NHEV is an intercity e-mobility prototypical ‘Transformative Mobility and Battery Storage’ program to from EoDB division of ‘ASSAR’, based on licensing reforms of MoP for electric corridors; on minimalistic CAPEX and self-sustainable OPEX.

In his thank you note winner recipient Mr. Sinha said ‘NHEV has 30 min, 30% and 3 years means having 30 Min back up for all electric vehicles on this highway, 30% lesser cost of vehicle for fleet operators and 3 years break even with 35% utilization if CAPEX spend on civil infra structure of Charging Stations, Battery Banks. He further added this 20 million highway project will raise the utilization of Civil infrastructure CAPEX by 35% on highways as opposed to existing 3 to 4% in the cities and aims at 0.3 to 9% change of total traffic to EVs in a year on these corridors.
