The Indian government recently announced that it will head towards using purely electric cars by 2030, which leaves only 13 years for this transition from petrol and diesel to electric.
Making the switch from petrol and diesel cars to fully electric cars will be beneficial for two main reasons. Scandinavia has also adopted the plan to switch to electric vehicles, having an estimated 100,000 electric cars in use so far. Only a few thousand of cars in India are electric powered. Electric cars so far seem entirely futuristic, as the concept of fully battery powered cars is new to everyone. Whilst using electric cars is so far a new idea that’s slowly being implemented, it is an idea that is rapidly becoming a legitimate alternative to petrol and diesel.
2030 might seem like an ambitious target, but the current growing interest in electric cars could mean that 13 years is an entirely achievable goal.
