It is likely that these electric vehicles will be used by various government agencies. Although the two electric wheels can be used by government employees, the three electric wheels can be used to deliver goods.

CESL has also partnered with several companies, including Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), TVS Motor Company, JBM Renewables Pvt Ltd. and Fortum India for the development of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure.

Under these agreements, the CESL says it will invest in the implementation of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles and will control the use of assets. Agreements between the CESL and the governments of Goa and Kerala will focus on the development of Ev charging infrastructure on highways and freeways in these states. The CESL claimed in a statement that the feasibility of parking and charging facilities for customers in all EV segments will also be examined within the project.

Speaking about the agreements, Nilesh Cabral, the Minister of Energy, Environment, New and Renewable Energy of the Government of Goa, said that this agreement will help Goa to become a green state.

India’s electric vehicle space is dominated by two- and three-wheel electric vehicles. Two low-speed electric wheels are experiencing rising demand. The three electric wheels have also seen a steady increase in sales in recent years.

Although the two low-speed electric wheels are perfect for regular trips around and around the city, the three electric wheels have played a key role in the transport of passengers and goods for the last kilometer. The steady rise in oil and diesel prices is fueling this growth in Indian EV sales.
