The government of India in this regard has set an ambitious target of achieving 30% electric vehicle penetration by 2030. However, the high upfront prices of EVs remain a considerable hurdle for widespread adoption.

EV financing comes as the provision of loans or other forms of financial support to facilitate customers to purchase EVs. These financing solutions can be delivered by banks, non-banking financial companies (NBFCs), or other financial institutions.
