According to the Sachdeva, 42 percent of the total commercial vehicles ever sold worldwide happened in 2015. However,  in India, the electric car segment is still in an initial phase as it accounts for a very small share. In the fiscal year 2015, only 753 pure electric passenger vehicles were sold in India, compared to 1,76,627 units in China and 1,15,262 units in the USA.

"India needs to look at incentives for electric and hybrids again. In China, almost half of the cost of the green vehicle was incentivised. Even though it need not be that high here, but it certainly has to be higher than what it is," said Sachdeva.
