Despite what many believe, the ICE-vehicles are here to stay, albeit in more cleaner and fuel agnostic. With each passing day, while there are significant innovations taking place in the electric vehicle space, the IC-vehicle industry especially in the higher tonnage and usage space, will continue to see introduction of newer energy sources. Ram speaks about introducing ICE-hydrogen engine, CNG and LNG powertrain in India.
