·        Emissions can also be cut significantly through shared mobility and scrapping older vehicles.

·        All these pathways are critical if India has to keep its international commitment of reducing its carbon intensity by 45 per cent by 2030 (from 2005 base levels).

·        The government has set a very ambitious target of 30 per cent of all passenger vehicles sold by 2030 to be EVs.

·        Government is rightly pursuing multiple options bio-fuel (ethanol and compressed bio-gas) including flex-fuel vehicles, compressed natural gas (CNG), hydrogen, hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) apart from EVs.

·        Ethanol: Ethanol blending has finally taken off after many false starts. Today, the nation has achieved 10 per cent blending and a target has been set for 20 per cent by 2025. Ethanol-blending involves reduction in emission at almost no higher cost for consumers (both fuel and vehicles price).

·        Gas: CNG vehicles are again a low-cost option in driving decarbonisation. They do not cost much higher than ICE vehicles and emit much lesser GHGs.

·        Hybrids: Hybrid electric vehicles is another pathway. They cost more than a ICE vehicle but less than an EV and cut emission by 40 per cent.

·        Hydrogen: Vehicles powered by hydrogen, experts say, are at least a decade away. They appear to be most promising for India in terms of emission obligation (zero emission) and energy security (zero imports).
