According to the latest reports, NITI Aayog and the World Bank are collaborating towards establishing a $300 million 'first loss risk sharing instrument' aimed at facilitating quicker and easier financing for electric vehicles. The fund will, reportedly, look to garner roughly $1.5 billion in financing for EVs with the instruments acting as a hedging mechanism protecting banks from loan defaults on EV purchases. It will, reportedly, be institutionalised with the State Bank of India and funds will be made accessible to all financial institutions, said NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant. ,tennis quebec niveau
The latest revelation is yet another positive development in India's EV journey which until 2017 appeared to be littered with unaddressed issues. Questions over whether electrification could really take place on India's roads stemmed primarily from concerns over inadequate charging infrastructure, poor variety of EVs in the market, their higher prices, and technological uncertainties. ,indoor party games for adults
spanish 21 online free,However, in the last two years, significant progress has been made towards removing these barriers. The number of electric vehicles capable of travelling for distances comparable to their ICE counterparts has increased remarkably while major cities have seen an uptick in the number of charging points installed.

Those currently in the market are now, reportedly, just between 20 to 30 per cent more expensive than a comparable ICE vehicle – a price differential that is made up within a few years of the vehicle's use due to lower maintenance and running costs.

The Department of Heavy Industry has also earmarked Rs 1,000 crore towards the development of charging infrastructure within the country. Tata Power, in fact, already has 180 operation charging stations in 20 cities and is expected to ramp this up to 700 by March next year.
OEMs are also providing installation of charging points at consumers' homes – a solution that is likely to assuage the concerns of prospective EV buyers. According to a Kenneth Research study, the market for EV infrastructure in India is projected to grow at a staggering 40 per cent compound annual growth rate between 2019 and 2025.,casino chennai online booking
2021 is also likely to see a slew of new EV launches further expanding the affordable options available to consumers. A brief look back into the history of EV car sales in India may temper expectations with under 8,000 units sold over the last six years. However, it is important to note that 2,955 units sold in FY21 represented a 128 per cent rise from the previous year (when 1,295 units flew off the shelves). Moreover, while Tesla's Model 3 might be priced prohibitively for the average Indian with a per capita income of INR 5.6 lakh, options like the Nexon EV and the MG ZS EV are more moderately priced. ,ebay soccer gloves
volleyball world cup champions list,The Indian government has outlined its ambitions to replace 30 per cent of its automobile fleet with electric vehicles within the next decade. The concerted efforts being made towards this cause are, indeed, only likely to inspire hope among EV manufacturers. If India is serious about delivering on its pledge to reduce carbon emissions by 30 to 35 per cent over the next decade while reducing its reliance on crude oil imports, bolstering the EV industry will be critical.
