Under the plans of present Government, every car sold in India would be electric from the year 2030. This new plan has completely dismayed the oil industry while delighting the environmentalists. It is assumed that by banning the diesel and petrol cars in the upcoming years, the country would be able to decrease all the harmful effects of air pollution, which also contributes to the death of around 1.2 million people every day.
The concept of alternate day driving has already been implemented in the capital city of India and these interventions have actually enjoyed a moderate level of success. But opting for the fleet of complete electric vehicles would definitely have a greater environmental impact.
At the same time, it has also been calculated that choosing electric vehicles over the petrol and diesel ones will also help in decreasing the carbon emission by 37% within the period of 2030.
The future of the petrol and diesel cars
Not only in India, but as per the new plans, no more diesel or petrol cars or public vehicles will be seen anywhere in this world within the next 8 years.
The total market for transportation in the land will convert to electrification resulting in a collapse of the prices of crude oils as well as in the sad demise of the petroleum industry.
The recent sales figure for the petrol and diesel cars are also showing that drivers are actually losing their faith in these oils and they have already started turning to cleaner alternatives, one of which is electric. Besides, more and more people are not opting for cleaner vehicles as they don’t want to complicit in the pollution issues of the cities and also don’t want to condemn the future of their kids to the health impacts that these crude oil causes.
India is thinking of phasing out all diesel and petrol cars by the year 2032 while leap-frogging China in the race of electrification of vehicles. Besides, the prime minister of India has also called for blended subsidies including caps and car-pooling on the fossil-based vehicles. Here the main aim is to break reliance on the imported oils as well as to decrease pollution.
