Electric vehicle guidebook for Indian States

Publication Year: 2019

Author(s): Menon A, Yang Z, Bandivadekar A


This guidebook contains reviews of electric vehicle strategies and policies in 32 states or provinces and major cities in India and around the world. These areas have been highly ambitious in seeking to bring electric vehicles into the mainstream and are leading electric vehicle development efforts in the United States, Canada, Europe, China, Japan, and India by adopting comprehensive policies to increase electric vehicle adoption. This guidebook identifies an effective strategic approach and selects policy actions that can be applied by state-level governments in India. Battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are covered in this guidebook. Fuel cell electric vehicles are not included because the technology and infrastructure for them is at a nascent stage. The content of this guidebook applies to all vehicle segments—private, public, and commercial ownership—and includes two-, three-, and four-wheelers.
