National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) 2020

Ministry : Ministry of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises
National Electric Mobility Mission Plan 2020
  • It was unveiled in 2013.
  • This Mission Plan has been designed mainly considering the Fuel Security and Environmental Pollution in the country.
  • To promote electric mobility in the country.
  • NMEM aims for a cumulative fuel saving of about 9500 million litres.
  • This results in reduction of pollution and greenhouse gas emission of 2 million tonnes with targeted market penetration of 6-7 million vehicles by 2020.
  • FAME stands for Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles
  • Aims to support hybrid/electric vehicles market development and manufacturing ecosystem.
  • Launched in 2015 under National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP)
  • The overall scheme is proposed to be implemented over a period of 6 years, till 2020.
  • It is intended to support the hybrid/electric vehicles market development and its manufacturing eco-system to achieve self-sustenance at the end of the stipulated period.
  • The scheme is one of the green initiatives of the Government of India
  • It will be one of the biggest contributors in reducing pollution from road transport sector in near future.
  • The scheme has 4 focus areas i.e.
      • Technology development,
      • Demand Creation,
      • Pilot Projects and
      • Charging Infrastructure.
  • The FAME India Scheme is aimed at incentivizing all vehicle segments i.e. 2 Wheeler, 3 Wheeler Auto, Passenger 4 Wheeler Vehicle, Light Commercial Vehicles and Buses.
  • Government has withdrawn subsidy given to mild hybrid vehicles
  • Earlier, subsidy was given to mild hybrid, strong hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure electric vehicles
What is mild hybrid vehicle?
  • A mild hybrid vehicle has an electric motor, which on its own cannot run a vehicle but assists normal engine by using recovered energy stored in a battery and helps save fuel.
  • It uses the energy generated while applying the brakes and turns it into electric energy which is then stored in a battery. This energy can then be used to turn the starter motor when the car’s start stop system needs it.
  • Mild-hybrids are 7-15% more fuel efficient as compared to conventional hybrid systems that can run on pure electric power for short distances too.
