Hybrid vehicles should be considered as key aspect in India’s journey to future mobility, Niti Aayog member VK Saraswat said Sunday.
Moving towards electric vehicles directly from internal combustion engine (ICE) need proper infrastructure, and it will take time, Saraswat further said.
Introduction of EV technology should begin with two-wheelers and three-wheelers for short-haul journeys, he added.
“There is a sequence in which activity has to go. Sequence is today, you have 100 per cent system working on internal combustion engine (ICE).
“You are introducing a battery technology directly today. It will take time for the battery technology because it needs supporting infrastructure capacity,” Saraswat told.
