World EV Day is observed on September 9 every year. The day marks the celebration of e-mobility. Special awareness campaigns are organised globally to educate people about the benefits of electric vehicles.
World EV Day was an initiative created by sustainability media company Green.TV. The first World EV day was observed in 2020. It was largely a social media campaign that encouraged drivers to recognise the benefits of electric vehicles and make a commitment that the next car they drive will be electric and not run on conventional fuels.
World EV Day works alongside Green.TV’s EV Summit. It brings the world’s e-mobility leaders together to brainstorm on how to take electrification and sustainable transport forwards.
While China is the largest EV market in the world, India is emerging as the next favourite destination for automotive companies. The government has promised to offer all possible help to take the electric vehicle industry forward. Notably, India’s automotive industry is the fifth largest in the world. It is set to become the third largest by 2030.
