This is a first of its kind report produced by GameChanger Law Advisors, in collaboration with  Speciale Invest, a leading Indian seed-stage venture capital fund.

This report is a true collaboration between lawyers, investors, and electric mobility industry operators. The work on this report has been inspired by, and drawn from, the work GameChanger Law Advisors have done with a Lightspeed-funded EV battery tech start-up, Exponent Energy .

The report examines the legal landscape for EV battery packs in India and maps it against regulations in California, European Union (EU), and the United Kingdom (UK). The review of regulations in jurisdictions other than India have been based purely on the text of regulations and literature that can be accessed in the public domain.

The Report culminates in suggestions and recommendations for Indian policy makers, in the hope that the Report will trigger a series of constructive conversations amongst various stakeholders, and that it can also lead to positive legal and regulatory changes, aimed at helping India in its shift towards electric vehicles and, more broadly, in the fight against climate change.
