I was holding myself back from writing my Part 2 of the connected car series. I thought lets see what CES 2018 has in store this year as there was already a lot of hype building up, that CES is set to be renamed 'Car Electronics Show', instead of what it originally stands for - the 'Consumer Electronics Show'.

Narsi, my batchmate from IIMC, was the joint organiser of Everex, an EV exhibition. Ilanded up at his invitation and had a good time there. The venue of Everex was the Hitex Exhibition Centre in Hitech City. By the way, this was also the venue of the Entrepreneurship Summit, which had Ivanka Trump as an attendee. I was surprised to see more than 230 people turn up to attend. Narsi tells me that this is probably the first EV conference in South India!
Taxis and cabs are becoming a major part of public transportation these days. As technology advances, taxi services are being smoother and cheaper. People prefer taxis for long as well as short trips. The emergence of online taxi services is a prime contributor to this change in preference. Taxis can be considered as a boon and a bane. On one hand it is a help for the people and on the other hand, it is the major partaker in environmental air pollution.
There are many words to describe the brand new Bollinger B1, brilliant, beautiful, basic, badass, and boss are just a few. The Bollinger B1 turned a lot of heads when it made its debut on July 27th in NYC. This new electric SUV will forever be known as the very first all-electric sport utility 4×4. Although Bollinger hasn’t revealed any manufacturing details the fully working prototype proves that this is the future off-roading and Robert Bollinger the founder guarantees that the B1 will go to manufacturing. The company is taking $1000 deposits through THEIR WEBSITE and delivery is expected to start in the first quarter of 2019.

Although Electric Vehicles (EVs) are making more news than Fuel Cell Technology, experts still find it hard to predict which one of the two would be the winner in future, or may be they would go hand in hand as two options (like petrol & diesel today)
The Committee on standardisation of protocol for Electric Vehicles (EV) Charging Infrastructure has come out with recommendations entailing specifications for AC and DC charging for electric vehicles. These standards are called - Bharat EV Charger AC-001 and Bharat EV Charger DC-001.
Team PlugInIndia have been interacting and working with multiple EV Charging Station manufacturers over the last few months.
In this blog, we share information about Electric Vehicle Supply Unit, Home and Public charging, AC & DC charging, Bharath EV specs and other knowledge and insight gained regarding EV charging.
Okinawa Scooters launched the Okinawa Praise electric scooter to critical acclaim especially with its specifications. Look at these numbers!
Adopting Electric mobility within your organisation, would not just benefit your bottom-line but it can truly set you apart in the league.
Electric Vehicles can take you places! Quite literally!
In the last one month I have received requests to connect with numerous EV enthusiasts and it only builds my assurance how promising the EV industry is in India. Where there is demand, there is sure to be supply! With current product portfolio available in India - across cars/vans and buses EV's are limited to city commute, however they have a potential to transform intercity commute as well.
Whats going viral!!! - Tesla enters India.
While factually its true that according to a report, Indian shores have finally gotten lucky to touch Tesla Model X's wheels, the brand hasn't been officially launched in India yet. This Model X is imported by a 'Richie Rich' for probably his love for the Electric Car super brand.
What amuses me most are the conversations that are following. I have friends and family calling me, excited to share this news and soon after, the excitement turns to anxiousness.
We hosted our first 'Let Us Breathe' event at the beautiful,
Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Mumbai on December 10th, 2017.
This is the first event out of a series of events in the coming year across multiple cities in India to promote electric mobility.
Are you disgusted with the air pollution in our cities? Are you tired of noisy vehicles on our roads? Do you want to breathe clean air and have less stress?
If yes, why don't you make the move to electric vehicles (EV)? EV's emit zero local pollution, are economical to operate and are silent.
So would you like to know more?
If your answers to most of these questions is a resounding YES, then look no further!
