The event centred around FAME 2 scheme, which promotes ‘Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles’ and also the ‘Phased Manufacturing Program’.
The Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA), the apex body of the auto component industry in India, along with Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) and Indian Electrical & Electronics Manufacturers’ Association (IEEMA), under the aegis of the Ministry of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises, successfully hosted the National xEV Localisation Conference & Exhibition in New Delhi. The event centred around FAME 2 scheme, which promotes ‘Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles’ and also the ‘Phased Manufacturing Program’.
At the event, top policy makers and industry experts deliberated upon opportunities and challenges for local manufacturing of xEV components and charging infrastructure. Alongside, more than 40 component manufacturing companies showcased their latest offerings in an exhibition, at the event.
The summit was graced by eminent personalities including Dr. Asha Ram Sihag, Secretary, Ministry for Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises (GoI), Pravin Agarwal, Joint Secretary, Ministry for Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises, Kenichi Ayukawa, Vice President, SIAM, Maruti Suzuki India Ltd, Ram Venkatarmani, President, ACMA, Harish Agarwal, President, IEEMA, Deepak Jain, Vice President ACMA and several other luminaries.
Speaking on the occasion, Chief Guest Asha Ram Sihag, Secretary, Ministry for Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises said, “We are working on the strategies to leverage the participation of all stakeholders, as well as the competitive potential in the market, to scale up the projected volumes under the Fame 2 scheme. The subsidy is structured to cover almost 20 per cent of the cost of electric vehicles and 40 per cent for the buses.”
Commenting on occasion, Kenichi Ayukawa, President, SIAM said, “As an industry, we are enthusiastic and dedicated towards maximum localisation of xEVs and xEV parts.” Harish Agarwal, President, IEEMA was of the view, “E-mobility and its challenges for localisation will be met effectively by combined efforts of auto manufacturers, auto component manufacturers and electric equipment and component manufacturers. Dividing lines between lathe, conductor and microchips will blur in this endeavour.”
Appreciating the support provided by Government of India, Ram Venkatarmani, President, ACMA said the industry had been long-awaiting a stable road-map for electric mobility from the government which could enable the industry in making its own concrete plans in moving forward in this new, uncharted territory. “We are indeed very delighted at the focus given towards localisation in Fame-2 with the announcement of the PMP programme.”
The event also witnessed intense panel discussions on localisation of components and charging infrastructure.
