Jan 4, 2022

…mentions Sushant Kumar, Founder & Managing Director, AMO Mobility Solutions, in this interview with Juili Eklahare. He throws light on the company’s vision of converting e-mobility into mass mobility in India, why the National Hydrogen Mission is an important step that the government has taken and why the One India One Policy is the need of the hour. Excerpts…

At AMO, you are working towards shifting the paradigm from conventional to electric mobility in India. What is your strategy for this?

Our DNA, including reliable, sustainable and affordable, is driving us to achieve the vision of converting e-mobility into mass mobility in India. Further, we are adding channel partners to strengthen our presence across the country and provide world-class services, warranties, etc. Our research team is working relentlessly to look at the growing trends in a diversified market like India and suggest ways to tap opportunities at the right time.

What are your thoughts on the National Hydrogen Mission? Do you think it can be a game-changer for the automotive industry?

The National Hydrogen Mission is undoubtedly an important step that the government has taken. It’s no secret that conventional energy is very limited, and hence, there is a need for renewable energy to be present in the market. Moreover, the dependency on conventional energy has to shift, and renewable energy is the best alternative sustainable source. It is also because renewable energies are clean and produce neither greenhouse gases – which cause climate change – nor polluting emissions. So, yes, it can be a game-changer, not only for the automobile industry but also to help have an overall better environment.

Do you think One India One Policy for vehicle electrification is the need of the hour?

Currently, the policies have not been consistent across demand, supply, charging and technology related areas. Plus, some state policies still lean on the usage of hybrid vehicles while the country decided to leapfrog to fully electric mobility. We believe that One India One Policy for vehicle electrification is important and need of the hour.

What are your thoughts on the PLI scheme for the automobile sector? How will it benefit the domestic industry?

It is a welcoming move. Whether for building infrastructure, manufacturing batteries or completely relying on other countries like China or Germany, these initiatives are nothing less than a gift driving us closer to our goals. So, the PLI scheme is helping many players, investors & stakeholders to build businesses in the e-mobility space in India.

What is your long-term vision for your company?

We want to achieve our vision of converting e-mobility into mass mobility. We are working relentlessly to add new options to our already unique variants of e-mobility solutions in the long run. Our target is to expand options from high to low-speed electric scooters in the coming years. So, the coming year is going to be exciting for our company. Our end goal is to build a sustainable ecosystem for electric vehicles in India.
