The power ministry would soon bring an electric vehicle(EV) charging infrastructure policy, which will also allow individuals to set up charging station for commercial use to boost e-mobility, said Power and New & Renewable Energy Minister R K Singh Sunday.
“We have circulated the EV Charging Policy for comments (among other department/ministries). The second line of the policy says that everybody is free to set up EV charging station,” Singh told reporters at International Symposium to Promote Innovation & Research in Energy Efficiency (Inspire).
When asked whether individuals would be able to use the facility on commercial basis, he replied, “Absolutely. You dont need a licence”.
Electric vehicles (EVs) are inevitable and as India leads up to EVs, Telangana based start-up, E-trio is now ready to launch retrofitted electric in India. E-trio is India first company to have successfully gotten approval from Govt run Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI). E-triowill first launch this on the electric Maruti Suzuki Alto and Wagon R.
People on the autoblogging sites have been going head over heels over the Mahindra Mojo Electric motorcycle. Is it a vehicle that has been designed as an electric motorcycle or has the MoJo motorcycle (that did not sell) got retrofitted into Electric motorcycle (just like most Mahindra electric cars)?
Mojo is the big flop motorcycle brand of Mahindra two wheelers which was launched in October 2015. Till date it has very little impact on the motorcycle market although rivals like Bajaj Dominar, etc continue to enjoy growth.
Earlier this year, they divided the Mojo range into two – XT300 and UT300, trying to make the brand accessible to more buyers in the segment… yet the sales have not improved.
