The Electric Car may get a jump-start of Rs 50,000

The government of India is planning to encourage the purchase of electric vehicles with the rebates of up to Rs 50,000. The government is bidding to promote the manufacture and sale of EVs in India so that they can eventually compromise 15% of total sales from the current negligible share in the next five years.
Indian Government is banking on cleaner energy sources to help clean up its polluted cities. To provide adequate charging facilities, the extensive infrastructure development will be needed to ensure that this isn't a constraint for adoption. 
The most significant factor for the slow-selling of electric vehicles is their high price, which is around 2 to 2.5 times more than a conventional vehicle. Another concern is the range per charge. But the electric car has a significant advantage in terms of operating cost, which can be as low as one-fourth of a conventional vehicle.
The electric four-wheelers witnessed a drop in FY18 to 1,200 units from 2,000. SIAM data showed that the total passenger's vehicles sold in India in FY18 stood at 3.3 million units while total two-wheelers sales amounted to 2.02 million units
