India will be home to over 600 million urban dwellers by 2030. The increasing demand for vehicles has put considerable pressure on infrastructure, especially roads, which transport two-thirds of all freight and 90% of passenger traffic. Air pollution is a major concern in Indian cities aggravating the public health emergency of massive proportions with road transport being a significant contributor to urban ambient air pollution. Another challenge that arises with the increasing number of private vehicles on the road is the high dependence on fossil fuels, which continues to witness an uptrend.
