The move has also been initiated due to rise in prices of petrol and diesel. The vehicles used for government transport and administration also run-on petrol and diesel and their expenses are borne by the governments. Therefore, in such a situation, governments are also trying to replace more and more vehicles with electric vehicles (EVs).

Few days ago, Aam Aadmi Party took to his Twitter handle and shared a short clip and wrote, “Selfie le le re,” and added, “While you're enjoying a ride in Delhi's new electric buses, take a selfie, post it with #iRideEBus and grab a chance to Win an iPad.”
