    India’s electric vehicle market is estimated at $xx Billion in 2020. The Indian EV battery market alone is estimated at $XX Billion.


    In 2020, Hero electric, Okinawa, Ampere and Ather held the market for EV two wheeler sales. For Passenger cars, Tata, Mahindra, and MG were the largest players.


    The three-wheeler market involved a large segment of unorganized players as well as the introduction of organized players such as Mahindra, Piaggio etc.



    COVID-19 severely affected the automotive industry, and the disruption of production and shutdown of plants due to multiple phases of lockdown imposed by the government had its impact on demand for electric cars, electric two-wheelers and electric three-wheelers. The supply of lithium-ion battery packs got impacted due to COVID-19 pandemic. This was followed by a clampdown by the government on shipments coming from China as India depends on China, which has a monopoly in lithium-ion cells, for making battery packs. The lack of interest shown by banks to finance electric vehicles also impacted the Indian EV market. However,the economic slowdown is impacting the environment, also creating new challenges for India’s clean energy transition including supply chain shortages,liquidity, financing constraints, job losses and reduced workforce. The concerns regarding the negative effect of climate change, along with the growing carbon emission in major cities have created a significant demand for electric vehicles in India.


    E-commerce companies such as Amazon launched e-Mobility for last-mile deliveries to reduce carbon footprint. India is already experimenting with e-Mobility for public transport, and the country has deployed electric intercity buses across some major cities. The EV market in India has gained significant momentum after the implementation of the FAME India scheme with its aim of shifting toward e-mobility in the wake of growing international policy commitments and environmental challenges. This will contribute to higher revenue collection through GST, export duties and will propel employment and economic progress of the country. With this opportunity, the government of India, OEMs and car makers should create an ecosystem to make India a manufacturing hub of EVs. To achieve this, India had pioneers in the lead acid batteries space like Exide Industries, Amara Raja Batteries, etc.,who can contribute to the plans of making and exporting EV components like Li-ion batteries in India will increase the growth of EV market.




    Maruti Suzuki’s parent company, Suzuki Motor Corp will enter the EV market by 2025, starting with the India market.
