India led by visionary Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has a vision for converting all vehicles in India to electric vehicles by 2030.
Automotive Mission Plan has been finalised jointly by Government of India and Indian Automotive Industry. The vision of AMP 2026 is “By 2026, the Indian Automotive industry will be among the top three of the world in engineering, manufacture and export of vehicles and components, and will encompass safe, efficient and environment friendly conditions for affordable mobility of people and transportation of goods in India comparable with global standards growing in value to over 12% of India's GDP and generating an additional 65 million jobs.”
Auto sector has become one of the largest in the world due to the competitive market. The turnover of the sector is equivalent to 7.1% as per the Review Report of Automotive Mission Plan 2016. Govt. approved the National Mission on Electric Mobility in 2011 and subsequently National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) 2020 was unveiled in 2013. As part of the mission, Deptt. of Heavy Industry has formulated a scheme ‐ FAME – India (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles in India) for implementation with effect from 1st April 2015, with the objective to support market development and Manufacturing eco‐system.
Scheme is proposed to be implemented over a period of 6 years, till 2020, wherein it is intended to support the market development and its manufacturing eco‐system. The scheme has 4 focus areas i.e. Technology Development, Demand Creation, Pilot Projects and Charging Infrastructure.
Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has issued notification No. GSR 643(E) dated 19.08.2015 vide in which the mass emission standards for Bharat Stage IV shall come in to force all over the country in respect of four wheeled vehicles manufactured on or after the 1st April, 2017. India will evolve from Bharat Stage (BS) IV emission norms to BS VI by 2020.
Electric car uses alternate fuel electricity instead of petrol or diesel. There is a growing acceptance for hybrid and electric cars and manufacturers are entering this niche segment. Electric vehicles has a potential to save fossil fuels worth about $100 bn annually, which in turn would save foreign exchange, prevent the dependence on imported petroleum products and reduce the pollution in cities.
• India spent Rs 4.7 Lakh Crores in 2016‐17 in importing crude oil. Electric Vehicles will help lower the bill.
• The National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) targets seven million electric and hybrid vehicles by 2020.
India, being one of the largest and booming economy, this is high time to exchange the ideas on how India automotive sector can contribute to the India's vision and priority of replacing conventional vehicle to electric vehicle by the year 2030. The forum will bring all key stakeholders of the emerging electric vehicle market to discuss and deliberate to pertinent issues and concerns. It will be a unique forum to discuss challenges and opportunities of emerging electric vehicle market too.
The EV summit is also aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goal of taking actions in providing clean energy and to the Paris Declaration on Electro‐Mobility and Climate Change & Call to Action that calls for a commitment as stated, "With varying mandates, capabilities, and circumstances, we commit to advance our work individually as well as collectively wherever possible to increase electro‐mobility to levels compatible with a lessthan 2‐degree pathway."
The premier conference for electric and hybrid vehicle technology and innovation. The Summit is the forum where visionary leaders and innovators of the automotive sector will share their views, thoughts and knowledge as well as their agenda on Electric Vehicles. Forum provides comprehensive overview on the electric automobile industry in India. This would also provide useful reference for drawing up new plans, reviewing trends and also in evolving marketing tools and strategies.
Delegates will interact with like‐minded firms and stakeholders and discuss important aspects of electric car and bike, commercial vehicle opportunities and trends etc. The summit allows companies to optimize their presence among stakeholders.
The Summit will attract technical leaders and executives from Indian and global auto companies to reveal what is driving the demand and shaping novel technologies and new innovations at the cutting edge.
