Electric Vehicles

Objective:

This mission is critical for India to reduce fossil fuel consumption and mitigate emissions. Electric vehicles (EVs) are a major component of India' mobility plans. For EVs to become economically viable and scalable, focussed research, development and innovation are needed to build indigenous capability. Vehicles need to be energy efficient, use light-weight and efficient batteries that function well in Indian conditions with materials that are recycleable. Developing vehicle sub-systems and components for Indian requirements including rare-earth based electric motors, Lithium-ion batteries, power electronics etc. will be addressed using academia-industry collaborations.
