EVs likely to hit the roads in India soon
The government of the state of Andhra Pradesh in India had said at a Cabinet meeting in May 2018 that it had decided to promote the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) by extending incentives to consumers, charging infrastructure providers and automakers.
As a result of the decision by the State government, EVs will likely be hitting the roads in Andhra Pradesh in the near future.
Despite the fact that a few electric two-wheelers have been moving on the roads in Visakhapatnam of late, a wider adoption of EVs in the state, and in India as a whole, is still a distant reality because of the obvious lack of EV charging infrastructure.
To resolve the issue of inadequate EV charging infrastructure in Andhra Pradesh, the State government has apparently told the municipalities to take the necessary action for deployment of charging points at select locations.
With regard to ongoing EV efforts in Andhra Pradesh, J. Bhanu Prakash -- Project Director (EVs) -- has told The Hindu that the New and Renewable Energy Development Corporation of Andhra Pradesh (NREDCAP) will likely act as the nodal agency for implementation of the electric mobility project in the State. Prakash said that “the modalities of promoting the use of EVs would be worked out” soon, once a G.O. is released by the State about its EV policy.
