I am not sure although, every country needs to revisit the ‘Roadmap for the future’ following this unexpected pandemic which has hit the global economy pretty badly. Regaining even 50% of the economy of 2019 (before Covid-19) would consume some time. But, preparing the plan for the future with a certain stricter climate change target to different countries need to look at every sector of prospect to induce appreciable reduction in GHG, especially carbon dioxide. Countries like Bhutan and Costa Rica may be exempted as they are carbon neutral countries. Automobile sector more importantly attracts a greater attention as commuting is pretty important not only for work (this may get considerably reduced with the digital functioning providing many benefits) but more importantly, goods transportation. Although there have been efforts already initiated towards electric cars/two wheelers the demand for which would pick up sooner or later depending upon the strategic locations for ‘Recharge’ which is very important for the promotion to survive. The battery size, although looks smaller for these commodities, heavy duty electric trucks need not only a careful attention on the battery type/size, the crucial factor that needs greater attention is the strategic recharge locations as the journey needs to pass through tough terrain. My guess therefore is that we need to perhaps wait for another five years from now (maybe 2025-26) before we see this option available in at least, India
