Executive Dialogue 3 – E-mobility Landscape: A Strategy to Decarbonise the Road Transport Sector

New Delhi

Session Brief: In India, road transport contributes 90% of the total transportation-induced carbon emissions. India has committed to reducing the emissions intensity of its gross domestic product (GDP) to 45% below 2005 levels by 2030. E-mobility is among the key strategy being adopted to achieve this goal. The important categories of vehicles for e-mobility include the two-wheelers and three-wheelers (accounting for 80% of the total sales of vehicles), public transport (inter-city and intra-city) and private vehicles. EVs higher upfront cost, range anxiety and potential safety issues and are some of the significant challenges in accelerating EV adoption in India. Battery swapping is among the options being considered as a potential solution that could accelerate EV adoption. This session will discuss the challenges and barriers to EV transformation, battery swapping and the potential for retrofitting of the existing fleet. It will also shed some light on the government’s and industry's efforts in terms of policies and demand aggregation to accelerate the market transformation.
