TVS Motor Company Head says that electric two-wheelers are a long way to go and cannot be forced on the customers as well as manufacturers
In other news, Venu Srinivasan, Chairman of TVS Motor Company
said in a press statement. “Automakers everywhere are supportive of the overall goal of introducing electric vehicles (EV) and easing consumers into electric mobility. As a result, we have been doing serious development work to ensure we can offer a mass market EV product that delivers on safety and high performance.”
He continued, “This is necessary to co-opt consumers into making a switch, so it’s driven by consumer willingness and, therefore, adopted easily and widely. The supporting infrastructure for charging also needs to be as robust as conventional fuel options. The auto industry globally is still a long way away from all of this, as is India.”
India needs to work on electric vehicle charging stations infrastructure before forcing companies to switch to electric two-wheelers.
He further added. “To force an unrealistic deadline for mass adoption of electric two and three wheelers, will not just create consumer discontent. It risks derailing auto-manufacturing in India that supports 4 million jobs. We need gradual and seamless adoption of EVs to avoid such collateral damage and ensure our technology-driven disruption is positive and lasting.”
