India EV Market
India EV Market

The India EV Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 42% during the forecast period. India’s EV industry is gaining momentum, aided by government initiatives and rising oil prices. However, the massive shift from internal combustion engine vehicles (ICE) to electric vehicles requires the expansion of infrastructure facilities, including charging stations, and vehicles capable of providing longer range (KM range on a single charge). Moreover, several initiatives taken by the government to support the manufacturing and adoption of electric vehicles in the country should help in achieving the target of 100% EV adoption by 2030 according to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF). These initiatives include the Battery Swapping Policy. On April 22, 2022, NITI Aayog published a draft battery replacement policy effective until March 31, 2025. The policy will be implemented over a period of one to two years from the policy implementation date and will cover all large cities with a population of 4 Mn or more. The second phase will run for two to three years from the policy’s launch date and will cover all Union Territories (UTs) and major cities with a population of 500,000 or more.

Some of the major players operating in the market include AUDI AG, BMW AG, Hyundai Motor Company, Jaguar Land Rover Automotive PLC, Mahindra & Mahindra Limited, The Mercedes-Benz Group AG, MG MOTOR UK Limited, Olectra Greentech Limited, Tata Motors Limited, and Toyota Motor Corporation are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst product, BEV segment to witness robust CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on product, the market is classified into BEV and PHEV. The BEV segment catered to a dominating share of the EV market in India in 2020. The segment’s dominant market share can be attributed to consumers’ growing preference for EVs over internal combustion engine (ICE) cars and regulations on vehicle CO2 emissions. BEVs have the potential to drastically lower vehicle emissions as well as the long-term cost of ownership. Over the projected period, it is also anticipated that improvements in battery technology and falling lithium-ion battery prices will fuel demand for BEVs.

“Amongst vehicle type, the commercial vehicles segment to hold a significant share in the market in 2020”

Based on vehicle type, the market is divided into passenger cars, commercial vehicles, and two wheelers. Commercial vehicles include electric buses, three-wheelers, and electric cars and this segment held a significant share of the market in 2020. The ongoing deployment of electric light-duty commercial vehicles and electric buses in the nation is responsible for the segment’s expansion. As the government pursues aggressive plans to increase the number of electric cars on the road in order to minimize vehicle pollution in the nation’s major cities, electric buses are already gaining popularity. Electric light-duty commercial vehicles and electric buses are already on the market in the nation because of the companies like Tata Motors, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, and Olectra Greentech Limited.
