Electric Mobility: Covid a blessing in disguise for electric mobility: Hero Electric CEO – Times of India


- Advertisment -

NEW DELHI: Coronavirus crisis could be an opportunity in disguise for sustainable mobility to flourish in India, thinks Sohinder Gill, director general of SMEV.
In an exclusive interview to TOI, Gill said, “India has already made its share of mistakes in the past by jeopardizing sustainable mobility. The Covid crisis is a big jolt. While the industries were down and the fossil fuel consumption was low, it gave us a good proof that we can rely on sustainability and continue with this culture.”
Gill, who is also the CEO of Hero Electric, believes substituting internal combustion engines with electric mobility is the best foot forward.
“In a country, where there are electric buses, two-wheelers and three-wheelers already plying, it’s just a matter of taking big decisions. The crisis will act as a turning point. India has multiple cities in the list of most-polluted. The scenario should change,” said Gill.
Hero Electric’s CEO also believes that the startups associated with electric and sustainable mobility will get through the crisis with signs of normalcy reappearing.
For now, these startups only have to focus on downsizing and laying low until the Covid crisis is eliminated, said Gill.
Gill added that the electric industry will lead the pack and this crisis will help in bringing out a permanent solution for the ecosystem.
