India has two categories of electric cars, based on their range and battery capacity. The current Indian e-4W market is dominated by cars with a range of 100-200 km and a lower battery pack capacity. This study aims to facilitate the planning and establishment of public e-4W charging infrastructure in Indian cities. There are various elements involved in e-4W charging, such as the vehicle models, e-4W segments, types of chargers and their technical and commercial specifications, observed commute/ travel patterns, factors involved in selecting charging facility locations, available electricity distribution network, etc. The purpose of this study is to provide general guidance for setting up public e-4W charging infrastructure in an Indian city.
