In 2021, COP26 took place in Glasgow, Scotland and witnessed a historic moment for the country of India when it committed to achieving Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2070. The national government’s Ministry of Road Transport and Highways announced a target of EV30@2030 — 30% of newly registered private cars, 40% of buses, 70% of commercial cars, and 80% of 2-wheelers and 3-wheelers  will be electric by 2030. The states in India have a critical role in accelerating the transition to electric vehicles, and it was with this goal that the Government of Tamil Nadu – India’s tenth largest state and home to over 70 million people –  launched its first Electric Vehicle Policy in 2019.
