Mainland China NEV Market Outlook
China NEV development has always been a hot topic in the automotive industry. Starting from 2021, under the phase 5 CAFC regulatory pressure, the conventional powertrain CO2 reduction technology is continuously evolving, but that will not be enough to achieve compliance. Electrification is expected, with more vehicles entering the market, especially NEVs.
For NEV development, in the short term, with full support from the Chinese government, the development of the NEV market highly depends on fiscal subsidies. While in the long term, the “carrot” will be replaced by the “stick”, the future stringent ‘Dual Credit’ regulation will play an important role in pushing the development of NEVs.

Approach to Reduce Carbon Footprints in Indian Automotive Industry
India set targets for 2030 to reduce the GHG intensity of GDP. India is already ahead of the trajectory to meet the INDC’s and is one of the few countries which is already on the path to limit the temperature rise to 1.5degC.
However, a deficit in local fuel reserves has always been high on GOI’s radar due to the Energy security issue. Limiting the imports of crude oil is one of the key targets set by the Government of India to limit the foreign exchange outgo.
The Case Study:
Many initiatives have been taken by the Auto Industry to reduce crude oil imports in the past. Fuel Efficiency improvement of vehicles driven mainly by customer requirements and lately regulation of fuel efficiency on Passenger vehicles are a few of those initiatives, besides educating customers on fuel-efficient driving and maintenance tips.
Besides this Industry has been working hand in hand with the Government of India to develop powertrains to run on Alternate fuels. Ethanol blending was introduced in 2003 with E5 blends and ramped up to E10 from 2008 and will spread across the country by end of the year. E20 introduction is planned much ahead of the BioFuel policy released in 2018. Similarly, on the alternate fuels based on Gas, retro-fitment of CNG systems was done since the early 2000’s on a limited scale and in some pockets of the country. Maruti realized in the early 2000’s the potential of developing CNG Engines for passenger vehicles and increase the acceptance of the fuel among customers. CNG powertrains, with CO2 lower by around 20% from the base Gasoline engine was a low-cost answer for hybridization of powertrains, which was happening in the developed markets.
What started as an initiative to reduce the crude oil imports today has taken a turn towards reduction of GHG and decarbonization of the transport sector. Ethanol-based Flex-fuel vehicles, as being discussed for the future, can mark the start of usage of carbon-neutral fuels, while already CNG-based vehicles today are utilizing the Bio-CNG fuel being produced in small towns and countryside, a fuel which is carbon negative in its true sense.The case study will cover the seeding of the initiative years back to the development of a complete economy based on an Alternate fuel model and its relevance in the Indian context.

Panel Discussion: Accelerating the Net-Zero Transition Enabled from Transportation Policy and Electrification
More large economies have committed to a net-zero carbon emissions future by or near the mid of 21st century. According to IEA, transportation is responsible for 24% (est. 8.2 Gt in 2019) of direct CO2 emissions from fuel combustion globally, among which road vehicles account for nearly three-quarters. To move toward net-zero plans to phase out the sales of fossil-fuel-powered vehicles, replacing them with zero electric vehicles (ZEVs), is a key element. However, considering the overall lifecycle CO2 emissions renewable energy choices to power ZEVs do play a more significant role in achieving net-zero, along with the regulatory mechanisms being the main driver for ZEV ramping up in key regions (e.g., China, EU, selected states in the US).
This panel session highlights the multiple factors that are crucial to collaborative and effective transportation policies to further promote electrification, clean energy, and ultimately the net-zero target.
