LCV to benefit greatly from Indian middle class growth

Globally, LCVs account for 75% of commercial vehicles sales but in India, it is only 62%. Indian middle class which is growing at a healthy pace will bolster growth in the commercial vehicles space in India going forward and the biggest beneficiary will be the light commercial vehicles (LCV) segment
The increase in urbanisation and consumption will lead to shifts in market segments and LCV will play a crucial role in last mile connectivity. Industry experts feel that there are 3 big challenges the industry needs to overcome to realise this sales potential which are lack of availability of finance due to liquidity crunch at NBFC, the upcoming BS-VI emission norms and a lack of drivers. With the introduction of BSVI, the cost hike will be much higher than the prediction of 5%-7%. The electric and autonomous vehicles are inevitable in future and the keys to growth will be reducing time taken to bring new models to the market, making vehicle platforms more flexible and dynamic, and staying…

Tesla plans to enter India this year or next

Tesla have chief officer tweeted that he would love to be in India this year or max by next year. Same Musk 10 months back had blamed restrictive policy of India for delaying carmaker’s entry into world’s 4th largest automobile market. The Narendra Modi-led government has been wooing Tesla to set up a factory but Musk has held back citing challenging government regulations as hurdles and in the past had sought temporary waiver on import penalties and other restrictions until a local facility is built. After 4 years planning Tesla started its first car manufacturing unit outside US in China at a cost of $5 billion. India has a paltry 6,000 passenger EV on its roads, compared with China’s 1.35 million. Though India is a promising market for EV maker but it lags behind China and is plagued by minimal government support for cleaner technology and paucity of charging stations.

Microdots technology to make car almost theft proof

To counter car thefts, Indian govt has decided to adopt microdots technology which is widely used in several counties including South Africa and the US. The vehicles stolen go untraced since auto-lifters take out the engines & other valuable parts before destroying the vehicles. Microdots is a technology in which thousands of micro dots are sprayed over the body of vehicle. These small laser-etched dots contain nano-size (0.5 mm) particles that carry information like unique number and vehicle identification number. These dots can be seen by using UV light and since the dots are sprayed throughout the vehicle body, it becomes easy to trace the vehicle as even a small part of the dismantled car can be used to trace the stolen vehicle. The government plans to roll out the technology as an optional system initially and the price of this feature is likely to be around Rs 1,000. The car, truck or bus would require at least 10,000 microdots, while at least 5,000 such dots would be neede…

Nandan Nilekani on Self-drive cars and e-vehicles future in India

The Infosys co-founder believes that India needs disruption right now to tackle smoggy skies, snarling traffic jams and rising population which has become hallmark of every metro city in the country. As per him the problems have become too big and the “chalta hai” attitude would not work anymore. The current technology advancements do not offer a solution to the struggles of navigating India’s urban maze and it is high time for marriage of tech-driven transit solutions like self-drive cars, electric vehicles and public transport with ride share to provide the solution. Given its population density, mass transit systems are the need of the hour in India and car-pooling must be encourage to eliminate personal automobile ownership.

Tesla enters into agreement with Chinese lenders for Gigafactory

Tesla Inc has signed an agreement with lenders in China for a 12-month facility of up to 3.5 billion yuan ($521 million) for the electric carmaker's Gigafactory in Shanghai. The facility is expected to be completed by May and would cost around $2 billion to Tesla. With the on-going US-China trade war Tesla was forced to adjust prices of its US made cars in China and now with this agreement it would be able to reduce the trade war impact by producing cars locally. It would also help Tesla to fend off price competition from a swathe of Chinese EVs start-ups such as Nio Inc, Byton and XPeng Motors.

Brighter days ahead for reduced charging time for EVs

Tesla is updating its charging network to halve typical wait times by doubling power at Tesla’s stations and preheating vehicle batteries ahead of arriving at a plug which would lead charging time to drop to around 15 minutes
Its V3 Supercharger network capable of such a feat would be rollout by end of 2019r and would allow twice as many cars each day to charge. The debut of this latest technology has happened in North America and would soon reach Europe and the Asia-Pacific region by 4th Qtr. This new network would deliver 250KW, up from 120KW, as more fast-charging infrastructure is built. The EV space is becoming hotter by the day and Ionity GmbH, a consortium of Volkswagen AG, Mercedes Benz-maker Daimler AG, Ford Motor Co. and BMW AG, are planning to have 400 station across Europe’s major highways with 350 kw capacity by the middle of 2020.
