The automobile industry is yet to submit its report on road map to transition two- and three-wheelers to full electric vehicles, according to a senior government official.   At a meeting with industry representatives in June last year, the Niti Aayog had asked the industry to come back within two weeks with concrete steps towards the transition but manufacturers had stated they would need a minimum of four months to work on the same. Hero MotoCorp, Bajaj Auto, TVS Motor, and Honda have opposed the Niti Aayog’s plan to push for 100 per cent electric vehicles by completely banning conventional two- and three-wheelers.
