Abstract: Automotive pollutants include CO, NOx, HC, PM (mostly soot) & SOx. India has decided to implement BS-VI norms by April 2020. Auto sector is also likely to switch towards electric mobility. In this research a comparative study in terms of financial and social-economic is made between challenges to be faced by auto sector shifting toward electric mobility and making BS VI compliant vehicles. For the analysis the e2o Plus of Mahindra & Mahindra and the Alto 800 LXI of Maruti Suzuki which are similar in size and volume, but powered by two different sources were chosen. It was observed that shorter mileage, frequent battery recharging, frequent maintenance and least charging infrastructure are areas which have to be addressed by auto industry for commercial viability. Lithium ion battery is least suitable and sodium ion battery is under research trials. This research recommends a hybrid model to be adopted before switching to electric mobility.
