Thanks Abhishek for succinct article. My opinion and you did touch upon it although briefly in point No-3 is charging infra . This is the biggest blocker even for households looking for their 2nd car , for first car resale value and battery replacement economics etc definitely comes in picture.

However the lack of DC charging and fast charging is real issue. In cities ppl living in apartments can’t pull out charging points from their meters even if they can afford as it’s simply not feasible and societies providing the charge facilities in adequate numbers is equally unfeasible.

Thanks for the insight! But something that is worth mentioning on this topic is about battery management and recycling. Currently, the battery for 2 and 4W is around 6 years so what tends to happen in China is that post this period the battery is recycled. Apparently, the tech China has for it is really great. Also, something that goes unnoticed is that China is also really good at Battery management. When the battery looses 20% of its storage, the tech in China can refurbish the battery extending its battery life. At 40% loss of storage some level of refurbishment can still take place. Therefore, once battery recycling and management tech improves in India, a circular economy for battery is established. Then, we can solve a lot of cost and financing related problems.
