The electric vehicle is a revolution in the automotive field. It is not just a wave of the future but an environmental saviour. Electric vehicles (EVs) use a promising technology for achieving a sustainable transport sector in the future, due to their very low to zero carbon emissions, low noise, high efficiency and flexibility in grid operation and integration. In this emerging sector, Tamil Nadu aspires to become one of the largest global bases for electric vehicles & smart mobility.
Tamil Nadu Government’s Electric Vehicle Policy 2023 is a remarkable step towards emboldening the adoption of EVs in the State. The progress of the EV sector has been propelled by policy measures and regulatory interventions.
The availability of charging stations is a pivotal component for EV adoption and as per Fame II (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles in India) a total of 281 charging stations have been sanctioned for Tamil Nadu, which will serve as an important improvement for charging infrastructure development.
To escalate the burgeoning EV ecosystem, the Government of Tamil Nadu has a vision of attracting Rs. 50,000 crore worth of investment in EV manufacturing, creation of 1.5 lakh new jobs and providing the necessary help in furthering Tamil Nadu’s position as a leading EV hub.
