The Indian government is considering building 6,000 kilometers of electric vehicle-optimized highways on the Golden Quadrilateral to promote e-mobility and reduce fuel consumption and emissions. The initiative is part of the proposed Vision 2030: PM Public Transport Sewa. The development of e-highways is expected to drive the growth of charging infrastructure, encouraging the use of electric cars for daily commuting. The government plans to replace 800,000 diesel buses with electric ones by 2030, deploying 2,00,000 electric buses for state transport undertakings, 5,50,000 for private operators, and 50,000 for schools and employee transportation.
