The Action Taken Report of the Committee deals with the Action Taken by the Ministry of Heavy Industries on the recommendations contained in the Committee’s Three Hundred and Ninth Report on Electric & Hybrid Mobility – Prospects and Challenges in Automobile Industry pertaining to Ministry of Heavy Industries.

There is increasing interest in hybrid vehicles globally and India is no exception. With passenger car CO2 standards expected to become more stringent in the coming years, manufacturers are likely to turn to 48V hybrids for the Indian market, as is already happening in Europe.

This paper provides a comprehensive overview of mild-hybrid technology and recent developments in 48V mild hybridization of conventional vehicle powertrains. It estimates the CO2 reduction potential, as well as current and future system cost, for different mild-hybrid electric vehicle (MHEV) system configurations.

This briefing assesses the annual progress on the global transition to electric vehicles (EVs) at the global, regional, and national levels. Global EV sales reached a record-high of 6.9 million in 2021, a 107% increase from 2020. It is the first time since 2012 that the global EV sales doubled in one year.

The potential of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) to reduce fuel consumption and global greenhouse gas emissions depends on how much they are effectively driven on electricity.

Recent studies show that plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) show a large gap between real-world and official type-approval CO2 emissions.

The Department-related Parliamentary Standing Committee on Industry presented its 309th Report on “Electric & Hybrid Mobility – Prospects And Challenges in Automobile Industry”, pertaining to Ministry of Heavy Industries to the Parliament on 6th December, 2021.

This study focuses on EV charging infrastructure, related policy and regulatory measures, grid integration of EVs, and the way forward for smooth EV adaption in the Indian EV ecosystem.

India’s transition to electric vehicles (EVs) has advanced rapidly in the past few years. A supportive policy environment, improving economics, and emerging business models have poised the EV market for significant growth in the coming decade.

Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), which combine an electric and a conventional combustion engine drive train, offer the potential to reduce global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and local air pollution if they drive mainly on electricity.
