Speaking on the occasion, co-founder and CEO, C Electric Automotive Drives, a startup incubated in Maker Village, emphasized on the need to build an ecosystem favourable for the electric vehicles. "Now, electric vehicles are increasingly being promoted. But the question is whether we are ready for the huge rollout of electric vehicles. It's high time to give a focus for creating an ecosystem favourable for the same. At present, the components are imported mainly from China but their products are not suitable for our geographic conditions." He added that with the electric vehicles gaining acceptance, solar energy could be tapped for power generation to charge the vehicles.
