e-2 Wheelers, electric vehicle, India

New Delhi, October 18, 2023: The Union Minister for Power and New & Renewable Energy, R. K. Singh launched a brand-new EV-Ready India Dashboard (evreadyindia.org) in New Delhi on October 16, 2023. Developed by policy and industry experts at think-tank OMI Foundation, the dashboard is a free digital platform focussed on near real-time Electric Vehicles adoption and forecasts, associated battery demand, charging density, and market growth trends.

The dashboard is expected to facilitate greater inclusion across audiences, for the industry, policymakers and end users of electric vehicles. The platform leverages the power of data and AI and seeks to address the need for macroeconomic data and analysis on India’s massively growing electric mobility segment. The EV-Ready India dashboard has forecast a 45.5% Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) in electric vehicles between calendar year (CY) 2022 and CY 2030, increasing from annual sales of 6,90,550 electric two-wheelers (E2Ws) in 2022 to 1,39,36,691 E2Ws in 2030.

Key Features of the EV-Ready India Dashboard:

  1. For the policymakers and industry, the dashboard presents consolidated sales data for all 34 Vahan states and Union Territories, and the additional Telangana. The data is visualised for easy understanding of adoption rates and trends presented by time period, form factors, states, and more.
  2. The dashboard shows forecasts on EV adoption, and associated battery demand till 2030, allowing both policymakers and industry alike to strategize and execute their clean mobility goals. In addition to pan-India projections, the dashboard presents state-wise projections, in a first-of-its-kind approach.
  3. For the end user, i.e. the (potential) buyer of EVs, the dashboard shows financial benefits of EV ownership, including potential savings on upfront costs, operating and maintenance costs, etc. On the click of a button, the user can also review the list of EV models that are eligible for subsidies and the quantum of such subsidy.
  4. It also includes a comprehensive repository of all policies and regulations covering all value chains of the EV ecosystem. The policy module helps states compare their policies, update them based on their competitive advantages,
  5. For users, industry, and policymakers alike, the dashboard presents a comprehensive overview of charging infrastructure covering both charging stations and points across the country. Additionally, the dashboard shows the density of charging points with respect to EVs on the road. This module also shows charging tariffs allowing states to improve their rates vis-a-vis others,
  6. By tracking and benchmarking investments across EV value chains such as vehicle manufacturing, battery technology, battery recycling or urban mining, etc., and research and development, the dashboard maps the contributions to India’s economic growth and job creation.
  7. The dashboard, further, measures India’s journey towards net zero by tracking emissions avoided due to accelerated EV adoption across the length and breadth of the country.
  8. Lastly, the dashboard presents news and blogs on EV adoption and data-driven decision-making pertaining to all value chains of the EV ecosystem in a single place.

The launch event also featured a panel discussion around “Data-Driven Decision Making in the EV Sector”.
