Passenger cars in the future will see revised changes in emissions ratings so as to be abreast of fuel norms and sales. These changes haven’t being received with enthusiasm with the automobile industry that has joined hands with SIAM to sort out this issue.
It should be noted that though foreign auto makers also make up a small part of SIAM, they aren’t affected by these regulations as they keep on reinventing technology so as to promote better and cleaner modes of travel a situation where Indian automakers aren’t proving their worth. Companies like BMW, Hyundai and Volkswagen have implemented technologies within their vehicles which help to reduce CO2 emissions to a great extent.
This has been made possible due to investments worth millions of dollars that have helped reshape the way mobility options are thought of. In order to be at par with the world organization where emission ratings are concerned, the Indian government has proposed a emission rating of 128 gm/km a sentiment which hasn’t been taken too kindly by the automobile industry.
