While the center focuses on the public transport system for electric vehicles, the infrastructure required to move an e-vehicle from one state to another poses a serious challenge. To overcome this challenge, the government is preparing to build an e-highway in collaboration with private companies.
A test run of the Delhi-Agra e-Corridor electric vehicle is currently underway. The characteristic of the Delhi-Agra electronic corridor is that it has electric public transport, but if you are driving an electronic vehicle, you will also be provided with technical assistance and backup facilities from the charging station.
Meanwhile, the Delhi-Jaipur route e-vehicle commissioning will begin in February 2021.
The highway (between Delhi and Agra) and Route 48 (between Delhi and Jaipur) are 500 km and have 20 charging stations.
A total of 90,000 vehicles travel in these corridors annually. There is a small charge for using these E-corridors.
The center has begun investing in electronic corridors for public sector units and private players.
“The project is to transform a 500km highway into an electric corridor equipped with equipment to charge electric vehicles,” Abhijeet Sinha, ASSAR’s National Program Director, told PTI earlier.
In a previous interview with PTI, Sinha said the total cost of the project would reach around 200 million rupees and additional electricity bills.
