Evo India - - LAUNCHES -

THE UNION MIN­IS­TER for Road Trans­port and High­ways, Nitin Gad­kari, is de­ter­mined to see an elec­tric fu­ture. And it ap­pears he has in­deed man­aged to bull­doze his min­istry into chalk­ing out such a roadmap. “Al­ready we are in the process of a cab­i­net note where we are go­ing to plan charg­ing sta­tions. It is in the last stage and will be done as early as pos­si­ble,” he an­nounced at the 57th an­nual con­ven­tion of SIAM. While In­dia awaits her elec­tric fu­ture, for the rest of the world e-mo­bil­ity seems to be the present. Take the re­cent Frank­furt Mo­tor Show. From BMW to Volk­swa­gen, ev­ery­one who had a pavil­ion was busy show­cas­ing e-so­lu­tions. Mean­while, across the world in Ja­pan, the Re­nault-Nis­san Al­liance was also busy show­cas­ing the new gen­er­a­tion of the Nis­san Leaf elec­tric hatchback. In this brand new ‘e-Brief­ing’ sec­tion, ev­ery month we will look at all that’s hap­pen­ing in the elec­tric mo­bil­ity sec­tor – in In­dia and abroad. This month we have a roundup of all the elec­tric stuff from Frank­furt, de­tailed pre­view of the Leaf and news of Maruti Suzuki’s dec­la­ra­tion that it too will build an e-car.
