Based on data from the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, out of 10,44,600 electric vehicles registered nationwide, 4,14,802 were sold in Tamil Nadu up to September.

Tamil Nadu is progressively pursuing its ambition of emerging as India’s leading electric vehicle (EV) hub. According to a government announcement on Monday, the state accounted for sales of 400,000 vehicles from the nation’s total of 1 million EVs between January and September of this year.

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways data reveals that out of 10,44,600 electric vehicles registered across the country, 4,14,802 were sold in Tamil Nadu by September. This achievement underscores the state’s diverse and vibrant multi-sector landscape and the growth drive supported by the government. The industry is set to take centre stage, with anticipated investments of over INR 50,000 crore in EV manufacturing by 2025, expected to create 1.50 lakh jobs.

Encouraged by the increasing EV sales, the government has aspirations to manufacture 30% of all-electric vehicles sold in India by 2030 and aims for a notable contribution to international exports. Significant contributors to the EV sales in Tamil Nadu between January and September were Ola Electric with 1,75,608 lakh units, TVS Motor with 1,12,949 lakh units, Ather Energy with 77,764 units, Ampere Vehicles with 41,757 units, Beijing-based BYD India with 1,725 units, and Stellantis (PCA Automobiles) with 1,533 units.

Other contributors included E-Royce Motors with 1,242 units, Hyundai Motor with 1,023 units, Reep Motors with 810 units, and TI Clean Mobility with 391 units. In light of these developments, Tamil Nadu aims to position itself as the global capital for EVs. The state has introduced its EV policy, bolstered by its auto-manufacturing solid base. The strategy involves developing five cities into EV hubs: Chennai, Coimbatore, Tiruchirappalli, Madurai, and Salem. A combination of a readily available skilled workforce, a robust supply chain, and a thriving auto-component production ecosystem is fueling the growth of the EV sector in Tamil Nadu.

The state’s EV policy is designed to expedite the creation of an ecosystem for battery-powered vehicles and to bolster the manufacture of essential components like cell technologies, batteries, and charging infrastructure.
