"The youth of Delhi can play a huge role in making the EV movement in Delhi a mass movement.

"They can drive change and be the torchbearers of this movement. The Delhi government will engage with the youth via the Switch Delhi campaign to motivate them to adopt EVs and contribute to a cleaner and greener Delhi," the minister said.

Appealing to the youth of the city to pledge that the first vehicle they purchase would be an electric one, he said they must "come forward and own the ongoing EV movement in Delhi".

Gahlot also noted the range of financial and non-financial incentives offered under Delhi's EV policy.

"By switching to electric two-wheelers, which have very low operating costs, an individual can make an annual saving of approximately 22,000 as compared to using a petrol scooter and 20,000 as compared to a petrol bike," the minister said.

"An average electric two-wheeler provides a lifetime savings of 1.98 tonnes of carbon emissions as compared to an average petrol two-wheeler which is equivalent to planting 11 trees," he added.

Switch Delhi is a mass awareness campaign by the city government to sensitise every Delhiite about the benefits of switching to EVs.
