Development of CNG Powered CEVs

January 2021

Based on the advice from Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH), Government of India, a team was constituted within the ICEMA Technical Panel to conduct a techno-economic feasibility study on “Development of CNG-powered CEVs & kits to convert existing CEVs to CNG power”. The team held meetings both with internal stakeholders as well as with IDEMA that represents major engine manufactures. The team also discussed the adaptation of alternate power such as electric, hybrid, fuel cells, hydrogen for CEVs. The possibilities and challenges anticipated for implementing alternate power for CEVs were deliberated and the outcome of the meetings were shared with the Technical Panel members on January 20, 2021. This was further discussed with Minister for Road Transport and Highways and is being explored.
