According to BYD's Senior Vice President, New Delhi has immense potential for electric passenger vehicles. This is because Delhi Government's EV policy says that there are 18,000 electric charging stations being planned that will be installed in the city by 2024. The goal is to have one station for every 15 electric vehicles inside the city.
