Delhi then it is very difficult for us to breathe in the fresh air. So here the simple way is that we should now shift towards the electric vehicle as they are eco-friendly and do not create pollution.

4) Electric vehicle also saves us from noise pollution because they have very little sound in comparison to fuel running Vehicles.

5) Government has to pay so much taxes for purchasing crude oil from other countries that can also be reduced if we use electric vehicles.

Talking about the need of electic vehicle in India, yes India do require electric vehicle but if we talk about whether India is ready or not. I would like to show the other side of the coin still the major problem which India is facing is electric vehicle required charging and still there are not many such charging stations are avaible. Also, electric vehicle are not having powerful engine as compared to diesel and petrol vehicle and as we all know that India is a land of diversity, bu the term diversity I need to say about its geography as there are hills and mountains where these electric vehicles will not be able to create a good impact. Also, most Indians do prefer diesel and petrol cars as they are not much aware of electric vehicles and the other reasons is still many household don't have charging facility for electric cars and electric stations will charge some money for charging. Here, I would like to draw your attention towards a major problem as a person if I charging the vehicle then it will require sometime but for some person time is still a important factor while on the other hand petrol and diesel cars do require money but at the same time they don't require time as compare to electric vehicles. Talking about pollution now eco friendly fuels are been developed that emit less harmful gases as compare to other fuel.

Undoubtedly, India needs an electric vehicle. Today's scenario in Delhi is the best example. Onside India is Trying to recover from 2nd wave of COVID. The other side is air pollution in Delhi. Due to carbon emission in fossil fuels, the area is polluted leads to a lot of acute and chronic diseases. So the central govt made a special rule to undergo lockdown for 20 days. This made people mentally I'll. The other side compulsory use of green vehicles in Delhi to reduce pollution. Yes, India is needed for e-vehicle. Already, Two-wheelers and rickshaws are started manufactured. The reduction of carbon emission by the use of vehicles can be one best solution. Also, the cost of vehicles can be minimized so that middle-class people can afford it. There is noise generation. It can run smoothly. We conclude that e-vehicle is needed for the next coming young generation to prevent the resources from pollution and green earning.

Hi friends! Coming to the topic, India is ready for electric vehicles we can say yes! Because of the today competitive world most of people moving from one place to another place for their need of survival, so they choose different types of vehicles to move. Whether they may have their own vehicles or public transportation. Almost all vehicles are run with oil like petrol, diesel. Etc. Due to the increasing usage of oil, there is a drastic change in the climate. Due to this, the ozone layer is depleting. By using electric vehicles we can control pollution.

Of course, some of the problems due to battery arises but we can make sure to avoid the problems by taking some measures. Some of the researchers going on that and it can be implemented.

I didn't think that India is ready for electric vehicles as there is a lot of traffic in India so it's difficult to provide the electric vehicle facilities and as well as the cost of electric vehicles is also high as it runs on electricity it is rather costly than petrol, diesel because you not only drive the vehicle with electricity but you may use other vehicle facilities too or else if you go a long drive then it will cost you so much in your bill that comes from the electric car, so until any good scheme with less money on this electric vehicle will launch we must use the regular petrol, diesel-run vehicles only.

Smriti said: (Mar 22, 2021)  
To know whether India is ready for electric cars or not people should first know what is electric vehicles. Electric vehicles, unlike conventional petrol and diesel vehicles, use one or more electric motors for propulsion. Electric vehicles have a battery that is charged through an electricity supply. The electric energy is then stored and used to power the electric motor.

According to a report by NITI Aayog,

India can save 64% of anticipated passenger road-based mobility-related energy demand and 37% of carbon emissions in 2030 by pursuing a shared, electric, and connected mobility future.

This would result in a reduction of 156 mega toes in diesel and petrol consumption for that year. At USD 52/bbl of crude, this would imply a net savings of roughly Rs 3.9 lakh crore (approximately 60 billion USD) in 2030. These figures clearly indicate an urgent requirement for the replacement of conventional vehicles with electric vehicles.

While prominent manufacturers such as Maruti Suzuki India, Hero Electric Vehicles, Mahindra and Mahindra are already registered electric manufacturers in India, latest collaborations such as Suzuki and Toyota, are planning to launch electric vehicles in India.

On the same lines, India's first EV manufacturer Mahindra and Mahindra has forged a partnership with Ford to develop electric mobility solutions that are affordable for Indian consumers.

Among the world's 20 most polluted cities in the world, 13 are in India. Vehicular pollution is one of the major contributors to air pollution. India is in a group of countries that has the highest particulate matter (PM) levels. Its cities have the highest levels of PM10 and PM2. 5 (particles with a diameter of 10 microns and 2.5 microns). These figures are six times more than the WHO "safe' limit of 25 micrograms and represent the exigency for Electrical Vehicles.

Electric vehicles are not only Environment Friendly but also Cost Effective as Government is incentivizing the use of Electric Vehicles by providing subsidies and lower motor taxes on EVs. Electric Vehicles are 100 per cent eco-friendly. They do not emit toxic gases or smoke in the environment which leads to global warming and helps to reduce pollution. As electricity is majorly produced from either renewable sources or from sources that emit no greenhouse gases thus EVs help in maintaining energy security by shifting dependence from non-renewable resources to renewable resources. Electric vehicles require less maintenance than conventional vehicles as there are fewer fluids (like oil and transmission fluid) to change and fewer moving parts. Electric vehicles are quieter to operate than gasoline-powered vehicles, leading to a reduction in noise pollution.

So, the answers is YES, India is ready for electric vehicles.

Pratip Banerjee said: (Mar 12, 2021)  
Good evening everyone. Today's topic is one of the most crucial topics of this time period. So, first of all in India is one of the most largely populated countries after china and in India, most people don't have a private car that's why a large number of people used to travel by public transport. Public transport usually consumes diesel and sometimes petrol so there is a large amount of air pollution takes place which was harmful to our health and as well as the environment. Apart from that cost of diesel and Petrols increasing day by day so this is a golden time to shift from fossil fuel consumed car to electric vehicle, it is the one and only option to save our Indian sub-continent as well as the world.

So when we apply this idea there were some challenges, like-.

1. Charging infrastructure: A report of the Indian govt says in India there is approximately 70000 pump in Otherside approx 2900 EV charging station are there.
2. Higher cost-In EV every part is valuable and the cost is higher if we compared with fossil fuel vehicle.
3. Lack of technology.
4. Large dependency on other countries. (especially in china).
5. Lack of skilled worker.
6. Possible disruption in the automobile sector.

Govt of India takes a lot of initiative.

Our focus areas-.

1. Create a charging infrastructure.
2.R&D in battery technology (shift from li ions).
3. EV education.

If we create those things and govt encouraged people to buy EV so there is a good future of EV in India because in the current scenario India is one of the most convertible markets in the world.

Hello everyone,

Yes, India is ready for electric vehcile use. Government is promoting the use of electric vehicles in India by giving subsidy and lower tax. It gives guideline to company to produce electric vehicles in India by giving some rebate. Telsa is planning to launch electrical vehicle in India by 2022. It is one of the best intitiative of government to make pollution free environment. Electrical vehical is also cost effective less maintainence requirement. Already in India e rickshaw is surpassing the diesel/petrol auto and most of the buses in metro cities are using electrical vchicles and electrification of training is also taking place in India. So, yes India is taking step towards electrification of vehicles.

Hello everyone,

Today we are discussing India ready for Electric Vehicles.

Firstly, India is ready for the electric vehicles. Many of car is launched in India.

As there is no infrastructure (charging centre, EV vehicle maintenance centre etc) in India for EVs it is one of major reason. EVs are not considered good for long distances as they require charging of 5to 6hours after every 200 km drive.

The EV car is moving on road.

Lastly, I want to said that India is ready EV. So in future many of Electric vehicles is developed that.

Hello, all of you.

My name is Ratan Lal Gadhwal.

First of all, I would like to pay attention to the topic of Electric vehicles in India.

To think about EVs is good for India.

India is the second-largest population country in the world so they need of vehicles is very high.

There is a very huge problem to pollution in India so EVs are helping us to reduce air pollution, noise pollution around our environment.

In June 2019 the gov. Of India announced that only EVs will be sold in India from the year 2030.

By using EVs, we can reduce the dependence on other countries for oil import.

But electric vehicle's Price is very high. It is not affordable for many people in India.

And also required a number of charging stations in the near future. So it a big problem for India to build them within some time.

Thanks to all of you.

India is currently in the 13th position among the world's most polluted cities. Switching to electric vehicles is a step towards green economy. Considering the present situation, it may seem vital but there's still a lot to be done before India gets ready for Electric Vehicles. Firstly, India doesn't have proper infrastructure to facilitate running of electric vehicles. There are very few charging points in India. Secondly, people should be educated about road safety concerning electric vehicles. Lastly, the price of electric vehicles should be lowered as they are not affordable to a common man. All of this will certainly happen in future as Government of India has already started working on it.

Yo Amit said: (Feb 21, 2020)  
In my opinion, India is partially ready for Electric Vehicles. It will take a good amount of 5 to 10 years from now. As the majority of the people in India depends on vehicle run by either petrol or diesel, the transportation economy depends on the use of these vehicles. If we suddenly put pressure on EVs the automobile sector will be adversely affected as we have seen in the recent July 2019 budget where more encouragement was given to the use of EVs by reducing the prices and increasing the price of vehicles run by petrol or diesel. The GDP saw a drastic fall in the automobile sector. This resulted in people losing their jobs, their livelihood, people bought fewer goods which affected the profit of companies, resulting in less wage and lower job creation which again reduced the GDP by a higher rate.

Before getting ready for using EVs we must first change our old system of transportation in a slower but steady pace, drastic change may sometimes backfire. EVs as a whole is a huge revolution. Before manufacturing and encouraging the buying of EVs use must have a proper infrastructure, more charging stations, road safety instructions, etc. People must be properly educated on the advantages of using EVs.

As we know the climate is changing drastically, pollution by vehicles has been one of the major factors in it. As more and more vehicles using petrol and diesel are increasing, pollution is increasing. Cities in India have become polluted to the greatest extent, the Air Index is worst in major cities like Delhi, Mumbai, etc making it unfit to breathe. Air pollution is causing various Respiratory Diseases and in the worst-case Cancer. We must change things in order to save ourselves. Also, petrol and diesel are non-renewable sources of energy. In recent year the natural resources have depleted and are depleting at a faster rate. A time will definitely come when these natural resources will be gone and no further petrol or diesel will be available. EVs are the best possible solution for reducing environmental damage as well as reducing the depletion rate of natural resources.

At last, I would like to conclude that India should get ready for using EVs rapidly keeping the economy as well as the environment in mind. Not only India but the world must be ready for EVs, to give a beautiful and healthy future to the next generation.

As my point, in some city of India, the electrical vehicle should be first priority after seeing the environment scenario of such cities like Delhi. Where the pollution is at a peak. So to use an electric vehicle is necessary for such type of city before it going to be so late so we can compensate or manage the environmental issues of such cities. So whatever the cost of infrastructure should be done and have to give first priority to such cities for an electric vehicle. Because all we know that the electric vehicle is does not affect the environment badly and also it does not produce noise pollution. And even the cost of charging the battery will be going to be less conpare to the fuels like diesel and petrol. And in another city of India which not so much polluted there currently electric vehicle is not needed. Because India is a big country and has the second-largest pollution in the world. So the infrastructure of an electric vehicle is going to give a high cost to the government. Because in such type of country if do the change immediately that will give us adverse effect although the electric vehicle is one of the steps to making our country from developing to developed. But it is a step by step process. That should be followed accordingly. And yes after looking at the scenario of GDP growth rate of India currently we can't go for the electric vehicle but yes we have to go for an electric vehicle in such cities where pollution is on the peak.

Hi Guys!

In my opinion, India is ready for electric vehicles right now, but in some parts of the country, it's not. We will certainly start using these electric vehicles facility in nearby years in every small and big districts and cities. And it will be a great initiative by govt if this implements in almost every small and big districts and cities.

We are also not ready because as many of the people are not well known or don't know the benefits of these electric vehicles. So they must be taught about this kind of vehicle.

If it happens it will solve the problem of pollution more than half of the total pollution that is by the emission of carbon monoxides and nitrogen oxides and almost a quarter of the hydrocarbons emitted into our air.

It takes time for them to recognize. As it has good things such as Eco-friendly and less Maintenance but people offer to buy a car that travels fast. And they prefer to be at the time. They need not like wast time in charge.

Yes, I think India is ready for electric vehicles as India is a developing country and unlike other developed countries EV will help India to reduce sound and air pollution. We cannot deny the fact that EV are expensive but according to me its an one time investment as there is low maintenance cost as well as the vehicles do not need diesel/petrol. We have been successfully operating electric trains that have saved us a lot of investment so will EVs would do.

Benefits of electric vehicles:

1) low maintenance cost.
2) reduction in pollution.
3) help save diesel and petrol.

INDIA needs electric vehicles. Though its a very expensive thing but doing this has more advantages than disadvantages.

As we are knowing that India is a developing country since our childhood. Since electric vehicles have already been adopted by so many developed countries like Us, China so India must also adopt EVs as they are eco-friendly. EVs produces almost negligible noise which is the major concern with other conventional vehicles.

Since EVs donot use any fuel or liquid additives so there is no any chance of changing any parts of it because of the damage produced by the liquid additives. Also EVs have less parts compared to conventional vehicles so time to time maintenance is not required.

Since India is running electric train from long time before which is very much successful step as it is saving lot of fuel and also avoiding the pollution. So why can't India switch to EVs from conventional vehicles.

As we all know that nothing comes with 100 percent assurity so there are some points of concern also associated with EVs as it requires a large number of set up of electric charging unit. Also EVs do not accelerate at a faster rate. One of the major concern of EVs is the development of high power of battery as it requires a lot of time to get charged killing a lot of time.

Good evening all of you.

I think my point of view, India is still not ready for electric vehicles because India is still a developing country, not a developed country. There are many other things and factors to be developed in India, for example, there are many villages in India still not getting proper water and electricity. So making a charging station for electric vehicles instead of providing proper electricity to the villages is not appropriate. And also the electric vehicle may run slow and have to charge after some interval of distance travel. So the construction of such number of the electric vehicle charging station is may costly. I know the electric vehicles are eco frindly but we have to charge the electric vehicles so the electricity may consume. And the percentage of electricity and say the share of electricity in India by the thermal power plant is large compare to others. So in thermal power plant because of coal the Nox and so2 formation is there that effect the environment. As nowadays the reuse of flue gases from such power plant may decrease the amount of Nox and so2 gases but I think India has to make a big share of electricity from hydropower plant, wind power plant and nuclear power plant then and then we can think about the electric vehicles. And it takes some more years in India to develop such non-conventional power plant. So I think my point of at this time India is not ready for electric vehicles because to providing electricity to the remote villages is first priority instead of providing an electric charging station for an electric vehicle. Thank you.

In my opinion, definitely yes as most of the vehicles produce a bad effect on our environment and sound effect as well.

I completely agree with the fact that they are a little expensive than the other vehicle but as there are many companies like Suzuki, Mahindra are working in it to give us a vehicle at a reasonable rate.


1. Eco freindly.

No, India is not ready for electric vehicles because the efficiency of these vehicles is less compare to fuel Vehicles. Electric Vehicles are running very slow and a waste of time.

In other words, they are eco-friendly. They can't release any gases, no sound pollution.

If the efficiency of electric Vehicles is increased it very useful in our society.

Yes, according to me, India is ready for electric vehicles. As electric vehicles are expensive. But they have a very low maintenance cost and they don't want any type of conventional fuels (diesel or petrol). And electricity is a very clean source of energy and if one wants he can put a solar cell on his rooftop and then it will be a one-time investment and he can save a lot of money. But there is a flow with electric vehicles that their performance is very low and we do not have any fuel station like the conventional fuel station. So if the govt of India can do something can do anything on this problem then there is a very bright future of electric vehicles in India. And as the use of electric vehicles can lead to decrease the pollution and will fairly reduce the cost of transportation for the common men.

I don't think that India is ready as of now. To reach to this kind of development, it will at the very minimum take 10 years. There are certain points which I need to put to prove this point. India is a kind of country where people don't easily get into the habit of attempting something out of league. Here perception of people around us matter more. The fall of Nano is a very good example of this. Its not about a vehicle, its about owning a status symbol.

The second thing is that EVs have had a pretty bad public perception owing to the poor initial impressions and performance of the EVs which have till now been introduced in India.

The third major concern is the absence of the EV infrastructure. India is a vast country. To set up the kind of infrastructure required for supporting the EVs on road will definitely take time.

And with these factors in mind there are very less chances that Indian EV market will attract the Carmakers to take this kind of risk.

I think it will be great initiative but when we think deeply about the electric cars we will find that petrols car are much better the EV because in now situation we are mostly generating energy by thermal power plant and this seems that we are creating pollution because T.P.P runs by coals and gases and this makes pollution. So, as we will use EV then we will consume more energy and get polluted to environment. So it's good to us electric cars but, when we will produce pollution free energy like nuclear power and hydroelectric power because it is in less amount in India.

Hello friends,

Myself Bhargav.

I think India is still in the preparation stage for electric vehicles because.

1. The electric charging stations are not available everywhere in India except for the metropolitan cities like Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru and recently in the upcoming capital Amaravathi by KIA motors. Due to this fact they are not preferable for long distance drives.

2. Initial cost, battery cost, less no of sources for batteries, time for charging are making people not to prefer electric vehicle.

3. In order to reduce pollution in many metropolitan cities like Delhi, Mumbai etc and make eco-friendly.

4. The government has also launched schemes like FAME (faster adoption and manufacturing of electric vehicles) I & II and sanctioned a huge sum of amount for the development of hybrid and electric vehicles by providing subsidies on electric vehicles.

5. Private organizations like Mahindra and Mahindra has also stepped forward by introducing the electric versions like Reva, e2o and by constructing many electric charging stations in the major cities.

6. Recently ola, an online cab booking service has also launched its electric vehicle project in Nagpur in collaboration with Mahindra, as a part of its mission electric programme.

7. Some private organizations are forming partnerships like Mahindra and ford, Suzuki and Toyota to make electric mobility solutions available at an affordable for the Indian consumers.


Electric vehicles in India are still in the developing stage which is being promoted by the government as well as the original equipment manufacturers (automotive industry) in order to make the eco-friendly environment and cost-effective journey for the passengers.

But the EV has more advantages that overcome its disadvantages. Yes, it will take time to fully convert to EV but initiative must be required not all over the country but in heritage sites and metro cities. It will come as a start to reduce pollution and other environmental impacts of fossile fuel based vehicles.

My answer would be yes. Because population and pollution of India are increasing day by day. Price of petrol and diesel is also increasing day by day. We need to solve these problems by accepting the electric vehicles in our country. We know that it's initial cost is high but it's running cost is very low as compared to petrol or diesel vehicles. Torque t6 is the best ever bike in India and it is the fastest bike in the world, only the cost is high but we can afford this, it's price is only 1.5 lacks rupees. So electric vehicles are the future technology of our country and we have to accept it before time.

No, it's not.

Although electric vehicles are 100 percent eco friendly. They do not emit any harmful gas and is good for environment. It reduces pollution. It is a good idea to introduce electric vehicles in India but India is not ready for this major change and there are many reasons regarding this.

First of all, electric vehicles need large charging stations which is difficult to build at every place of the country. Building charging stations need a lot of space, in India, even now many people don't have a safe place to live so our government should for this cause first. Second reason is that for every 200 km electric vehicles require 5 to 6 hours of charging. So for traveling long distances electric vehicles are not preferred. Even it's speed is also not so high. And if someone is getting late than they will surely not prefer this. Even many areas of our country are still not so developed. They do not have proper electricity supply, in that case charging of vehicle will be a major issue.

So, before installing electric vehicles there is a lot to be done. Only then we can say that India is fully ready for electric vehicles.

Many reasons have been stated before this post, but I disagree with some of them as I don't think that India is ready for electric vehicles. Some of my friends have stated that because of the population we should move to EVs, but there are many other constraints too that matter a lot like do we have the proper infrastructure like charging points for these vehicles. If it will be planned that the charging stations will be made, then do we have that much area because there are many people in India who still don't have a place to live, the shelter for them. First-of-all, the Indian govt should facilitate them, and then think of EVs until then we can rely on CNGs which is a good option as per the present scenario and also we have CNG filling stations which ready to use.

Another reason why we should not go for EVs is that India is a developing country, so its citizens need speed which these EVs are not able to fulfil. They (public transport EVs) run max at the speed of 45kmph which is not enough. These vehicles need proper maintenance whereas nowadays, various brands are launching vehicles that need minimum maintenance. Also, EVs need minimum 3-4 hrs to charge and also they get discharged after every 200 km. So it's not a deal of profit or any kind of benefit.

So, from my point of view, India is not ready for EVs.

In my opinion, India is not ready for EV (electric vehicle) As EV require charging centre for charging their battery and it requires a lot of time, whereas petrol filling time is very less, so it will not be easy for people to move to EVs.

As there is no infrastructure (charging centre, EV vehicle maintenance centre etc) in India for EVs it is one of major reason. EVs are not considered good for long distances as they require charging of 5to 6hours after every 200 km drive.
