1st Smart Transport India 2016 expo to showcase "smart" technology and solutions in electric mobility; batteries and storage systems; electric vehicle charging; intelligent transport; alternate fuels; road traffic systems; smart city public transport systems; skilling; R&D and Make in India. The automotive sector, with a focus on electric vehicles, alternative fuel vehicles, self driving and connected cars, has paved the way for advanced and intelligent transport systems in the smart cities across the globe.
The need for electric mobility in India Globally, the automotive industry is passing from an era of the internal combustion engine to electric mobility on account of fast depletion of fossil fuels, increase in fuel cost, and the impact on environment degradation due to climatic change Fossil fuel based transportation is the second largest source of CO2 emission globally.
The transportation sector alone accounts for more than one-third of the total crude oil consumption and road transportation accounts for more than 80% of this consumption. In an emerging economy like India, the urgency to find viable alternatives for sustainable mobility is accentuated by rapid economic development, which is accelerating the demand for transportation in India.
The Government of India has announced a budget of Rs 1,400 crore over the next two years on incentives and subsidies for manufacturers and buyers of electric vehicles to target six million electric vehicles on Indian roads by 2020. To make this a reality, the government has announced a scheme named Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric vehicles in India (Fame India).
New technology and safety innovations cannot be implemented without help from local governments. For example, in India, the use of radars is not allowed in vehicles, and this will affect the features that OEM's can offer in their cars. There have been advancements in government regulation in India, and one big change is the implementation of the Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program. This program makes it mandatory for new cars sold in India to comply with voluntary star ratings based on-crash safety performance tests.
Another step is the government's initiative to make it compulsory for all new cars to be fitted with ABS (anti-braking system) and airbags. The law will come into affectlater this year, and even motorcycles will come with ABS as a standard fitment.
The government has also taken steps towards promoting environmentally friendly vehicles in India. With the start of the new FAME (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric vehicles) scheme throughout the country, the government is offering subsidies to buyers of electric and hybrid vehicles. The scheme has been formulated as part of the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan 2020 (NEMMP) unveiled in 2013 by the Union Government. This scheme will work towards achieving national fuel security, a globally competitive EV eco-system and an affordable, environment-friendly transportation system for the future.
