  7. Future is driven by Sustainable practice. India’s effort towards a Sustainable Living environment is finally taking a realistic outlook with Government initiatives on curbing air pollution becoming stringent with the activation of several reforms and laws that can secure a Green future for everyone. With the replacement of coal-fired power plants with renewable energy sources and the introduction of several policies for keeping a tab on the air quality, the urgency for e-mobility has never looked so much important before. According to the 2019 World Air Quality Report, 17 Indian cities rank among the world’s 25 most polluted cities, to safeguard the future Government has implemented steps towards a cleaner environment with strong policies related to the transportation department. The transport minister has stated that India would adapt and move to 100% electric cars by the year 2030 in consonance with the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan presented by India empowering electric vehicles that meet customer performance and cost possibilities through collaboration among Government and different industries for the improvement of infrastructure, consumer awareness, and innovation to progress the future of EV Two Wheeler and Four Wheeler market on the sector. The complete adoption of EV will lead to a healthier environment due to their beneficial factors: · EV’s are environment Friendly with Zero Carbon emissions · Help in upholding health benefits with reduced harmful exhaust emissions · EVs are also quieter than petrol/diesel vehicles, which means less noise pollution · Enabling Energy Security with reduction of dependency on foreign oil. EVs are easy to power from local and renewable energy sources · EVs improve local air quality by centralizing emissions at power plants, and they are more efficient overall than vehicles powered by fossil fuels · EV Charging advances Sustainability Charging stations can run on renewable energy to keep pushing down emissions and electricity costs related to charging. Following the Leap: As e-mobility strengthens its root in the Indian landscape and increase in Government reforms are visible: 1. India plans to offer $4.6 billion in incentives to companies setting up advanced battery manufacturing facilities as it seeks to promote the use of electric vehicles and cut down its dependence on oil. 2. India plans to retain its import tax rate of 5% for certain types of batteries, including batteries for electric vehicles, until 2022 but will increase it to 15% thereafter to promote local manufacturing. 3. Launch of Smart Cities program for enabling the adoption of EV and other e-mobility options, and EV charging and parking bays. 4. The 2020 National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) proposed by the Department of Heavy Industries in 2012 set its goal to encourage the faster adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles in the country through government-industry collaborations, to allow India to emerge as a leader in EV manufacturing by 2020. Conclusion As EV adoption takes a faster pace in the mobility sector, quicker approach in assembling the components to establish the charging solutions is the need of the hour and must be acted upon on an immediate basis. As the manufacturers of lithium batteries increase day by day with established EV battery providers switching to lithium instead of lead-acid for backup support, many newcomers in the industry are setting up their assets for entering the highly competitive market with the best product. VSL Energy Storage located in Kolkata is one among the many manufacturers of EV Batteries, who are all set to launch their first Lithium-ion batteries for EV 2 Wheelers and 3 Wheelers which will be equipped with the latest chemistries and technological advancements required in the field.VSL Energy Storage
  8. The facelifted Innova has been revealed for the Indonesian market.

  9. But Toyota has got into some agreement with Suzuki, so they share their models globally and may be even they share service network. So that is like a soft merger. In India it is lower end that sells compared to developed countries. And Hyundai and Suzuki make good low priced cars.
  10. Volkswagen has just revealed a new compact SUV, the Taos, for the US market. It will sit below the Tiguan in Volkswagen's US line-up. As for dimensions, it measures in at 4,465 mm long, 1,841 mm wide and 1,636 mm tall. It will be powered by an EA211 1.5 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine (that is also used for the Jetta in the US). Outputs are 158 hp and 249 Nm of torque. What do you think of it? Visually it's nearly identical to the Tharu which is sold in China.

  13. A new star. Honda's latest compact crossover SUV model, Has been in production since 2016. In Southeast Asia, reputation is small. In the global SUV car market, it still doesn't occupy a place. Because it hasn't been launched globally. It fights alone in Indonesia. Accumulating popularity Its unique features are Modern luxury appearance with SUV For the Indonesian market Expanding interior space (7 seats) High fuel efficiency Manual transmission, smooth displacement As a new product, it is not without flaws Front wheel drive, no off-road function Even if the appearance inherits the tough line of the SUV But less punchline Honda BR-V harga : Rp 251,2 Million to Rp 293,8 Million

  15. I heard that the Lali 458 Speciale broke 100Km in 3 seconds? Although 5 years have passed, Ferrari has produced many new sports cars, but this speed is still commendable 5 years ago. If you like Ferrari in India, last year's new sports car Ferrari Portofino is also very good! ! And it also has a red color scheme, which is cool, and the 458 looks very handsome.

    Kia sonet is a good and comfortable SUV as compare to nexon, venue. It's look is also pretty cool 🤠.
  17. With 20 ton trucks the kilometer-ton cost is Rs:1-2 Therefore I was wondering how much more costly the Light Heavy Vehicle would be on long haul - highway driving. Ace Gold/super/Plus can carry around 1 ton max but how efficient is it? https://forum.autocarindia.com/topic/919-tata-ace-1-t/?_fromLogin=1 (it feels a bit weird asking in 'Cars' but apparently it's allowed)
  18. Please suggest tyres for Maruti Swift Dzire ZXI 2010 model existing tyre185/70 R14 88 S VECTRA .One tyre is damaged sideway . Want cheaper options.Can i change only 2 ?
  19. Received these images on Whatsapp showing the new Thar, which is due to launch in the coming months. With its positioning also expected to be as a lifestyle vehicle, in a similar move to the Thar. Which one would you prefer? From what's known, both have their own unique points on paper. However, while the actual comparison will have to wait, which do you think looks better of the two?
  20. Hello friends, I am going for my first long drive on my eon era plus 2012, I will be covering approx 600 Kms, can eon run this much in a single stretch? How many stops I must take in between? Any emergency kit required?
  21. A car dealer in my town is offering a 2015 Creta S petrol for 7.7 Lakhs. I know 2015 is way too old for this price but interesting part is it has run only for 9000 KMs so far. I need opinions on if it's going to be a value for money purchase. I am considering it because it's a petrol engine and I believe first 10 years of age is just a number of petrol engine if it hasn't been run much. If it's not value for money, what price do you guys think it's worth. Thanks in advance
  22. This is the reason why the Maruti Suzuki Swift 2016 model looks good, I still prefer the Maruti Suzuki Swift 2015. Thank you for your nice post and dedication! I am planning to buy a Maruti and I've made my decision!
  23. Advice on buying a second-hand Hyundai i20 2015? I am planning to buy a second-hand Hyundai i20 2015. However, I've just read some reviews and many recommend the Hyundai i20 2011 model. If you were me, which model would you choose to buy?

  25. The next-generation Maruti Celerio has been spotted testing once again. It's expected to launch by Diwali will be an all-new car from the ground up. The car had been spied testing earlier this year as well. It is expected to have a longer wheelbase and a wider cabin than the outgoing car. While the outgoing car was sold with a single, 1.0-litre petrol engine for most of its life, the new Celerio will likely come with two engine options . longside the 1.0-litre petrol will likely be the more powerful 1.2-litre K-series petrol.

  26. There is no word at present on when Hyundai plans to introduce the new Tucson in India. It may be a fair amount of time away, considering the facelifted third-gen Tucson was only launched in our market a few months ago. Toyota currently has no plans to bring the Harrier to India.
