The Indian government is pushing to electrify the public transport options in the country. Mahindra is already a leader in the segment with a diversified portfolio of electric vehicles. During the interview, Goenka revealed that around 4,000 electric buses would be on Indian roads in the next year. He also added that commercial viability for electric three and four wheelers has been established. The bottleneck, according to Goenka, is the cost of electric vehicles, which is more than that of its ICE counterparts available in the market.

Goenka also revealed that the company has over 22,000 electric buses on Indian roads. The company is also reportedly looking at shared mobility as an option and working with multiple governments. Hyundai Kona, which was launched at Rs 25.30 lakh (ex-showroom), has seen good response. MG ZS EV is expected to get even stronger response with competitive pricing. With Tata and Renault joining the fray soon with its Nexon EV and Zoe EV, the electric vehicle market is set to become a prominent one in the country.
