India: India’s hybrid car maker ‘worse than a brick’ for pollution and safety – News24

Posted by admin

India’s carmakers are still struggling to deliver the country’s most affordable electric vehicles to consumers.

The country’s government has not been able to come up with a plan to deliver its most affordable EVs to the market, a major problem given that the vehicles have been plagued by the issue of pollution and lack of safety.

India is still the world’s second largest market for electric vehicles, after China.

According to the India Bureau of Statistics, India has the third-highest number of cars on roads in the world after the United States and the European Union.

The government has yet to develop a national strategy for EVs and is expected to issue one later this year.

The problem is that while the country has a long history of investing in electric vehicles in terms of technology and subsidies, it has not managed to attract sufficient number of vehicles to make them commercially viable.

According to India’s Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), there are only 11,000 electric vehicles on the roads.

DeitY estimates that there are around 3.4 million hybrid cars and more than 2 million petrol-powered vehicles in India.

While the country is expected have around 2,500 electric cars on the road by 2020, only around 300,000 petrol-driven vehicles have so far been sold.

DeitsY said the government was planning to set up a hybrid car manufacturing facility in Bengaluru to make electric cars.

The facility is expected soon to produce more than 50,000 vehicles.

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MHT) said in a statement that the ministry is “focusing on building up the supply chain” and that it is looking at setting up a joint venture between two companies in Bengal.

The ministry said it has already taken steps to ensure that electric vehicles can be produced in India in large numbers, and that all of the vehicles being sold will be produced using only clean, energy-efficient vehicles.

The ministry also said that it will set up an energy efficiency center in Bengal to provide training to the state’s automotive industry.

India has one of the world-highest pollution rates and a long track record of environmental problems, including high levels of toxic emissions and road accidents.

The country’s economy has struggled with low wages, high inflation, and a lack of jobs.

The government has been slow to address these issues.

In 2016, the government announced an ambitious clean energy target that aims to cut pollution by 40 per cent by 2030.
