Trial run for electric vehicles kickstarts on proposed Delhi-Agra e-corridor

The trial run of electric vehicles for the Delhi-Agra e-Corridor is underway. E-vehicle trial run for the Delhi-Jaipur route will start next year.

Centre is strongly focused on electric vehicle public transport system, but the necessary infrastructure required for e-vehicle to go from one state to another poses a serious challenge. To overcome this challenge, the government is preparing to build an e-highway in partnership with private players.

Currently, the trial run of electric vehicles for the Delhi-Agra e-Corridor is underway. The specialty of the Delhi-Agra e-corridor is that it will have an electric public transport system, but if you are driving an e-vehicle, then you will also be given the facility of technical help or backup from the charging station.

Meanwhile, the e-vehicle trial run for the Delhi-Jaipur route will start in February 2021.Expressway (between Delhi and Agra) and the National Highway 48 (between Delhi and Jaipur) will be 500 km, with 20 charging stations.

A total of 90,000 vehicles will run annually on these corridors. A nominal fee will be charged for the use of these E-corridors.
The Centre has opened up investments into the e-corridor for Public Sector Units as well as private players.

“The project is about converting 500-km of expressway into electric corridors with facilities for charging electric vehicles,” National Programme Director EODB at ASSAR, Abhijeet Sinha, had earlier told PTI.
In an earlier interview with PTI, Sinha said that the cost of the entire project would amount to around ₹two crore and the electricity charges would be extra.
