'Electric Mobility Pavilion', the section which displayed hybrid/ electric technology and vehicles from various vehicle and component manufacturers with the objective to demonstrate the level of industry’s readiness as a prelude to the roll out of NEMMP schemes.

The pavilion was innaugurated by the honorable minister of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises, Mr. Praful Patel. The exhibits at Theme Pavilion include Maruti Suzuki Swift RE, Toyota Kirloskar Camry Hybrid, Tata Motor’s Iris and Magic, TVS Motors E-Scooter and E-3Ws, Hero Eco E-Scooter, Mahindra & Mahindra E2O and Maxximo.
The pavilion also displayed various concepts of Hybrid Automobiles, and will hold sessions educating visitors about the nuances of Electric Technology along with a practical experience of driving electric cars and two wheelers giving consumers a first-hand experience of the vehicles. 

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Vinod Dasari, Vice President of SIAM and Managing Director, Ashok Leyland Limited said “As a result of growing GDP, India’s primary energy consumption is expected to increase by 70% in the next ten years. The gap between domestic crude oil production and consumption is widening, leading to increase in imports and consequent impact on the trade deficit. Thus, Electric Mobility Pavilion will set a milestone to create awareness amongst consumers. This has come as a part of the composite communication strategy espoused under the National Mission on Electric Mobility.

“Test drive of these electric vehicles will allow consumers to have a real life feel of these technology vehicles. This initiative shows commitment from both industry and Government of India towards sustainable mobility,” he added.

NMEM is amongst the significant interventions of the Government that promises to transform the automotive paradigm of the future by lessening the dependence on fossil fuels, increasing energy efficiency of vehicles and by providing the means to achieve ultimate objective of cleaner transportation that is compatible with sustainable renewable energy generation. The implementation and roll out of the NEMMP 2020 will be done through various specific schemes, interventions, policies that are currently under formulation and will be considered by the Government in the near future.
