ELECTRIC CAR BUSINESS WILL DIRECTLY EFFECT 200 BILLION DOLLARS!!!
Govt should black list such companies from its EV TENDER. Such companies are just putting a “FRONT” in promoting 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.

This is one car people will be proud to own! Post 2016 Indians will be proud of the vehicles Tata makes like Hexa, Nexon etc are all on par with other international car makers.
Yep… not tomorrow… cause tomorrow already has become yesterday… that’s the pace the Indian Govt seems to be working… at least on Paper.
Looks like PM Modi has some issues to settle with Elon Musk… for not taking his offer to Make in India. If India get this done… Elon could well become bankrupt… (ISRO already has half of Elon’s Pie).
As per the plan on paper India could have govt battery plant and battery swapping and charging stations by 2018… Gigawatt size plant by 2020… and all diesel and petrol vehicles will be “DEMONITIZED” by 2032!… lol that woke up a lot of sleeping petrol heads… Wake up guys… the petrol/diesel car you buy today will become JUNK in 5 years time.
For a govt that could demonetize 80% of a country’s currency overnight… this would be a walk in the park…
