SMC gears up for the EV phase, adds fresh investments of around Rs 3,800 crore in Gujarat to add a third production unit.

Quote:
Additionally, it also announced, along with its partners Toshiba and Denso, an investment of around Rs 1,150 crore for a new unit to produce lithium ion batteries — a first by an auto firm in the country.
The Li-ion battery plant which will be operational by 2020.

SMC intends to build its Hybrid and Electic Vehicles in India for exports. The EV vehicle and its technology is rumored to be the outcome with its alliance partner Toyota.

Quote:
The batteries will be used for “hybrid vehicles manufactured in India and export these genuinely manufactured in India vehicles to international market

The average electric car has 50 kWh battery for 350km range. (Tesla model3 is used for calculation). This can be charged form 240V ac 32 A socket in the house. Per hour charge gives it 48 km range. Hence it takes roughly 7 hours to fully charge it. If you you charge the battery one time you will consume 50 units. If we assume Tesla figures at the maximum, that is 240 V and 16 A (it will be less than 32 A and it varies with time), it corresponds to 3.8 kW. Let us say, in a small city, there are 50,000 cars are being charged at the same time (in 2030 of course!, mostly in night time), the peak power demand will be 190 MWe ( an average power plant size). I wonder how many such cities are there and how many power plants we have to build during these 13 years, which would give base load power in the night?!!!That too clean power!

Lets Forget about the Environmentally Friendly part.. even then fossil fuel will run out of reserves one day.

What then? Its better to invest and spend time right now to find alternatives.

The Minister mellows down the earlier ' high pitch' tone on EV's. Coins in 'alternative ' fuel based vehicles to be promoted.

The government has asked automakers to develop vehicles that run on alternative fuels and fuel companies to develop bio-fuels, but doesn't intend to shut their business even as India pushes the pedal to the metal on its electric vehicle ambitions.

The biggest challenge to move to electric mobility is the price of electric vehicle, which continues to be high due to expensive batteries

This is a welcome statement and definitely a right vision from our policy makers. But the challenge is humongous when 25% (45 million) of rural households across the country still have no electricity (link). Even the mega cities have regular power outage. 37% of schools in India have no electricity (link).

In my opinion, first milestone should be 100% electricity for basic needs followed by 100% communication network (phone and internet). Only then we can promise 100% wireless economy and 100% e-vehicle.

In the meanwhile, the policies should be aligned per their vision, we cannot promise 100% e-vehicle and increase taxes on full hybrid vehicles which serve the transformation from internal combustion to fully electric vehicles.

Back to the 100 % EV story!

India will stick to plan of having 100% electric mobility by 2030 says Minister!

Quote:
The official year for going all electric — which means all vehicles sold from then will be electric — remains 2030, the minister said. However, a top official said the government was aiming to advance the target.

All the talks about Li battery cost and the number of charging stations. What about the power to charge them? How to double the installed capacity with clean energy in 20 years? Are they even aware of the expected surge including e vehicle and growth surge?

The Power Mantri want the maximum custom for his wares. While it may be relatively easier to upgrade the A (and higher) roads it is the B (and even more so) C roads. So I do not expect his hopes being realized that fast.

I respect the Idea that the minister has proposed. But the proposed time would grossly be inadequate w.r.t the population density we have. At the current scenario where power theft is rampant, are you sure those charging sockets would be free of encroachment?

100% electrification of vehicles by 2030? Yeah. Right!

Just saw this article on economic times dot com.

General Motors has just signed the death warrant for your petrol car

Future is EV no doubt but when the world will actually be ALL EV for transportation is a debatable question. But the countdown towards the end of the ICE era has begun.
