China and India, the world’s two largest greenhouse gas emitters, are keen on joint ventures in manufacturing electric vehicles as companies from both countries held talks at a three-day event in Beijing.

India’s leading automakers such as Maruti Suzuki, Tata, TVS and industry associations participated at the 5th China EV100 Forum in Beijing where e-vehicle manufacturing firms from across the world were present.

The three-day event, which concluded on Sunday, was organised by China EV100, a private electric vehicle association of over 200 leading Chinese electric mobility industries.

Anil Srivastava, Principal Advisor at NITI Aayog, who headed the Indian delegation, met Chen Qingtai, President of China EV100.

However, some Chinese firms believe India will surpass China in terms of demand for these vehicles.

Earlier, in an interview to IANS, the General Manager of China’s leading electric vehicle company, Sunra, Victor Lu, said he sees India emerging as the world’s biggest market for electric bikes.
