India Electric Vehicle Market


India Electric Vehicle Market Trends:

Rising Prices of Fuel

The rising fuel prices in India are significantly contributing to the growth of the electric vehicle (EV) market. As the cost of gasoline and diesel continues to escalate, consumers are increasingly turning to electric vehicles as a cost-effective alternative. For instance, in the fiscal year 2023, the high-speed diesel oil wholesale price index in India exceeded INR 191. In India, the price index value of diesel oil rose by around 91% when compared to 2012. This shift is driven by the lower operating costs associated with EVs, which include reduced fuel expenses and lower maintenance costs compared to internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. Besides this, the surging price of crude oil is also shifting the demand towards electric vehicles. For instance, in the fiscal year 2023, the average price of Indian basket crude oil was projected to be US$ 97.67 per barrel. This figure represents a significant rise above the average of US$ 78.19 per barrel in the previous year. Moreover, advances in battery technology are enhancing the appeal of EVs. Improved energy density, faster charging times, and longer driving ranges are addressing consumer concerns about range anxiety and convenience, making EVs a more practical choice for everyday use​. For instance, in March 2024, MG Motor India launched MG ZS EV new Excite Pro variant that comes with fast charging. The model would get the power from a 50.3 kWh battery pack that offers a range of 461 km on a single charge. Moreover, it just takes 60 minutes to get to 80% with a 50-kW charger. These factors are further positively influencing the India electric vehicle market forecast.

Increasing Government Initiatives

The Indian government has introduced various initiatives to promote the adoption of electric vehicles and the development of charging infrastructure. For instance, in February 2024, the Ministry of Heavy Industries, Government of India, launched the Electric Mobility Promotion Scheme (EMPS) 2024. This is a fund-limited scheme with a total of Rs. 500 crores over the course of four months, from April 1, 2024, to July 31, 2024, to encourage the faster adoption of electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers. The goal is to further boost the nation's EV manufacturing ecosystem and promote green mobility. Moreover, advances in charging technologies, such as fast chargers and battery swapping stations, are making EVs more convenient for consumers. This is helping to alleviate range anxiety, a common concern among potential EV buyers. For instance, in May 2024, Exicom launched Harmony Gen 1.5 DC, India's fastest DC Charger with a capacity of up to 400 kW. The charger is equipped with an advanced AI-driven remote management system, high operational efficiency, and many more features. These factors are escalating the industry’s growth. In addition, the rapid urbanization, and the development of smart cities in India are creating a conducive environment for the adoption of electric vehicles. Smart city projects often include the establishment of EV charging infrastructure as part of their urban planning. For instance, in February 2024, Hyundai Motor India launched 11 ultra-high-speed public EV charging stations across key highways and six major cities in India. These factors are further contributing to the India electric vehicle market share.

Development of Self-Driving Electric Vehicle Technology

Self-driving capabilities add an extra layer of convenience and comfort for consumers. Integration of autonomous features in electric vehicles makes them more attractive options compared to traditional vehicles, leading to an increased adoption. Moreover, self-driving EVs can potentially reduce operational costs for businesses and individual owners. Features like autonomous driving and parking can lead to improved fuel efficiency, lower maintenance costs, and reduced labor expenses across the transportation and logistics sectors. For instance, in April 2024, Ola, a mobility platform, launched a unique addition to the electric scooter market: the 'Ola Solo.' Solo, known as 'India's first autonomous electric scooter,' has features that promise to revolutionize urban commuting. The Solo electric scooter is packed with technology, including cutting-edge AI capabilities for a smarter, safer, and more convenient journey. Solo, which is powered by an in-house built chip called the LMA09000, uses artificial intelligence to traverse streets. Its adaptive system, JU-GUARD, ensures constant learning from each ride, which improves efficiency and performance. In line with this, in 2023, Minus Zero, an AI start-up based in Bengaluru launched India's first autonomous vehicle. The electric device known as zPod, which is built on a camera-sensor suite, can operate in any type of environment or location and can even reach Level 5 autonomy, which means it can operate without human intervention in all driving conditions. These factors are bolstering the India electric vehicle market revenue.
