All of us have seen the quality of air decrease in our country. This is leading to multiple respiratory diseases like asthma and also cancer. One of the causes is vehicles. This may not be the largest source of pollution but is definitely a source. We should make a conscious decision to allow only hybrid and electric cars to be sold in India after 2026. This will give manufacturers enough time to come up with newer models and set-up plants. This will also give time to set-up the required infrastructure in terms of charging points everywhere.
This is how a hybrid car works:
It has an electric motor as well as a conventional motor which work together. At low speeds only the electric motor is sufficient. Let’s hope this policy can be implemented soon.
