What’s in for electric 2 wheelers sector in the Delhi Electric Vehicles Policy 2020
As two-thirds of new vehicle registrations in Delhi comprise two-wheelers.
any attempt at electrification of Delhi's vehicle fleet needs to address these segments to achieve a significant reduction in air pollution.
The demand generation incentives for two-wheelers offered under the policy
shall be based on battery capacity used in vehicles
To avail the demand incentives, the electric two-wheelers shall have to fulfill
the following performance and efficiency eligibility criteria (same as in FAME India Phase II):
A purchase incentive of Rs. 5,000/- per kWh of battery capacity shall be
provided per vehicle to the registered owner and subject to a maximum incentive of Rs. 30,000/- per vehicle.
The registered owner of electric two-wheelers shall also be eligible for a Scrapping Incentive for scrapping and de-registering old ICE two-wheelers registered in Delhi. Up to Rs.5,000/- of the incentive shall be reimbursed by the GNCTD to the registered owner of an electric vehicle.
Ride-hailing service providers shall be allowed to operate electric two-wheeler
taxis, subject to operating within the guidelines to be issued by the Transport Department.
