How BIG ICE Killed the Indian EV Ecosystem and Wasted 10 years | Podcast

Get some popcorn or get ready for a long drive while you listen to this fascinating discussion on the Origins of the Indian Electric Car Industry and what has happened over the past 20 years.

Kamlesh form PluginIndia has a candid conversation with Mr Zarryl who has been servicing Reva and e2o electric cars in his own factory when Mahindra has abandoned hundreds of EV owners. We salute Zarryl’s team for enabling Reva’s and e2o’s to help go beyond 2025!
