Further, to encourage the stakeholders, the city government will also launch 'Switch Delhi EV Awards' to felicitate leaders and role models in the e-mobility space. It will felicitate leaders across 15 categories and encourage those building Delhi as 'India’s EV capital'.

The Delhi EV Forum will see participation of Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot, Vice Chairperson, DDC Delhi, Jasmine Shah, and Principal Secretary-cum-Commissioner (Transport) Ashish Kundra. “The Delhi government has been continuously incorporating the voices of the e-mobility ecosystem in the EV policy, and we will felicitate the stakeholders in the upcoming forum for their contributions," said Gahlot.

In 2022, EV sales in Delhi have been averaging close to 10 per cent of the total new sales on a monthly basis with a high of 12.5 per cent in March of 2022. This is a significant rise over 2019-20 when EVs accounted for only 1.2 per cent of new vehicle sales in the city.
