Our Natural resources (petrol and diesel) are getting scarce by the day. Automobile manufacturers are focusing on developing new Electric Vehicles (EV) as it is said that electric is the future of mobility. EVs cost so much because manufacturers have to import the batteries and the motor and assemble it here.
The cost of production per car increases due to the import duty and taxes. However, our Union Minister, Nitin Gadkari while addressing a webinar on India's electric vehicle roadmap post Covid-19 said that our country should no longer depend on China for the EV parts and instead focus on research and innovation to ramp up domestic manufacturing.
The Union Minister also said that the present prices of Chinese goods are really attractive and Indian electric vehicle companies are earning good profits by importing parts. On the other hand, when the industry will achieve good production they will charge more for the same product. He also mentioned that self-dependence on everything is the key to success for this industry.
In Other recent Auto news, A team of students (called as E-ight) of Mechanical Engineering, Vidyavardhaka College of Engineering (VVCE), Mysore, have developed an EV based that is based on the Tata Nano and it costs less than a brand new Royal Enfield Classic 350, which is Rs 1,55,000 ex-showroom.
This electric Tata Nano has a range of about 40 km with a single person on board and an operational cost of just Rs 1.15 per kilometre, which makes it extremely affordable for a daily driver. However, with four people in the car, the range reduces to 35 km on a single full charge and the per kilometre cost comes to around Rs 1.32.
The Nano EV has a top speed of 40 km with a single person on board. With more people on board, the speed varies between 35 to 40 km. The car takes about 6 hours and 36 minutes to charge completely from zero. Quick charging is not available as it costs a lot more.
Thoughts About Not Importing EV Parts From China
Well, importing car parts, especially EV parts, costs a lot of money. That is one of the reasons that electric vehicles cost so much in our country. Our Union Minister has said the right thing that our country should no longer depend on China for the EV parts and instead focus on research and innovation to ramp up domestic manufacturing.
