Government announcement on 100% EV by 2030 has hit the overall Automotive Industry like bolt from the blue and almost all industry stakeholders are at various stages of planning to make themselves immune to the emerging EV disruption that is likely to render companies staying in denial mode obsolete. Companies that will remain focussed on legacy products will face an existential crisis and those that will embrace the EV and new-age mobility disruption are likely to survive and thrive.

Push towards EVization will see some companies entering into new while existing traditional business and recent sales of BOSCHs’ starter and generator division to SEG is indicative of that trend. The e-rickshaw space is gaining traction when compared to PV, 2W, and 3W that are still a few years away from industrialization, this has led to companies like SEG, TVS Lucas Ltd to launch products that cater to e-rickshaw space.

Both automobile OEMs and automotive component OEMs are at crossroads in terms of making investment EV and also at what pace they should go about their investment, this to ensure that the breakeven point is not a stretched one. Automotive Industry worldwide is fast changing from IC to Hybrid to EV, while IC will not vanish over next 5 -10 years but it will eventually succumb to newer technology over a period of 20-30 years if not in the next 10 years. InfraInsights have been researching and advising companies on risks and opportunity in EV since the time Minister of Roads & Transport, Mr. Nitin Gadkari made the announcement on EV in 2017. InfraInsights through its detailed research-based consulting proposition, aims to enable auto component manufacturers to navigate the transition from IC to EV seamlessly and provide them with a transition blueprint that outlines roadmap towards a sustainable EV business.

There are both early movers and those that are yet to take a call as far as navigating into EV is concerned. Bharat Forge, for instance, has been investing into companies in EV space and is also looking for investing in electronics and embedded system. Samvardhana Motherson Group is already making electric wiring for trucks and buses, apart from supplying parts to Mahindra Reva and mirrors to Tesla. Component makers understand that investing in EV component technology and capacity is a matter of survival. Once the shift happens, huge numbers of current components will become obsolete. InfraInsights sees that the recent slowdown in the auto industry has pushed Government to go slow on EV ambition but by no means it will shelve its EV plans and hence the breather provided by Government should be taken as the advantage for auto component OEMs to accelerate their preparedness for the successful EV strategy & implementation. InfraInsights through its research aims to provide a playbook that will be useful for auto-component manufacturers that are at various stages of carving out a successful strategy to stay relevant in the inevitable EV regime.
