The country with the second-largest population in the world is considering going towards an all-electric vehicle fleet by 2030, with the goal of reducing the country’s fuel imports as well as running costs of vehicles, according to The Times of India.

“We are going to introduce electric vehicles in a very big way. We are going to make electric vehicles self-sufficient like UJALA. The idea is that by 2030, not a single petrol or diesel car should be sold in the country,” Said power minister Piyush Goyal.

The Indian government supported the nation’s largest car maker, Maruti, which led to the development of the nation’s automotive industry, the minister said. He added that the Ministry of Heavy Industries are working on a policy for the promotion of electric vehicles, citing cost as a driving factor. People are more likely to buy EVs when they are cost-effective, he said.

Speaking to the International Business Times, Goyal said he wants the Indian electric car industry to be “driven by demand, and not subsidy,” saying that the industry would need two to three years of hand-holding by the government, after which EVs will start to pay for themselves.

To get the move started, the Indian government is considering “lower-cost financing or some sort of GST support,” according to Goyal, although the industry will no longer receive government aid after the initial two to three-year period. “We would love to see the electric vehicle industry run on its own,” he said.
