The government of India has made a number of electric vehicle-related policies announcements for the deployment of electric vehicles in the country. As EESL will aggregate demand by procuring electric vehicles in bulk to get economies of scale. India is one of the largest users of 2-wheeler is going to witness a fast shift to EVs as it the inherent advantage of easy charging. By establishing more battery manufacturing companies EV’s costs will become more and more affordable with the reduction of battery cost and battery swapping technology need to be adopted more for a quick charge filling.

EV segment in India has evolved significantly over the last year which was driven by Govt. tenders (EESL, NTPC), release of EV Charging standards for < 100 V vehicles, issuance of clarification on sale of electricity for EV charging and OEM announcements for EV launches in 2019/2020. This has laid a foundation for new business models and launches to be witnessed in 2019. We will also release of EV Charging standards for more than 100 V vehicles. The emobility sector will further evolve in the context of several larger trends, some specific to India, and some relevant globally.EV segment in India has evolved significantly over the last year which was driven by Govt. tenders (EESL, NTPC), release of EV Charging standards for < 100 V vehicles, issuance of clarification on sale of electricity for EV charging and OEM announcements for EV launches in 2019/2020.

The emobility sector will further evolve in the context of several larger trends, some specific to India, and some relevant globally.Infrastructure developmentThe growth in the EV segment is contingent upon the infrastructure development. The government has re-categorized public EV charging from licensed activity to service delivery in order to attract more players to set up charging stations.[1] Emergence of several players to build charging network stations, and collaboration of charging service providers with utilities and energy companies will drive rapid expansion of charging network.Demand-side growthRide-sharing companies have announced ambitious plans to invest in electric mobility. Ola aims to have 10,000 EVs in 2019 as part of its Mission Electric. Lithium cabs, Bhagirathi are some successful examples and have developed an EV fleet of about 500 vehicles already and are active in enterprise transportation segment. In addition, EVs will play a key role in the last-mile delivery in congested urban areas, providing a fillip to the EV industry from logistics and booming e-commerce companies in India.

Launch of 2nd generation vehicles by OEMsYear 2018 has seen EVs being increasingly used in fleet operations, govt. fleet, airports, corporate cabs which has given OEMs a view of the consumer preferences and challenges they can expect to face in Indian market. With this wealth of data, we expect to see upgraded versions of existing EVs in 2019. OEMs like Nissan-Renault, Hyundai and KIA are expected to launch their global models on Indian roads. These models will have range upwards of 200 kms and faster battery charging times enabling better utilization on fleet.Range Anxiety to decrease as EV Chargers will be in more common placeWe see the availability of public chargers to increase which will enable companies to do more runs and reduce anxiety. With the release of high voltage charging standards, we expect more cars with battery size > 30 kWh and faster charging times. This will lower the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for the fleet owners. With high voltage chargers, the speed of charging will also increase significantly.Battery Swapping as an alternate charging solutionBattery swapping as a solution is likely to be experimented by fleet operators/aggregators in order to reduce charging down time and enable more daily runs increasing revenue earning opportunities for the stakeholders. Considering issues of size standardization, we expect the use to be captive initially and later extend on to a bigger scale.

Major share is captured by 2 & 3 wheelers as E cars were not able to make a dent except for hybrid cars. The main reason of slow sales of e car is mileage anxiety, high cost and weak charging infrastructure. Three wheelers comprising of E Rickshaw, E Auto and E Loader have done very well. The market of 2&3 wheelers would grow at exceedingly good speed in 2019. More than 100 serious manufacturers and assemblers are already working hard and we would see year 2019 as a good beginning in whole EV segment. As has been envisaged year 2020 is the year when the fuel driven vehicles would feel the pinch of electric revolution in India. Apart from this many companies are working 400Kms. E Bus is already a reality in India and phenomenal growth is expected in coming years in this particular segment. Micromax is already a leading player in EV Lithium battery packs with its battery assembly plant located at Bhiwadi. Now we have plans to put cell manufacturing plant in year 2019. The company has timed its cell plant project linked to expected high EV sales in year 2019 & 2020 and our infrastructure part for 2 GWhr Cell manufacturing plant is almost over in 25 acres at Bhiwadi. The future definitely belongs to EV which may run on Lithium, Carbon, Graphene, Hydrogen and other new and renewable energy technologies.

The electric vehicle industry is heating up new entrants flooding the market and major brands dabbling with the idea of launching electric vehicles. With 6 years in the electric vehicle industry, here are the 3 predictions for 2019! The electric vehicle industry is heating up new entrants flooding the market and major brands dabbling with the idea of launching electric vehicles. With 6 years in the electric vehicle industry, here are the 3 predictions for 2019! The only vehicles in the electric vehicle space that made sense until very recently were either slow boring scooters, or super sport vehicles be it race cars or premium electric sedans and SUVs. There is surely going to be a new winner in the electric vehicle space. With the prices of Lithium ion batteries nears 250 USD per KWh thus scooters that could manage a top speed of upto 55 kmph are becoming strong competition to petrol alternatives. Look at vehicles from some of the established brands launching vehicles between Rs. 55,000 and 75,000Prediction: the electric scooters with lithium ion batteries are going to be a major hit this year. The two methods to manufacture the lithium ion packs include importing the cells and making the packs domestically or importing the packs. The advantages of assembling the packs locally are manifold, starting from tighter quality control, faster turnaround time and vertical integration in supply allowing for faster manufacturing cycles.

If we try to compare the cost of manufacturing the packs in India vs Importing them thereentrepreneur is looking for tighter vertical integration, Battery management system design and IP held in house and a battery casing that is a structural or cosmetic part of the vehicle, would get a 20% cheaper cost if done in India, not factoring in any make in India subsidies. 30-35% reduction in cost over china could be achieved if these are factored in.Prediction: Major OEMs are going to move their battery assembly in India, leading to drop in Electric Vehicle prices across segments. India’s smog chamber delhi has recently launched the delhi EV policy, a good step in the right direction to making Electric Vehicles price competitive to petroleum based vehicles. The policy is also going to spearhead the installation of charging infrastructure in the Delhi and NCR region. Fast and longer range electric two wheelers subsidized by about 30% collectively and a substantial support for charging infrastructure as well.Prediction: Delhi is going to be India’s first model Electric Vehicle city, the new Delhi EV policy seems to be a major hit.

In 2019, E-mobility market will be dominated by the launch of Electric Vehicles by automotive giants like Mahindra, Tata, Hyundai and Maruti. The infrastructure will develop around these cars and many other automotive players will announce new launches and models.In 2019, E-mobility market will be dominated by the launch of Electric Vehicles by automotive giants like Mahindra, Tata, Hyundai and Maruti. The infrastructure will develop around these cars and many other automotive players will announce new launches and models.Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure sector will focus mostly on fast charging and public charging, as domestic chargers will take another 1 year to be adopted at domestic level. As the fast charging infrastructure develops, there will be more focus on how to avoid grid modification using storage, power allocation, power spikes and scheduling and real-time monitoring.Most DISCOMs will be coming out with their tariffs and rules for Chargers. The new Electricity Act should bring in new rules so that charger aggregators could buy electricity in open access for all the chargers in a single area, which will make charging even more cost effective.in open access for all the chargers in a single area, which will make charging even more cost effective.The market will move tremendously after Maruti will launch its Electric Wagon-R, which will be trusted and I think adaptable by even the most conservative customers.Electric Vehicle Policy of New Delhi will also be closely watched and it can prove to be a benchmark for other states.A lot of push will be given to public Electric buses by all the state governments in 2019. State electric buses carry a lot of scope as public transport departments own huge parking spaces in form of bus terminals, thus, many chargers can be installed and a visible change in pollution and fuel consumption will be seen in cities.
