Fu­ture in sight

Commercial Vehicle - - LETTERS -

Watch­ing In­dia’s lead­ing com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle ma­jor Tata Motors un­veil a slew of next gen prod­ucts is heart warm­ing. In the coun­try that is bur­dened with a pop­u­la­tion of 1.36 bil­lion and still count­ing, en­sur­ing ef­fi­cient, in­te­grated travel still re­mains a te­dious task. Buses are still the face of mass trans­port in In­dia and need to con­trib­ute to a greener to­mor­row. Es­pe­cially in metro cities like Delhi, Mum­bai and Ben­galuru. Al­ter­nate propul­sion medi­ums have gained a lot of ac­co­lades out­side In­dia and I be­lieve it won’t be far off when one would be able to see elec­tric, fuel cell and hy­brid buses vy­ing for a place of pride on In­dian roads. Any re­duc­tion in bat­tery costs will only set the course for bet­ter and ex­cit­ing tech­nolo­gies.
