Abstract

The Indian government is urgently promoting electric vehicles (EVs) to help curb the country’s urban air pollution — the world’s worst, according to the World Health Organization. The steep increase in vehicle sales in recent years has brought deteriorating air quality and made India the third-highest oil consuming and greenhouse gas (GHG) emitting country in the world.
