Trucks that use diesel have a big impact on our environment. They play a big role in producing India’s entire greenhouse gas and air pollution.
India has said that they were going to convert their trucks and cars to electric to make the country better but, buying batteries for all of the cars and large trucks is really expensive. The batteries are very heavy and expensive to make electrification possible.
Another review from the Division of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley Public Research center (Berkeley Lab) and UCLA shows that advances in battery innovation and emphatically diminished battery costs as of late has changed that. With the right strategies and motivators, battery electric trucks would be more reasonable to work than diesel, and India could turn into a world forerunner in delivering electric vehicles.
This transition from diesel to electric would help the country India decrease its reliance on oil. Also, if everyone converted to electric, big cities like Delhi would start improving the air quality. We could meet the goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2070! India imports 88% of the oil it utilizes and of the complete petrol consumed by the nation’s vehicle area, almost 60% is utilized by cargo trucks. These trucks are answerable for 71% of the carbon dioxide discharges, 74% of the particulate matter emanations, and 55% of the nitrogen oxide outflows from street vehicles.
We need to act to save our earth! Let’s all join India to make our earth a better place to live!
