Costs and Opportunities of India's Transition to Electric Vehicles

08 Dec 2020   |   1730-1900 hrs IST

India's automobile sector contributes about 7 to 8 per cent of the country's gross domestic product. The sector which contributes roughly half of the country's manufacturing GDP is at the verge of a transition with a higher share of electric vehicle sales expected in the coming decade. However, the costs of setting up supply chains and manufacturing capacities for these vehicles is likely to be a significant roadblock.

The webinar will highlight key findings from the study—the investments required, the barriers and critical interventions needed to finance the electric vehicle transition in India. We will delve deeper into the barriers and solutions to this transition, especially given the long gestation nature of such projects and the COVID-19 related slowdown. These insights would be valuable to policymakers, investors, and other stakeholders interested in India's largest manufacturing sector.
