Keeping in mind the importance of Indian market, LeTV, a multinational company based in Beijing, announced its electric car plan recently, when its founder, Mr. Jia Yueting, announced on its microblog account that LeTV will make electric vehicles, and the project is called SEE (Super Electric Eco-system). "The SEE Project will duplicate LeTV's complete vertically-integrated ecosystem and redefine the automobiles industry. We try to make the best internet and smart electric vehicles and build an internet-based vehicle eco-system," said Jia's microblog.The nation recently joined the Electric Vehicles Initiative, a forum for global cooperation on the development and deployment of Electric Vehicles.
The vehicle will equip LeTV's intelligent internet-based LeUI system with a 9 inch touch screen, and can interact with LeTV's other smart terminals. For example, LeTV's smart phones can control the vehicle and the vehicle can have a seamless interaction with LeTV's other eco-products.
Recent reports said that LeTV is working with Aston Martin and BAIC Motor Corporation in building its first electric vehicle. And LeTV's first model will have its debut show at Auto China 2016, the largest auto exhibition in China, from April 21 to 29th, 2016.
With organisations like LeTV contributing across the globe, India's target of deploying 5 to 7 million electric vehicles in the country by 2020 can be met. The nation is also looking to emphasize the importance of government incentives and coordination between industry and academia with a target of 400,000 passenger battery electric cars (BEVs) by 2020; thereby avoiding 120 million barrels of oil and 4 million tons of CO2.
