Mahindra Electric CEO Mahesh Babu said that it is not about new policies but what we need is action plan to implement it
Electric Mobility is the talk of the town as pollution is increasing day by day and it can be only reduced using EV or alternative fuel vehicles. We already know the government announced that there was plan to have 100 percent electric vehicles in public transport and 40 percent in personal mobility by 2030.
But the problem with government is that they don’t have a clear plan for the future as they tend to change the plans quickly without looking ahead. The FAME scheme is one of the good initiatives by the government to encourage alternative fuel vehicles but still they are not doing much according to the manufacturers when compared to other countries.

Mahindra Electric CEO Mahesh Babu said that it is not about new policies but what we need is action plan to implement it. He said it is more important to work in a cohesive manner in the direction of sustainable mobility inorderd to be globally competitive rather than seeking new technologies which is already available in India.
He also said that anything more is required as if we do it as a team – industry, government, stakeholders, customers and policy makers then we are in the right direction. There is no hurry but there is an urgent need to work on what we have to do to be globally competitive according to Mahesh Babu.
Recently the government introduced green licence plates with numbers in white font for private e-vehicles which will encourage more people to buy EVs. Soon the government will announce FAME scheme 2 policy which is expected to bring electric mobility more popular with the help of start ups.
Mahesh Babu also revealed that the company’s vision is to bring sustainable mobility to the masses and public transport. When asked about future products, he said Mahindra will bring more products in the future as they current launched five products. The company has also tied up with Uber, Ola and Zoomcar to further promote EVs as these vehicles are included in their fleet.
