Abstract [en]

INTRODUCTION: In India, internal combustion (IC) engines are the main concern, due to

the exhaustion of natural fossil fuelled buses. These are the three major factors which is

considered as an urgency to find an alternate solution. First, the energy and emission trends

from transports. Second, efficient urban infrastructures, such as mass transit system. Third, the

policies to adopt the cleaner and efficient technologies such as electric vehicles and other

available alternate fuels. This made the Indian government to think about adopting electric

vehicles as a mode of public transportation.

PURPOSE: By initiating the use of electric buses this thesis will assist the three state transport

corporations in India who are willing to initiate use of electric bus by overcoming their barriers.

Furthermore, this research will be an implication for automotive industries in India towards

their diffusion of electric buses.

FRAMEWORK: Electric buses usage has been a major part of this diffusion process where it

helped the authors to analyse how important it is. Adding to this the different perceived

attributes of innovation from Rogers model has been analysed in this research to find out the

different factors affecting towards the diffusion of electric buses.

METHODOLOGY: This study uses the case study method to study the diffusion of electric

buses in three municipalities. Primary data has been gathered through semi-structured

interviews with representatives from the municipalities and suppliers. In Addition, secondary

data, such as press releases from the municipalities and suppliers, has been collected

CONCLUSION: It is been concluded that the adoption of electric buses is one of the major

solution which will help the country carbon emission rate to go low with the technicalities

involved in the electric buses. In addition to that if the private and municipality transports plan

to expand their fleet of electric buses, complexity and nature of social system are the one of the

major attributes which should be considered initially during the diffusion of electric buses.

LIMITATIONS: This research has a limit in the role of internal organisation (Government or

Companies) of the municipalities, supplier’s business model, policy related issues between the

municipality and the government has not been analysed. All these limitations in turn is a future

research for the further researchers.
