India Likely to Get World’s Longest EV Highway By End of 2022

By 2030, India wants 30% of private automobiles, 70% of commercial vehicles, 40% of buses and 80% of two- and three-wheelers to be electric. But way before that, India is likely to get the world’s longest EV roadway by the end of 2022 or early 2023.

Currently, the world’s largest EV highway, which is 109-km long, is located in Germany’s Berlin.

India’s Agra-Delhi-Jaipur 500-km highway, named Atal Harit Vidyut Rashtriya Mahamarg (AHVRM), is currently under construction and is likely to be renamed during inauguration.

The project was intended to be announced during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Jewar airport foundation stone-laying event last year. But was deferred owing to lack of progress amid lockdowns.

With two years until the next general election, the central government is now considering completing the project by the end of 2022 or early 2023.

Abhijeet Sinha, project director of National Highway for Electric Vehicles (NHEV), reportedly shared key details.
