The mobile electric vehicle chargers will be deployed in cities and highways across India, mitigating the range anxiety among electric vehicle (EV) owners. These are equipped with a range of slow and fast chargers to support two-wheelers to commercial vehicles to premium EVs.
IDTechEx consider layered oxide materials, such as NMC and NCA, to remain central to the success of vehicle electrification given the added range they provide.
Tata Steel has contracted for 27 EVs, each with a carrying capacity 35 tonnes of steel (minimum capacity). The Company plans to deploy 15 EVs at its Jamshedpur plant and 12 EVs at its Sahibabad plant.
The government provides subsidy support under the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid) and Electric Vehicles (FAME) scheme and reduced taxation rates to promote EV uptake in India. Purchase of 3,61,000 EVs with incentives cumulating to about INR 600 crore has been supported to date under the FAME Scheme.
The annual sale of battery electric cars is expected to increase from one million in 2020 to reach eight million in 2030. Also, the annual sale of battery electric commercial vehicles is expected to grow from 0.12 million units in 2020 to 1.61 million in 2030.
The new vehicles are expected to reduce 15,000 tonnes of CO2 emission per year.
We increasingly need safe, affordable, and powerful batteries as we move to greener technologies. Battery-powered electric cars, for example, have much higher safety standards than our phones, and for such vehicles to travel long distances, lighter batteries with higher energy density and rapid-charging capabilities would make a world of difference. Majid Rasool, a postdoctoral fellow at McGill University, discusses a potential solution.
The e-commerce player has worked with design and manufacturing partners to procure electric vehicles (EVs) optimized for e-commerce deliveries. It is also planning to set up the necessary charging infrastructure close to its 1,400 supply chain premises to push the use of EVs.
Delinking the battery (which accounts for 30-40% of the total vehicle cost) will bring the upfront cost of the electric 2-wheelers (2W) and 3-wheelers (3W) to be lower than internal combustion engine counterparts. The battery could be provided separately by the original equipment manufacturer or the energy service provider.
The industry body has recommended a series of measures including a continuation of FAME II Scheme to 2025, short-term booster incentives for consumers and support for in-house R&D to boost the electric vehicle sector.
