Future Mobility / Electric and Hybrid Vehicles
A number of technologies are converging to change the way people and goods travel from one point to another. The new mobility eco-system will be influencing the traffic and transportation sector with offerings for fast, economic, sustainable, safe, efficient and customised & comfortable travel. We will move away from ownership of cars to shared mobility or from driver driven cars to autonomous and connected vehicles. While electric vehicles and highspeed rails will take over, hyperloop or gyroscopic vehicles are emerging as well. Future mobility will depend more on smart roads, drones, AI, sensors & data, at the same time on elevated cycle paths and improved walk paths.
Electric and Hybrid Vehicles form the major element of Future Mobility in India going by the investments and policies of the Government. There are plans to make the country a 100% EV nation by 2030. In line with this, in Union Budget 2018, the government allocated $40.5 million towards the development of electric and hybrid vehicles in the country. The Indian electric vehicle market size was valued at $71.1 million in 2017 and is projected to reach $707.4 million by 2025. This is a step toward a more sustainable and cleaner environment.
Electric bus manufacturers are all working with various state governments to electrify India’s public transport. With this comes the development of Charging technology & infrastructure in tandem with the entire EV ecosystem. The Expo brings together EVS, Charging technology providers, Central Monitoring Systems providers, alternate energy providers and other stakeholders.
