Recently, Government’s has raised a proposal to set up electric car charging stations at distinct places to reduce the petrol and diesel expenditure in India. Introducing the concept of placing charging stations at distinct places has now boost up the electric car markets in India. As Charging an electric car’s batteries takes about 5 to 6 hours while charging the batteries to 80% takes about 30 minutes. So, charging outlets at petrol bunks might not be very effective as an electric car owner might not have 30 minutes to spare at the petrol bunk on a daily basis. Therefore, the system of swapping batteries at charging stations would be a more viable alternative, one that has the potential to make the electric cars as practical as petrol/diesel powered ones.

A senior official in the department of heavy industries said: “To increase acceptance of electric and hybrid vehicles, it is crucial to build consumer confidence through creation of requisite infrastructure. In every city where there is a sizeable population of electric vehicles (EVs), we will provide charging points following a grid pattern. OMCs can set up charging infrastructure. It is an economically viable proposition.”

He added that the details of the investment required for setting up the charging infrastructure for EVs will be frozen over the next two months. “We are also developing a model through which we can use renewable energy for charging EVs. We can set up solar panels at charging stations and charge the cars without eating into the electricity supply. In the next one-two years, these public charging stations would be put in place”, added the official.

Let's wait for it's approval and hope to see electric car guiding the Indian roads.
