India’s leapfrog opportunity to create a shared, electric, and connected mobility future promises to provide Indians with clean, affordable, efficient, and reliable transportation options to support and enhance their daily lives. Initial estimates suggest that shifting to a shared, electric, and connected passenger mobility paradigm may avoid as much as 1 gigatonne of carbon dioxide emissions between 2017 and 2030, and $60 billion in annual petrol/diesel costs in 2030. This bold vision for India’s mobility future and a set of actionable solutions designed to help achieve it were developed by a group of 75 government and industry experts during a charrette co-convened by the Indian government’s premier think-tank, NITI Aayog, and RMI in February 2017 in New Delhi. Following the charrette, NITI Aayog and RMI engaged in a consultative process to formulate a change model designed to accelerate deployment and scale at a pace matched by India’s ambition.
