Scaling local value-addition and jobs from EV manufacturing in India

09 Nov 2020   |   1430-1600 hrs IST

The session will mark the launch of our latest study 'Can Electric Mobility Support India's Sustainable Economic Recovery Post COVID-19?' A rapid and sustained transition to electric mobility in India hinges on domestic manufacturing with a high degree of localisation. This will allow for better control over the quality of EV components and lower costs which will accelerate EV adoption in India. There are several building blocks to realising a globally competitive EV industry in India and this will require several stakeholders to act in concert.

During the session, we will unpack strategies to scale investments into EV component manufacturing and the role of stable and long-term policies. We will also delve into possible pre-emptive measures to assuage the impact on ICE manufacturing jobs and a potential fuel tax revenue hit for central and state governments.
