Plan to launch EV in India by 2022 but ecosystem is a must: Renault

Currently, Tata Motors offers its Tigor EV, while Mahindra & Mahindra has Verito electric sedan in the mass segment in India.

French auto major Renault on August 28 said it will bring electric vehicle (EV) in India by 2022 but wants the government to aggressively develop ecosystem "before any forced" launches in the country.

Stating that India is still not equipped with the ecosytstem for EVs, Renault India Operations Country CEO and MD Venkatram Mamillapalle said launching EVs now and "having the cars in the garages makes no sense".

"We are venturing into EV space. You will definitely see something coming up by 2022, but before I say that we want to enter into the EV segment, the most important thing is the ecosystem," he told reporters here.

Mamillapalle said India is still not equipped with the ecosystem for EV cars, adding "launching EV cars even now in India is halo".
