This is great news to be carried away by but it raises a few questions as well. While the concept car looks futuristic and designed for intra-city short commutes how will it fare in the absence of a supporting ecosystem in India?. Costs of ownership will also dictate market demand as much as post sales service and spares. All these critical factors nearly put the daylights (or should we say volts!) out of India's only creditable EV4W (electric four wheeler) that did its rounds across the country for almost a decade. Energy friendly as it may have been it was not a 'car for the masses' with its huge price tag and high costs of ownership. This is the waiting market scenario that GM will be entering. Surely it is going to take more than brand power to ignite and sustain interest in their electric cars proposed for launch (time uncertain) in India. However,with the electric tide slowly gaining momentum worldwide and in Asia too (with the sad exception of India) it is equally likely that this new entrant can bring about a reversal both in public attitudes to electric vehicles and market fortunes.This is what we at EVfuture hope for..<a href="http://evfuture.org/indian-news/38-branded-electric-cars-for-india.html">Read more</a></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><br /> </p> Action on the fringes! http://www.evfuture.com/?link=1888 2013-03-17 07:20:09 http://www.evfuture.com/?link=1888 While everyone is looking out for developments in the automobile and personal transportation sectors,the real action seems to be taking place on the sidelines away from public gaze. There is a silent but steadily evolving revolution happening in the small worlds of specialised commercial vehicles that are becoming rapidly and successfully electric. These include golf carts, garbage trucks and forklifts. Personal mobility devices for the aged and the infirm are also going electric in a very big way with significant market potential. Airline companies and the military are also developing,testing and releasing a multitude of applications that will become the new electric standards of their genre tomorrow. <a href="http://evfuture.org/world-news/37-small-stridesbig-leaps.html">Read More</a> Where have the bicycles gone? http://www.evfuture.com/?link=1887 2013-02-28 14:29:33 http://www.evfuture.com/?link=1887 <br />India along with China account for more than half of bicycles made worldwide . While China still has an active bicycling culture, it is not as robust here in India. Upward social mobility, poor roads countrywide and traffic congestion are the chief reasons for the decline of the bicycle,which remained the most used form of personal transportation a full decade and more after independence. However, there is a revival in the form of fitness cycling even though Indian roads are not congenial to cycling as a hobby or for fitness, much less commuting.<br />Indian bicycle makers are seeking to take advantage of this growing niche and preparing a slew of products from their stables that include high end electric and sports bicycles. They are also considering affordable electric cycles for the masses. Is the wheel coming full circle?.<a href="http://evfuture.org/indian-news/36-pedal-powerawaiting-reinvention.html"> Read more &gt;</a> Sputtering out? http://www.evfuture.com/?link=1568 2013-02-02 09:45:18 http://www.evfuture.com/?link=1568 <br />Given the momentum and hopes of the past five years the LEV market in India was looking like it was on an upswing. But the truth is otherwise. The LEV (Light Electric Vehicles comprising scooters,bikes and cycles) industry and market in India is critically slowing down due to a host of factors. Innovation and adaptation hold the keys to a revival along with supportive government policies and statutes. Or else India could miss the electric revolution when it comes and will have to spend valuable time and money in playing catch up with the rest of the world.<br /><br />We at EvFuture bring you an overview of the current LEV industry and market in India.<a href="http://evfuture.org/indian-news/34-losing-spark.html"> Read More&gt;</a> A matter of political will! http://www.evfuture.com/?link=1406 2012-12-10 09:50:58 http://www.evfuture.com/?link=1406 <style type="text/css"> <!-- @page { margin: 2cm } P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm; direction: ltr; color: #00000a; widows: 0; orphans: 0 } P.western { font-family: "Times New Roman", serif; font-size: 12pt; so-language: en-GB } P.cjk { font-family: "WenQuanYi Micro Hei"; font-size: 12pt; so-language: zh-CN } P.ctl { font-family: "Lohit Hindi"; font-size: 12pt; so-language: hi-IN } --> </style> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm" class="western">While the market is indeed a great leveler serving to extend the reach of products and services exponentially, it is not always a great incubator of new and infant technologies,particularly when immediate pay-offs are not visible. This is where governmental support becomes crucial for the maturing of sunrise technologies. The governments of China and Denmark are setting milestones in their commitment to electric vehicle technologies through supporting R&amp;D and incorporating them into their cities' transportation fleets. These governments see themselves as becoming part of a new breed of green cities with zero emissions as their final goal. <a href="http://evfuture.org/world-news/32-the-rise-of-zero-discharge-nations-pt1.html">Read More</a> about the rise of these zero emission nations on our blog.<br /></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm" class="western"> <br /></p>
