We highly appreciate and whole-heartedly support the government’s vision of a more sustainable and environment-friendly future. At Hero MotoCorp, we are unequivocally aligned with the Government in this move towards Electric Vehicles (EVs). We also urge the entire industry to help lead the world in adopting alternative mobility solutions, just like we are doing in cleaner emissions through BS-VI norms.
This move (towards EVs) will be very critical though because it impacts an industry that is a significant contributor to the Country’s GDP and is a large jobs creator. It also puts the industry, manufacturers, and customers in unfamiliar territory, as the automotive ecosystem all over the world is still only beginning to understand the development and applications of EV technologies. In such a scenario, coming close on the heels of the implementation of BS-VI norms in 2020, this move could have serious implications on the industry and the millions who are dependent on it.
Therefore, we propose a more cautious, clear and realistic roadmap towards the adoption of EVs. The scale and timing of the adoption need prudent deliberations and we will gladly support all stakeholders in this process.
