Although I have great regard for the Indian Automotive OEM, the amount they spend on R and D is probably one of the lowest in the world. I would not like to say that Indian OEMs copied the Technology of MULTINATIONAL OEMs. It is just that they take Inspiration!
CRUDE OIL, we are dependent on Imports, Lithium, Graphite, Lithium-Ion Battery we are once again dependent on Imports. It is good to see that OEM are moving fast in the direction of EVs. We do not have Public Charging Infrastructure, we do not have our own Lithium resource.
Then, what is it that one should do considering the situation our country is in?
1. Produce Lightweight Vehicles: Use Magnesium and Aluminum in a big way to reduce weight. 10% reduction in weight, would increase the mileage of an EV vehicle by 18% ( REPORT- US ENERGY ).
Problem: With due respect to the Designers in the OEM, most of them are not capable of designing Parts using the complete Physical and Metallurgical strengths of Magnesium alloy. I cannot say much about Aluminum Alloys. This weakness is shrouded in Lame excuses and reasons such as Mg being explosive, Lack of Suppliers in India, etc, and the list can go on.
2. Extract Lithium Hydroxide from LIMESTONE, which would be the Primary source of Lithium for Batteries.
3. Extract Magnesium from DOLOMITE mines.
Hi Suraj, thank you for sharing your thoughts on this. I totally agree with you that we have to start working on creating self sustaining ecosystem, if we want this emerging alternative energy dependence ,to have any deep and meaningful impact. I hope the industry heads start to look at the sources of minerals and other raw materials like you suggested. If that can be coordinated and achieved, I think our country has the potential to be a global leader. Till then, a lot will depend on the policy realignment at higher levels.
