Use of electric vehicles to transform mass transportation in India

Electric vehicles are the way forward for India and must move towards self-sufficient electric vehicles that can replace fossil fuel-based ones. With the scale of pollution in India and alarming projections of worsening climatic conditions in the future, the only way to move forward in quest to achieve environmental sustainability and clean air to breathe is to rapidly move towards electric mobility. There is a need to associate electric vehicles with new patterns of use. Instead of owning one car for years and using it for all transport purposes, people must use several mobility services without owning these, but paying for their short-time use. It is therefore evident that the auto industry needs to shift its business model from selling cars to offering “mobility as a service”.
