The businesses in India are now seeking government support to meet up the Electric Vehicle target. The target to make all vehicles electric is by 2030 in the country. The businesses are now expecting support from the government to help them meet the mark, which is merely a decade away. More than 25 companies, including automakers Mahindra & Mahindra and Volvo, oil giant Shell, and clean mobility startups, demand India set strict targets and frame supportive policies for the transition from fuel vehicle to electric vehicles, as per the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
For the first time that companies in India have made this push to switch towards clean mobility. This demand was raised weeks ago at the United Nations conference on climate change- which will be an important event to bring out more commitments to stop global warming.
Joe Phelan, director at the WBCSD in India, said, “after the rapid growth in India’s renewable energy sector, transport decarbonization is India’s next ample opportunity to deal with the issue of climate change.
