1.10 lakh two-wheelers, 70 thousand three-wheelers and 20 thousand four-wheelers will come to the state in four years.
The consumption cost of e-vehicles is on average 30 to 50 percent less than other vehicles. So 2 lakh vehicles will save Rs 5 crore fuel. 6 million tonnes of carbon emissions will be reduced,
Electric vehicles are expensive. The common man cannot afford it. Rich people will buy 2 lakh vehicles. The minimum price of a two-wheeler is Rs 1.50 lakh. Which the common man cannot buy. The government will have to bear the burden of Rs 870 crore in 4 years.
