Abstract: Transport accounts for about 19 of global energy use and 23 of energy related CO2 emissions and these shares will likely to rise in the future. As a result of growing GDP, India s primary energy consumption is expected to increase by 70 in the next ten years. The gap between domestic crude oil production and consumption is widening, leading to increase in imports and consequent impact on the trade deficit. This poses a serious challenge to India s energy (fuel) security. The transportation sector accounts for about one-third of the total crude oil consumption and the road transportation accounts for around 80 of this consumption, hence greater adoption of advanced technologies including battery operated EVs (full range of electric vehicles that include hybrids, plug in hybrids and pure electric vehicles) can provide significant contribution in enhancing energy (fuel) security and provide sustainable mobility. Passenger vehicles have added a great convenience to mankind in terms of mobility. However the increasing vehicular population has also posed a great challenge of environment pollution and sustainability of fossil fuels. It has now been realized that problem of pollution has far outweighed the convenience of personal transport. Having said that, neither of the two can be wished away. The case study helps to analyze the issue of sustainability of fuel for personal India. It explores the feasibility of the various alternative fuel options available to the Indian consumer. The case also examines the future of electric vehicles in India and the impact of Government subsidies on electric vehicles.
