According to a top official from the JSW Group, the Sajjan Jindal-led conglomerate is looking into electric vehicle manufacturing.

“The group had previously examined EV manufacturing plans but now it’s becoming attractive,” stated Seshagiri Rao, JSW Group Chief Financial Officer.

He said that the manufacturing of EVs was being discussed at the group level while revealing JSW’s plans to expand its presence in other sectors.

Rao stated that the group plans to make four-wheelers. Rao said that the location of manufacturing is still to be determined. He stated that the timeline for the launch of an electric vehicle manufacturing plant was in the advanced stages.
