How the government is incentivizing the EV segment?
The rising demand to mitigate the rising global temperatures has led countries to take actions to curb carbon emissions. With the automobile sector being one-third of the contributor to carbon emissions, governments are leaving no stone unturned for faster adoption of EVs. On the other hand, the spiking prices of fuel in India have made people turn towards EVs. Crossing the 3 lakh mark, India hit the highest ever annual volumes in EVs in the year 2021 and more than doubled when compared to 2020.
