India, ranked as the second most polluted country globally, faces challenges in achieving climate goals due to its commercial transport system contributing to harmful vehicle smoke. Ashok Leyland, Asia's fourth largest truck maker, plans to launch its electric commercial fleet in the next 6-12 months. The company also aims to produce autonomous electric trucks for Indian ports and invest in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. However, transitioning to cleaner vehicles is hindered by higher costs and lack of charging infrastructure. Incentives and better financing options are needed to promote electric trucks in India.
