Registered number of vehicles Mumbai India FY 2006-2017

The number of registered vehicles across the financial capital of India was over three million at the end of fiscal year 2017. Mumbai was the most car-congested city in the country in 2019. In recent years, the density of privately-owned vehicles increased by 18 percent in the city. Despite the private car population being one-third of the nation’s capital Delhi, the lack of infrastructure has proved to be a significant shortcoming.

Automotive in India

India ranked fourth in the passenger car production sector worldwide in 2018, with over four million units produced in 2018. Although, in contrast, the domestic market has been dominated by the two-wheeler segment. This was probably due to the latter’s ability to navigate the narrow Indian roads. Sales volume for two-wheelers continued to increase over the past few years.

An e-future

The number of electric vehicle sales in the dominating two-wheeler segment across the country doubled between 2014 and 2018, with help from government initiatives to enhance e-mobility. The number of electric two-wheelers was estimated to cross the 26 million mark by 2030. With strict emission laws and reduced taxes on electric vehicles, the Indian government has been making efforts to make a radical yet streamlined switch to e-mobility.
