Diesel vehicles versus e-vehicles
5/14/2023 10:21:55 PM

A report of the energy transition committee has recommended banning the use of diesel-powered four-wheelers in cities with over 10 lakh population and switching to electric and gas-fuelled vehicles by 2027.
The report has not been accepted by the government till date. The report of the committee headed by former oil secretary Tarun Kapoor has also suggested phasing out motorcycles, scooters, and three-wheelers with internal combustion engines by 2035.
According to media reports the report submitted by the committee headed by Kapoor may not be implemented fully and the diesel powered four wheelers may continue to run in the cities, but the other part about switching over to electric and gas fuelled vehicles has already been implemented.
The electric scooters and cars have already started replacing the petrol run vehicles and are becoming popular with each passing day in the big and small cities. The focus has shifted on electric mobility. It appears that green energy is set to change the scenario. In Jammu and Kashmir, there has been substantial increase in battery driver two-wheelers and three-wheelers. This is apart from the addition of electric buses. So far, the battery driven vehicles have been effective.
During the past few years the government has taken several initiatives to promote electricity mobility including charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. The biggest challenge which battery run vehicles face is their limited driving range. The government has taken many steps to set up charging stations at different places. Efforts are on to put these stations in place in such a way that electric vehicles don’t face problems while running on the roads.
There are four reasons to switch to electric buses –reduced pollutant emissions, lowered fiscal deficits due to oil, limited operating costs, and decreased greenhouse effect.
But it would be too early to suggest that these vehicles will replace the diesel or petrol run vehicles in a short span of time. Before electric engines replace the combustible engines a proper infrastructure needs to be put in place to avoid chaos and confusion. For the time being diesel powered vehicles are there to stay but introduction of e-vehicles is all set to reduce their numbers.
