Undertaken By: Council on Energy, Environment and Water,    Recent Publication: 2019

The automotive industry in India is facing headwinds – from a general economic downturn to the need to improve emissions performance and the impending shift to electrification. Charting the future course of the auto industry, especially with regard to electrification, will require an in-depth understanding of the opportunities and impacts that can be expected. This study attempts to assess these by comparing a scenario with 30 per cent electric car (EV) sales in 2030 against a business-as-usual (BAU) scenario with limited EV penetration.
