India: Adopt electric technology fast, PM tells auto units

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, on Wednesday, asked vehicle manufacturers to adopt electric technologies fast to reduce dependence on imported oil and supplement efforts for a greener transport system.

“It is important that we make efforts for reducing the transport sector’s dependence on oil. One of the ways in which this can be achieved is by faster adoption of the full range of electric vehicle technologies, including hybrid vehicles,” he said after unveiling the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan 2020 here.

The mission involves a total investment of over Rs.23,000 crore which would be equally shared by the government and the auto industry. Over 80 per cent of the country’s requirement of petroleum products was met through imports.
