Maybe this triggers the launch of more hybrids here in India. This is the quickest way to get a higher fleet efficiency for any auto company. For Indian driving conditions, nothing can beat the hybrid technology w.r.t. current options available in the market.

They have to increase the mileage by 2kmpl. That should not be a big challenge. Companies like Toyota and Honda can make their hybrid or plug ins available in India just to make sure the average improves, right? (but price it astronomically higher with CBU ) There are too many loopholes that companies can take advantage of.

The manufacturers are bound to be unhappy. After the initial adverse reactions such laws in the US and EU have helped to improve the fuel efficiencies across the board. Most manufacturers now have essentially the same engine across various markets so tweaking should definitely be on, and this may encourage this happening sooner.
