Appeals and barriers to adopting EVs
A consumer perception survey on opportunities and barriers to adoption of EVs across Tamil Nadu, brings to light high satisfaction rates amongst existing EV users, but significant barriers to greater adoption. Only one in four cab and three wheeler cargo fleets, and one in five four wheeler cargo fleets are willing to adopt EVs. High costs and inadequate charging infrastructure are the main barriers. Raising awareness about the state’s revised EV policy and effective implementation will be key to addressing barriers for consumers.
