National E-Mobility Dashboard: Driving the Future of Clean Transport in India
The National E-Mobility Dashboard, launched by the Ministry of Power in collaboration with the National Institution for Transforming India (NITI) Aayog, aims to accelerate the transition to electric mobility in India by providing real-time data and insights into the growth of the sector. The dashboard provides a comprehensive overview of the electric vehicle (EV) market in India, including the number of EVs sold, charging infrastructure availability, and battery capacity.
The dashboard provides valuable insights into the progress of the EV sector in India, which has seen a significant increase in the adoption of electric vehicles in recent years. As of August 2021, there were 1.9 lakh (190,000) EVs sold in India, representing a growth of over 140% compared to the previous year. The total battery capacity of EVs sold in India reached 2.6 GWh in 2021, indicating a growing demand for EVs in the country.
The dashboard also provides information on the charging infrastructure available in the country, which is essential for the widespread adoption of EVs. As of August 2021, there were 2,900 public charging stations in India, with 8,891 charging points. The dashboard also provides information on the number of private charging stations and battery swapping stations in the country.
The dashboard also highlights the progress made by different states in promoting EVs, with Maharashtra, Delhi, and Karnataka leading in terms of EV sales. The dashboard provides state-wise information on EV sales, battery capacity, and charging infrastructure availability.
The National E-Mobility Dashboard also provides data on the emissions reduction potential of EVs in India. The dashboard estimates that the adoption of EVs in India could lead to a reduction of up to 14% in CO2 emissions by 2030.
The following table summarises the key statistics from the National E-Mobility Dashboard as of August 2021:
|Total EVs sold in India||1.9 lakh (190,000)|
|YoY growth in EV sales||140%|
|Total battery capacity of EVs sold||2.6 GWh|
|Public charging stations in India||2,900|
|Charging points at public stations||8,891|
|Private charging stations in India||1,352|
|Battery swapping stations in India||308|
|Maharashtra EV sales (cumulative)||48,295|
|Delhi EV sales (cumulative)||32,551|
|Karnataka EV sales (cumulative)||20,780|
|CO2 emissions reduction potential||Up to 14% by 2030|
The National E-Mobility Dashboard is an important tool for policymakers, industry stakeholders, and the public to monitor the growth of the EV sector in India and to identify areas for further development. With the increasing focus on clean energy and sustainability, the dashboard will play a crucial role in accelerating the transition to electric mobility and reducing carbon emissions in India.
