The state government is committed to the idea of having electric vehicles or EVs on roads. And by the year 2035, petrol and diesel cars would be a thing of the past, according to many analysts. Road Transport Authority (RTA) of the west zone, CPV Rao, says that EVs are indeed the future. Given the increasing prices of fuel and scarcity of fossil fuel, it looks like EVs will be a reality sooner than expected by many. It is estimated that diesel vehicles will come down to a mere 20 percent in a few years and are likely to disappear from the market and roads too. In fact, according to Rao, diesel vehicles are likely to end up in scrap.


However, the only hitch for faster conversion happens to be the speed. Battery-operated EVs are no match to the speed of diesel and petrol-run vehicles. Also, those who have combustion vehicles will have a tough time maintaining them, and re-registration charges will also go up, making it costly to maintain such vehicles.


Already, there is a policy in the pipeline with regards to having all EVs on the road by 2035. Then there is the breed that owns vintage cars. One such person from the city happens to be Capt Kayarmin Piston, the owner of Chermas Showrooms and a lot of vintage cars. He shares that it has indeed become a problem to own and maintain vintage vehicles as the parts need to be imported from the countries they were manufactured in. However, he adds that they permission from the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways that allows them to register a vehicle that is older than 50 years. He says such owners can also run their vehicles all across the country with this national permit, in case they have fitness certificates and insurance.


In all, it would be prudent to invest in an EV instead of regretting later.
