India’s mobility transition has so far been dominated by the e-2w and e-rickshaw segments, which do not necessarily need access to public charging infrastructure. If the country is to increase penetration of categories such as electric passenger cars, public charging implementation is imperative. A partnership model can help defray the investment requirements of deploying charging infrastructure, estimated at USD 2.9 billion till 2030.
As per the CEEW-CEF Electric Mobility Dashboard, the states with the highest private e4-wheeler registrations are Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Kerala. Will charger deployment mirror this pattern?
