Global Fireside Chat Online: China's EV Revolution: Lessons for India
Please join us on March 12 for this exclusive online lecture with CEIBS Assistant Professor of Accounting Venkat Peddireddy who will explore India’s lessons from China’s electric vehicle revolution.
About the lecture
Over the last decade, China has seen a meteoric rise in the use of electric vehicles and has emerged as an electric vehicle powerhouse. In 2022, electric vehicle sales in China constituted around 50% of the global total. Currently, more than 300 million people in China own e-scooters. This was mainly fueled by government support as well as fierce domestic competition pushing prices lower and demand up. As such, they have been able to build global brands of reliable quality at affordable price. This online lecture will offer an overview of China's EV journey and how India could make EV a viable option for its vast automobile market.
Following the lecture, Prof. Peddireddy will be joined by CEIBS Indian alumni to discuss their MBA experiences, takeaways, and career progression since graduating.
