Giving momentum to the EV (electric vehicle) policy in Telangana, Piaggio Vehicles launched Ape-E-City, an electric three-wheeler passenger auto vehicle, in the city. According to the officials of Piaggio, the pioneer of three-wheeler goods transportation in the country, Ape-E-City comes with a fixed battery, which is swappable. After charging for around four hours, these electric autos can ply for over 100 km on the city roads. 


Transport Minister Puvvada Ajay Kumar, while launching the Piaggio’s electric three-wheelers, said that EV sales have been on a rapid rise, and the government is giving fees exemption to vehicle users to encourage them to shift to electric. According to Ajay Kumar, this exemption is being given in the registration fee and quarterly fee on EVs in spite of the state government bearing the burden of Rs 264 crore. The state is aiming to reduce air pollution in Hyderabad and also to make them substitutes for petrol/diesel vehicles.


Ajay Kumar also mentioned that registrations of over 300 electric auto-trolley vehicles and 26 passenger EVs had been done, and more are in the offing soon. The government has given a 100% exemption of registration fee, and road tax for the first 20,000 electric three-wheelers purchased and registered within Telangana and a 15% incentive of the retrofitting cost capped at `15,000 per vehicle for the first 5,000 retrofitted three-seater auto rickshaws.


On Tuesday, an EV charging station was inaugurated at Engineering Staff College of India, Gachibowli. The simultaneous charging of around six vehicles can be supported by these two 10 KW AC charges. Managing Director, Telangana State Renewable Energy Development Corporation (TSREDCO), N Janaiah, who inaugurated the facility, said that the government had launched a drive of providing electric vehicle charging stations throughout Telangana to curb the carbon emissions and internal oil pool account of diesel and petrol.
