The EV Capital of the country!
As on Feb 7 2022, Delhi has contributed to 25 percent of electric commercial vehicles sales in the country since 2019 (785 electric taxis out of the 1,609 units sold nationally and 1,068 electric goods carriers out of 4,035 units sold nationally).
The reasons behind this achievement are two fold:
- Delhi EV Policy offers the purchase and scrapping incentives over and above the incentives offered to EVs (Electric Vehicles) under the FAME-India phase-II scheme.
- Combined with the exemption of road tax and registration fees on EVs, the cost of owning and operating electric three-wheelers and electric taxis reduce by approximately 26 and 35 percent respectively.
