As the world transitions towards electrification and electric vehicles (EV) and the inevitable EV transition gains momentum in India, developing a concrete EV ecosystem that builds on priorities and incorporates Indian realities is the need of the hour. The burgeoning EV market in Germany is a potential opportunity that the Indian automotive industry could benefit from.

Keeping this in mind, we look into how India can integrate with Germany towards this transition to electrification in order to create an integrated EV ecosystem.

We organised an event on Thursday, 22 April 2021 at 1:30–3:00 pm (IST) /10:00–11:30 am (CET) where we presented and launched our analysis. The launch event also featured a panel discussion comprising of distinguished panelists from the automotive and start-ups industries from India and Germany.
