The third edition of ‘Automotive Forum 2013’ is being conducted today on 13th August, 2013 by the B2B Automotive magazine ‘Autocar Professional’. The forum is taking place in Chennai and is based on the theme of ‘Evolution of Electric Mobility’.
The history of electric cars has been as old as the conventional fuel based cars, but the fact is not known to many people. The challenges faced by the electricity run vehicles and the growing development of the consumption engines led to the popularity of fuel engines while the electric vehicles took a back seat. However, with the growing environmental awareness and concern among the people, the grounds of the electricity run vehicles have again caught up attention of the human conscience.
The electric vehicle serves best in accordance with the environmental conservation, ceding the depletion of fossil fuels and the uptight emission norms, and thus is the most viable option available to the people. Therefore, the EV industry is at the booming state right now, ready to enter the mainstream any time. However, there are multiple questions that need to be answered and evaluated in order to know the future of the EV industry.
Is the electric vehicle is actually a sustainable and practical mobility solution? How would the Indian markets receive it? And many more questions. Thus, the forum is organized to discuss all these questions, get the opinion of the industry experts and try to get answers to these questions.
The speakers of the forum include the Product Planning Head of Nissan Motor India, Mr Chikuya Takada, Mr Kartik Gopal, the General Manager of the Mobility Solutions and Business Development of Mahindra Reva and Mohit Arora, the Executive Director of JD Power Asia Pacific.
