EV Taxi before EV passenger cars?

India’s top automakers are steering away from polluting diesel models, but the real push towards cleaner electric vehicles is coming from the country’s cab aggregators.


Market leader Maruti Suzuki announced late last month that it will not sell any diesel vehicles from April next year, when the Bharat Stage VI emission standards kick in. The norms will make diesel models substantially more expensive. Tata Motors, the country’s fourth largest carmaker, too, has indicated that it’s planning to stop selling small diesel cars after the new standards are enforced.

Corrupt Govt officers refuse Electric Cars

In a major setback to the Indian government and Mr Nitin Gadkari’s big push fpr using electric cars with a view to save petrodollars, the senior government officials have refused to use electric cars made by homegrown carmakers – Mahindra and Tata Motors according to the report in Livemint.

Corrupt Govt pocket petrol allowance & refuse EVs

In less than a year after state-run Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) floated a tender for 10,000 electric cars amid much fanfare, India’s EV growth story seems to be headed in a wrong direction.


Ssenior government officials have refused to use electric cars made by homegrown carmakers Mahindra and Tata Motors. The babus were claiming to be unhappy with the 80kms range of the car but the real reason obviously would be the huge allowance that the government staff get for using Petrol/Diesel cars.


We at PlugInCaroo feel the only way ahead would be to cancel the petrol allowance of every government staff who refuses to use electric vehicle because perhaps the staff finds the petrol vehicle more efficient and saves more money than the electric vehicle and thus he shouldn’t mind paying the petrol allowance from his own pocket.
