More On EVs
India only had 650 charging stations as per official reports in 2018. The average on-road price of electric vehicles in India is not attractive enough for consumers and EV startups and auto majors are simply caught between reducing EV costs and spending money to boost infrastructure. In such situations, the biggest problems faced by the entire industry is charging time and range, both these factors decide the practicality and could lead to a boost in EV sales in future. This step from Okaya to help establish electric vehicle charging stations across the country, for Blu-smart, should definitely be a leading cause for boost in EV sales in the future.
