With skyrocketing prices of petrol and diesel, individuals have begun to investigate electric automobiles, and so demand for electric vehicles (EV) is booming. Battery-powered vehicles are gradually taking over the streets of Karnataka, with EV registrations increasing fivefold since 2018.
In accordance with the regional transport office (RTO), the number of EV registrations in the state has increased at least fivefold since 2018. Approximately 88% of EVs are two-wheelers, 6.5% are four-wheelers, and the rest are three-wheelers.
The number of EV registrations in the city and state is increasing with people seeing the advantages of electric automobiles. All EVs are exempted from road taxes and do not require a registration fee, which is further enticing individuals, said Narendra Holkar, assistant commissioner of transport (Enforcement South).
As per RTO statistics, the overall number of EV registrations increased dramatically from 3,806 e-vehicles in 2018 to 22,264 in 2021 through November. In 2021, 19,615 of the 22,264 automobiles were two-wheelers.
With the increase in EVs, the state has seen a significant decrease in petrol and diesel vehicle registrations. The number has decreased year after year, from 15 lakh in 2018 to 14 lakh in 2019, 10 lakh in 2020, and 6 lakh in 2021. The number of combustion fuel two-wheelers has also decreased significantly, falling from 12 lakh in 2019 to four lakh in 2021.
The epidemic appears to have had an impact on non-EV registration; nevertheless, according to data, EVs were unaffected by the pandemic and had a high number of registrations.
EVs with fewer than 25 kilowatts and non-EVs with less than 50 CC can be driven without registration or a licence, according to an RTO official,
Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, recently declared that Karnataka was among the top three states in the country in terms of EV registration. He stated that 8,70,141 EVs had been registered in India, with Uttar Pradesh having the most EV registrations with 255,700 units, followed by Delhi with 125,347 units and Karnataka with 72,544 EVs.
