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

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

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. It requires less maintenance than conventional vehicles as there are fewer fluids to change and fewer moving parts.

Hello, friends, I'm Mayank.

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.

Most important India is already failing in producing EVs and Making them drive on road by providing proper services even in a single city.

In my point of view, Today's scenario regarding the facilities of road and vehicles, India is not yet ready for running an electric vehicle. As many of the big cities has now turned into the smart cities so by using This technology, It would really be beneficial for our country only when better road with less traffic is maintained. It is one of the best way to reduce pollution as well as it will improve digitalization providing better efficiency in less time.

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.

Instead of that, it will reduce the pollution level in the atmosphere and the government will not money afford much on reducing the level of pollution by gadgets.

Hi everyone,

According to me, electric vehicle is needed for everyone because it reduce cost of fuel, avoid noise, and it producted for pollution. So, electric vehicle is good for every people.

According to my point of view.

India is not ready to EVs right now. Because of the cost & certain limitations in transport system. As the cost is high of EVs, people are not aware about the same. The launching models of EVs need to do some improvement for better performance. As we can travel with petrol /diesel vehicle as long much we can due to easy process of filling petrol n diesel while on other side we can't go more than 250 km in single charging time was almost 6-7 hrs even if we replace the batteries the cost and weight of vehicles will goes on increasing.

NITI AAYOG is mulling over giving a target to state public transporters to deploy a certain percentage of electric vehicles in their new orders, while it will refrain from coming out with a policy on electric vehicles.

As per an estimate, India at present has 1 to 1.5 lakh electric vehicles and it is projected to grow to about 5 per cent of the total vehicles in the next five years. Of the about 24 million vehicles sold in India in 2017-18, electric vehicles accounted for barely about 1 per cent.

Indian govt sets the deadline for all internal combustion engine by 2030.

Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) and the government has decided to procure electric cars from manufacturers in India and make them available.

Mahindra was already launched e20plus and eVerito in India.

In my opinion, India is not ready for using electronic vehicles yet. Bcs road is not in a proper condition to use ev. And maintance is also difficult. Cost is also too much hight which is not affordable for everyone. And even if you want to go long digstance. So petrol is easly available. But 6 and 7-hour charging totally difficult for us.

EV, as we know will help a lot in reducing pollution but they are costly & not soo speedy.

Every one requires speed for reaching there destination point earlier. And rich people are not going to drive these vehicles. Poor will do & they don't have much money for it. So when the drawbacks will be removed I think on that point India will be ready for electric vehicles.

I think India need a high performance electric vehicles as here in India vehicles having off-road feature is very essential, as we all are aware of roads here. So, I think we just not need a simple electric vehicle but at the same time, we need an e-car not to show off other. We need it to make our life reliable.
