India To Embrace Electric Cars In A Big Way

The country of India is suffering from increasing air pollution, much of it from motor vehicle emissions. They have recently passed China in the number of deaths thought to be caused by outdoor air pollution. The Indian government is hoping to come to grips with this by selling only electric automobiles by the year 2030.

The Indian government also recently pushed for a move to more efficient LED light bulbs by subsidizing purchases. It's expected electric vehicles will be subsidized too, at least initially.

Delhi was India's most polluted city, the [Greenpeace] report found, with concentrations of particulate matter 13 times the annual limit set by the World Health Organisation.
