India ranks as one of the most polluted country in the world but by 2030, the country aims to change it. It aims to go big on technology and make every car in the country electric by 2030, in order to lower fuel cost and fight pollution.
Briefing the Confederation of Indian Industry Annual Session 2017 in New Delhi, Indian Coal and Mines Minister Piyush Goyal unveiled the plan to introduce electric vehicles in a big way. He said: “We are going to make electric vehicles self-sufficient… The idea is that by 2030, not a single petrol or diesel car should be sold in the country.”
In India, as many as 2.3 million deaths occur each year due to air pollution, according to an investigation report by Greenpeace this year. The report suggested that air pollution had become a ‘’public health and economic crisis” for Indian.
India has overtaken China in number of death due to outdoor air pollution, with Delhi being the most polluted city. With the introduction of electric cars, India aims to tackle down the air pollution. The electric car scheme would first target ‘larger consumer centres’ with high pollution ratio, told Mr Goyal.
