In the recent issue of BW Businessworld releasing on June 17, 2023, addresses the adoption of EVs in the country and the effects of subsidy cuts as well as the sluggish growth in EV infrastructure threatening to further impede the progress.
The issue sheds light on the EV industry’s positive side, with over a million EVs sold in the country in the previous fiscal year, as well as the challenges and roadblocks the industry faced in terms of growth on electric two-wheeler adoption following subsidy cuts and its infrastructure. To demonstrate the significance of the situation, the BW Businessworld team reached out to auto industry professionals for their perspectives on the current state of the EV business and the ratio for which speedy investment in charging infrastructure is required.

In an exclusive interview with BW Businessworld, R.C. Bhargava, Chairman of Maruti, underlines the company’s supremacy in the SUV and EV segments of the markets. Bhargava goes on to discuss how they are aiming for a 25 per cent market share this year with SUVs and have a clear intention to create a significant splash in the EV category between 2024-25. He also disclosed that Maruti is expecting to launch six EVs in a span of six years, debuting a new model every year starting from 2024. Adding to it, he also contends that the expansion of Indian car industry is likely to grow as to become the third largest in the world in a span of three years and Maruti will be playing a key part to make this happen.
