About 50 percent of Indian consumers are now open to buying EVs, albeit with a caveat, while 54 percent of consumers are still concerned about EV quality, a report showed on Monday, adding that EV range anxiety now appears to be a misperception.
As per the report by CyberMedia Research( CMR), the consumers aren’t flinching down from EVs owing to’ EV range anxiety’ or’ outspoken costs’, or’ limited EV charging structure’. ” For long, limited EV charging structure and range anxiety have been demonstrated as walls for EV relinquishment. still, automotive OEMs have formerly designed EVs with a sufficient range of over to 200 kms or further,” said John Martin, critic, smart mobility practice, CMR.
” The implicit consumer for EVs is more concerned by the overall EV quality. EV quality includes not just external figure quality but refers to the overall quality of internal factors used- including battery and others,” Martin added. With a strong government policy drive, including its flagship EV scheme, faster adoption and manufacturing of electric vehicles( FAME), and further automotive OEMs prioritizing EVs, India’s EV instigation is gaining instigation.
India’s EV charging structure is accelerating, with further public EV charging stations coming up. Near,cross-industry collaborations in the EV ecosystem will also contribute to the ramping-up of charging structure.
“Driven by ongoing policy thrust at the central and state situations for EV structure development, alongwith upstream R&D in battery development will insure a significant supplement in ramping- upe-mobility. For OEMs, the focus should be on nonstop mindfulness generation around the quality and eventuality of EVs,” John noted.
