Catalysing the market transformation of electric two-wheelers in India

Electric two-wheelers are poised to become the primary clean mobility alternative, and efforts to facilitate their adoption must be prioritised. There is an imminent need to address the critical barriers in their value chains. Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy (AEEE) and International Copper Association India (ICA India) have collaborated on this whitepaper to identify the critical issues for facilitating the increased adoption of electric two-wheelers in India. For the whitepaper, a consumer perception consultation was conducted with electric vehicle (EV) users and internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle owners, as well as an overview of electric two-wheeler technology classification and, a review of national and state-level policies and schemes. AEEE and ICA India also carried out stakeholder consultations on various topics impacting electric two-wheeler adoption.
