Financing is the next critical barrier to accelerate India’s electric mobility transition. The report also identifies a market size of $50 billion (Rs 3.7 lakh crore) for the financing of EVs in 2030

NITI Aayog and Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) have released a report called ‘Mobilising Finance for EVs (Electric Vehicle) in India’. The report highlights the role of finance in the India’s transition to EVs and analyses that the transition will require a cumulative capital investment of $266 billion (Rs 19.7 lakh crore) in EVs, charging infrastructure, and batteries over the next decade.

“The need of the hour is to mobilise capital and finance towards EV assets and infrastructure,” said Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog.

Kant added, “As we work to accelerate domestic EV adoption and push for globally competitive manufacturing of EVs and components such as advance cell chemistry batteries, we need banks and other financiers to step up to lower the cost and increase the flow of capital for EVs.”

Financing is the next critical barrier

India’s EV ecosystem has so far focused on overcoming hurdles to adoption associated with technology cost, infrastructure availability, and consumer behaviour. Financing is the next critical barrier to accelerate India’s electric mobility transition. The report also identifies a market size of $50 billion (Rs 3.7 lakh crore) for the financing of EVs in 2030 – about 80 percent of the current size of India’s retail vehicle finance industry, estimated to be worth about Rs 4.5 lakh crore (USD 60 billion) today.

“Reengineering vehicle finance and mobilising public and private capital will be critical to accelerating the deployment of the 50 million EVs that could be plying on India’s roads by 2030,” said Clay Stranger, Senior Principal, Rocky Mountain Institute. “These solutions represent high-leverage areas for interventions in finance, and we believe that many are relevant beyond India.”

The report further determines that investment in India’s transition to electric mobility has the potential to create significant economic, social, and environmental benefits for the country. As the economics of EVs continue to improve, new business models and financing instruments gain acceptance, and government programmes drive early adoption and promote domestic manufacturing, India’s EV market is poised for growth in the coming decade.

The 10 solutions recommended in the report include financial instruments such as priority sector lending and interest rate subvention. Others are related to creating better partnerships between original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and financial institutions by providing product guarantees and warranties. Furthermore, a developed and formal secondary market can improve the resale value of EVs and improve their bankability.
