Best EV Stocks in India 2022

Why EV stocks to be considered in 2022

The electric vehicle industry in India is a growing industry. One of the major reasons why countries are forced into adopting an electric alternative is climate change. The central and state governments have launched schemes and incentives to promote electric mobility in the country and some regulations and standards are also in place. The country stands to benefit in a large way by switching its transport from IC engines to electric motor-powered.

There are challenges like lack of charging infrastructure, high initial cost and lack of electricity produced from renewable energy. Still, e-commerce companies, car manufacturers, app-based transportation network companies and mobility solution providers have entered the sector and are slowly building up electric car capacity and visibility. The public transport system being one of the most heavily used in a country like India will definitely offer a huge boost to the sector. 

The COVID-19 epidemic affected the auto sector, and demand for electric automobiles, two-wheelers, and three-wheelers suffered as a result of the disruption. According to the Society of Electric Vehicle Manufacturers (SMEV), total electric vehicle registrations fell 20% in FY21 to 236,802 units, down from 295,683 in FY20.

However as the sales of EVs are picking up, the market is expected to register positive growth during the forecast period(2021-2026). The India electric vehicle market was valued at USD 5.47 Billion in 2020, and it is expected to reach USD 17.01 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 23.47% over the forecast period.
