With millions of cars zipping the roads of India, one question arises in the minds of environmentalists – what would be the impact of these cars on worsening the current pollution crisis? The amount of smoke that cars emit every day is a warning sign for times to come, especially with global warming on the rise. At this juncture, Dr. Ponnapula Sanjeeva Prasad, also known as Goldstone Prasad, is trying his best to advocate to switch electric vehicles the go-to mode of transportation in India not only to protect the environment but best way to fight unreliable supply and prices of petroleum products.

When asked about electric vehicles, he said, “2020 was a pretty successful year when it comes to the sale of electric vehicles in India. This goes to show that people are now more concerned than ever about the environment. This is the change that we wanted to bring. I’m confident that if we continue to increase the sales figures of EVs, we will sooner or later be able to combat global warming."
Public awareness is one of the biggest challenges that Dr. Prasad and his team have faced over the years. Most people don’t know the concept of running vehicles on electricity though Electric Cars were in existence in 1915 itself. They worry about what they would do if the battery runs out when they are on a trip. Dr. Prasad believes that educating thousands of people isn’t easy, but it will happen in the next few years.
