Buses which are much larger in size and do more number of trips ina single day, than the smaller vehicles are the protagonists in the EV story. Since they consume larger amount of fuels, they also present the larger opportunity of fuel savings.
A total of 500 barrels of diesel are displaced each day for every 1000 electric buses on the road.
In comparison, only 15 barrels are displaced through the same number of electric passenger vehicles.
If we calculate on same lines, it is estimated that within India, savings of Rs 287.6 crore can be achieved in a single day.
