As per the state’s recently introduced law, no diesel vehicle older than 10 years is allowed to run on public roads and as such was given a one-way ticket to the scrap yard. This new lease on life has been provided to aging diesel cars in light of Delhi’s staggering rise in pollution levels. Not only does the move allow car owners to salvage their possessions, but it also expands the EV ecosystem, with aftermarket retrofitting companies stepping in to get a slice of the EV market. Of course, not every kit maker is free to install an EV battery and more, in your car. India already has a thriving EV kit making ecosystem which includes start-ups like Loop Moto, North Way Motor Sport and Altigreen along with established players like Bosch which is also a key component manufacturer for global EV manufacturers.
