Sudden Reduction of Subsidy of Electric Two-Wheelers May Lead to Major Decline in EV Adoption in India

Society of Manufacturers of Electric Vehicles on Tuesday said the sudden reduction of subsidy of electric two-wheelers may lead to a major decline in EV adoption, impacting the entire industry for a considerable period of time. Startup players in the electric mobility space, however, welcomed the government’s decision saying it was time for the EV industry to stand on its own.
