SIAM Aims 100% Electric Vehicles In India By 2047

A white paper released by SIAM says that it will take 30 years for a complete shift to EVs.

 

A white paper submitted by the Society of India Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) on Electric Vehicles to the Government of India states that it will take three decades for India to shift to a complete electric vehicle regime. The white paper says that 100% electric mobility (public and personal) will be achieved by the year 2047, while 100% electric mobility (public) and 40% electric mobility (personal) will be achieved by the year 2030.

 

SIAM says that by the year 2030, all intra-city public transport fleet vehicles for sale will be electric, while the number for new private vehicle sales is expected to be 40%. SIAM also says that by 2030 around 60% of all new vehicle sales in the country will employ some kind of green tech or use alternate fuels. By 2047, which is the 100th year of India’s Independence, 100% of all new vehicle sales in the country (public and private) are expected to sport 100% electric drivetrains (battery electric or fuel cell).

 

SIAM says that to achieve a smooth transitioning to electric vehicles, the IC (internal combustion) engine tech will need to be continuously upgraded over the next decade to use more cleaner fossil fuels. In the process SIAM expects the Indian automobile industry to become a global hub for design, manufacture and export of electric vehicles.

 

Dr Abhay Firodia, President, SIAM in a statement said that to make sure that this vision is realized, the industry, government and various stakeholders will need to collaborate and invest with 100% commitment.

 

He emphasised that the proposed policy measures in the White Paper would be needed for creating a robust market and manufacturing eco-system for electric vehicles in the country and such a policy must be sustained over time to remain stable to enable industry commit to investments with full confidence.

 

The policy should be necessarily adaptive in view of the nature of the technology which is fast evolving while at the same time must not bring sudden changes so as to allow outcomes in a planned manner and to ensure that the necessary transformation takes place with the minimum of disruption which may have socio-economic impact in terms of industrial growth, employment and livelihood of people in the auto industry.
