India is moving rapidly towards cleaner transportation with the growth in electric mobility. The Indian government has introduced suitable policy frameworks to promote electric vehicles, with significant R&D efforts towards developing EV components and sub-systems considering local tropical conditions. However, talk has revolved mostly around procurement of new electric fleets. What happens to the many existing ICE vehicles? This is where the important topic of retrofitting electric vehicles comes in. The government has allowed conversion of old vehicles into hybrid electric vehicles through retrofitting to curb rising vehicular pollution. In this webinar, Mr. Nakul Kukar, Co-founder and CEO of Cell Propulsion, and Mr. Shalendra Gupta, CFO and Co-founder of Altigreen, threw light on key elements of this topic that will be of interest to various groups, including policymakers, OEMs, and EV component manufacturers.
