Overall Summary: 
The National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) 2020 aims to achieve national fuel security by promoting hybrid and electric vehicles in the country. There is an ambitious target to achieve 6-7 million sales of hybrid and electric vehicles year on year from 2020 onwards. Government aims to provide fiscal and monetary incentives to kick start this nascent technology. The Government plans to incentivize buyers while purchasing these hybrid and electric vehicles by providing monetary support. ---NOTE: xEVs stands for: Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV), Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), Extended Range Electric Vehicle (ER-EV), and Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV).
Efficiency
EE targets: 
It is estimated that in 2020, the total new vehicle sales of 6-7 million xEVs will result in total liquid fuel savings to the tune of 2.2 - 2.5 MT. The vehicle segment wise possible savings in the liquid fuels in 2020 is given in Table 29.
EE transport standards : 
The government will [...] have to ensure the development of electric vehicle performance, quality and safety parameters/standards. This will include issues relating to vehicle and battery performance, durability & warranties, driving range, charge time, energy efficiency of vehicle, standardization of technical characteristics [...].
EE financial incentives: 
A comprehensive demand incentive scheme will comprise of various elements [...]. The quantum of incentive, the parameters for deciding their distribution/gradation amongst the various vehicle segments & technologies, the minimum qualifying criterion/boundary parameters that need to be insisted upon, and the supplementing demand assurance measures for some of the vehicle segments together constitute the elements required for a comprehensive demand incentive scheme. This is at the core of the NEEMP 2020 strategy [...].---Various incentives schemes are proposed.---The NBEM in their second meeting decided that the report findings on quantum of demand subsidy will be taken as the indicative starting point and the WG on demand and supply will use these inputs to recommend the specific incentive levels etc for the approval of the NCEM. It was also decided that [...] the incentive delivery mechanism should be made as simple as possible.---The incentives for xEVs are proposed to be phased out in five years for the various vehicle segments. [...] In case of four wheelers, it is envisaged that the incentives will be gradually phased out from the sixth year with 100,000 units supported in the first half and 50,000 units in the second half of the sixth year. Following this the incentives will be withdrawn.[...] In case of two wheelers, it is proposed that in the initial years i.e. 2012-2014; higher levels of incentives ranging from Rs 7500 - Rs 15000 (depending on vehicle type) can be given to boost demand. [...]. The introduciton of xEVs buses can be done on pilot project basis, for cities such as Dehli, Mumbai, Bangalore [...].
Cooperation in EE: 
The government will [...] need to co-ordinate efforts for international collaboration in the area of growth of electric mobility and also for R&D activities in this field.
Environment
Decarbonization strategy: 
The Government of India has been supporting electric mobility efforts in the country.---The State Governments, local bodies, municipalities are also important stakeholders and will have a key role to play in effective adoption and roll out of electric mobility through host of measures like road tax incentives, mandating charging infrastructure in building byelaws, enabling private parties to sell electricity, earmarking certain areas for electric vehicles only, selective levies like parking fees. These measures are expected to substantially de-risk the large private investments required and thereby create the environment and provide confidence for realizing the xEV demand by 2020.---Encouraging development and manufacture of xEVs and their components in India is one of the prime objectives of the NMEM.[...] It is therefore essential for the Government to support demand creation in the initial phases through narrowing the price difference between IC engine and xEVs vehicles

Investment
Investment climate development: 
In order to achieve the potential xEVs demand for 2020, all stakeholders of the Plan will need to work in unison harmony. [...] The Government will have to assume the role of collaborator, facilitator, adopt new concepts and have a much faster&flexible decision making approach in its working.---The Government of India has been supporting electric mobility efforts in the country.---The State Governments, local bodies, municipalities are also important stakeholders and will have a key role to play in effective adoption and roll out of electric mobility through host of measures like road tax incentives, mandating charging infrastructure in building byelaws, enabling private parties to sell electricity, earmarking certain areas for electric vehicles only, selective levies like parking fees. These measures are expected to substantially de-risk the large private investments required and thereby create the environment and provide confidence for realizing the xEV demand by 2020.
Public Private Partnerships: 
Exploring the feasibility of consortiums for providing energy solutions for xEVs: The setting up of the x EVs energy infrastructure needs to be kept in the private domain or through PPP model as viable business models. The role of the Government needs to be restricted to facilitating, monitoring and oversight initiatives. [...].

R&D pollution abatement: 
The automotive R&D institutes, R&D centers in other related areas, academia and the industry will be required to collaborate in their research efforts in a more effective manner so as to have faster and desirable outcomes. [...] The National Automotive Board (NAB) will play a key pivotal role in this regard.[...].
