Even though electric vehicles in India are still in their infancy, they are still attracting a lot of interest from the customers. However, the adoption of green hydrogen fueled vehicles in the country is still near zero. In India, automakers are yet to introduce hydrogen fuel cell vehicles that are completely emission free. The main reason for this is the expensive development cost, which increases the purchase cost of the vehicles. Along with this, the production of hydrogen energy is also an expensive deal.
