India is the world’s largest three-wheeler market. In 2020, India’s ICE three-wheeler market was estimated at more than USD 600 million. Over 15 million three-wheelers serve as the most important shared / public transport mode to millions of citizens in Indian cities. Three-wheelers not only offer convenient first / last mile connectivity in cities with metros/buses, but also as a primary transport option in rural areas, allowing people to commute to bus-stops or train-stations and highways. With their easy maneuverability and high fuel efficiency three-wheelers are not just serving as passenger carriers but also as one of the main urban freight carriers in Indian cities.
However, due to a growing concern over air pollution in India, the government is pushing the automobile industry to reduce its carbon footprint. Come join the discussion on how the Indian Government and the private sector are working towards electrifying this important segment.
