India’s transportation minister threatens to bulldoze car manufacturers if they don’t supply alternative fuel vehicles

In India, the transportation minister gave auto manufacturers a stark warning to start switching to cars that run on alternative fuels and electricity or risk a shrinking market with no recompense for switching late or failing to switch. With the government focused on reducing fossil fuel imports and pollution, he said he doesn’t mind “bulldozing” to get his way. The push towards second generation ethanol has led to 15 projects under development while his ministry is finalizing a policy to boost electric charging stations for vehicles.
