What’s holding us back from adopting electric mobility in a big way? When can India see an increased uptake of EVs? How did the Nordic region get there?
On this episode, Awadhesh Kumar Jha joins me to discuss this topic in detail particularly covering three points
- What is it about the mind set of people that is required to enable the shift to personal electric mobility?
- The narrative around the policy and the communication from the government agencies which is essential for both the manufacturers and the general public.
- Debunking the myths around the transition to electric mobility with a few references to other countries.
On the policy front listen to why it is not advisable to set sector wise electrification targets when the entire automobile sector is under private control.
