Trade Mission: India

Chennai, Pune and New Delhi

The EV market in India is estimated to be valued at $7.09 billion by 2025 and expecting to have 45-50 million EVs on the road by 2030.

Indian companies are looking for collaboration opportunities in the electrification and hydrogen value chain with UK companies and so SMMT is supporting the Department for International Trade to bring a UK Delegation to three cities in India and to the Auto Expo Components Show to explore opportunities focusing on:

  • Battery & controllers
  • Motors & controllers
  • Alternate battery chemistry
  • Light weight structures
  • Hydrogen fuel cells
  • Automotive electronics / sensors
