HYDERABAD: The State of Telangana has sold only about 6,316 electric vehicles (EVs) which are supported under the Faster Adoption of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (FAME) India scheme.

However, the sales under FAME scheme in the State are less when compared to major states like Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Delhi, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh as of December 9.

On the other hand, EV charging stations installed in the State under FAME are the second highest in the country. After Delhi, which has the highest number of EV stations (94), Telangana has 56. A total of 452 EV charging stations were installed under FAME scheme across the country.
