Delhi eyes switching all vehicles to electric mode in 20 years
NEW DELHI: The Delhi government envisions to make all vehicles in the Capital switch to an all-electric mode in the next 20 years. Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said the state government was working with the Centre to attain the objective of electric mobility.
Delhi is soon going to launch a bus terminal, run 100 on an electric mode. "We will address all administrative issues. Technical issues are beyond us and we need to partner with the industry for that. We have to work together on this," Sisodia said. To address air pollution and to bring down the country's dependence on crude imports, the government has been working towards policies to support the adoption and utilisation of electric vehicles in India. Niti Aayog has outlined a vision to shift 100 percent of commercial vehicles used for intra-city transport and 40 percent of personal vehicles to an all-electric mode by 2030.
