Author : Rashika Rajan Singh 1 2

Date of Publication :22nd November 2021

Abstract: The gap between domestic crude oil production and consumption is widening. This, coupled with hardening of the crude prices, is leading to increase in the trade deficit. This poses a serious challenge to environment. Keeping this in mind a research is designed to study the perception of consumers towards buying of zero-emission vehicles in India. The study also considers the barriers to buying decision of consumers towards zero-emission vehicles. The study found that, the major barriers are lack of proper infrastructure, high prices, battery problems and limited rage of variety in the products.
