Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is taking advantage of the post-election honeymoon to push his government’s electric mobility revolution.
The government is expected to set new cutoff dates for a full electric transition of India’s biggest mobility segments.
The plan involves a complete transition to electric three-wheelers, such as auto rickshaws, after March 2023, with no internal combustion engine versions of three-wheelers allowed on the market after that. Scooters and other two-wheelers below 150 cubic centimeters would be battery-powered by the end of March 2025, according to a memo by the government agency NITI Aayog.
