This paper briefly illustrates e-mobility history and Indian global e-mobility patterns. The paper analyses some of the key challenges that are present today with regard to the adoption of electric vehicles for the different vehicle segments. Data has shown major challenges of e-mobility are high product cost, low range per charge, inadequate charging infrastructure. All these issues typically are like a "hen or egg" situation. However with Financial measure (decrease tax, subsidy) make in India initiative product cost can be reduced. One of the positive aspects with electric vehicles is that these can be charged at many places like homes, workplaces, malls, parking spots etc. However, proper and suitable charging infrastructure will need to be in place at such locations. Battery swapping technology will eliminate wait time for charging, make better use of land, reduce the size of batteries in vehicles and will give an increased available run time. The paper highlight various business models, the first multi-modal e-mobility pilot in India, Lithium Urban Technologies (P) Ltd Revolt Bike Indian government initiatives to encourage the adoption of EVs in India. Prioritization of the EV method would assist India to achieve its goal of EV adoption.
