High Demand For Electric Vehicles In India
With the rising fuel prices, electric vehicles are turning out to be the best alternative. Along with this, the central government and various state governments have also announced incentives and subsidies to support citizens. Electric vehicles are pollution-free as well, which helps in controlling the carbon print. In metro cities, the population is a major problem, and hence electric vehicles can help change this cause greatly. In recent few years, a lot of electric vehicle companies have entered the Indian market with more to follow. The charging infrastructure is still very slim, and there’s a lot to do in this domain.
