The 2023 Auto Expo got to a rousing start for the public on January 13 and electric vehicles (EVs) stole the limelight in the biennial automotive show. More than 70 domestic and international automakers showcased their electric vehicles at the expo. Suzuki Motor President Suzuki Toshihiro, at the sidelines of the expo, said that electric vehicles have emerged as a viable option for vehicle owners and synthetic fuel and hydrogen are also new-age options in the automobile space.

As electric mobility catches on in the country, the central government plans on cutting down on vehicular pollution and will work on encouraging 30 per cent of vehicle owners to switch to EVs by 2030. With India grappling with serious air pollution over the last few years, the Central government has planned to reduce vehicular pollution.
