General Corporate

Rapid economic development coupled with a never-ending surge to save travel time have resulted in widespread adoption of automobiles throughout the globe. While automobiles have helped human beings develop at an exponential rate, they have also adversely contributed to global warming. India, along with various other countries, has signed and ratified the Paris Agreement to limit global warming in the interest of climate change. This has led to the Indian Government effecting various methods to decrease India’s CO2 emissions. Some initiatives were by adopting stricter emission norms for combustion engines, promoting electric vehicles (EVs) by giving a host of incentives to manufacturers and end-customers etc. Initially, EVs were plagued with various issues such as less range, mediocre performance, lack of electric vehicle charging infrastructure (EVCI) etc. With passage of time, while most of these issues were resolved to an extent so as to allow practical usage, EVCI was yet to catch up.

In this article, we will discuss the emergence of data-driven startups who are using artificial intelligence (AI) to script a change in this sector.
