Abstract

Electric cars are becoming increasingly popular in India due to their environmental benefits and cost-effectiveness in the long run. The interest in electric transportation infrastructure has been renewed because of the environmental impact of the fossil fuel-based transportation infrastructure, along with the rising oil prices. Diversification of fuels in transport sector and energy security issues are addressed by electrifying transportation and facilitating the transition to sustainable energy. Due to their extremely low to zero carbon emissions, low noise, and excellent efficiency, EVs are a technology that holds promise for creating a sustainable transportation industry. Electric vehicles (EVs) are the future of transportation, and governments worldwide are pushing for faster adoption. However, despite governments introducing EV policies, the market adoption of EVs is very low. Consumer buying behavior along with their perceptions towards electric vehicles in India will be examined in this paper. This paper examines the potential market for electric cars in India and evaluate consumer attitudes toward them.
