Automotive Vision Plan II...

With the Automotive Vision Plan I that envisaged a 145 billion USD turnover, 35 million employment and a 10 per cent of GDP by 2016, the auto industry stands midway in achieving these plans by 2016. “We have reached 78 billion USD turnover, around 29 million in employment and it contributes around 7.5 per cent to GDP. Recession and a staggering rupee have affected the expected growth,” said Ambuj Sharma, Additional Secretary, Department of Heavy Industry, Government of India. The National Automotive Testing, a state-of-the-art facility is under construction at Oragadam at a cost of Rs 700 crore. This will facilitate the testing of safety and speed of powertrains. Another high speed track is to come at Indore in 2 years which can test upto 250 km/hr and will be used mainly for R&D. The government is to unveil the electric mobility policy by 01 April 2015 that will provide several incentives to fully electric or hybrid vehicles. The Indian market is expected to expand to 6-7 million electric vehicles by 2022.
