From 2025, all new vehicles sold in India will need to be E20-compliant​

India is aiming to sell only petrol blended to an extent of 20 per cent with ethanol (E20) from 2025-26. According to officials in the know, all new vehicles sold in the country will need to be E20-compliant from 2025. This move may force automakers to reconfigure their existing petrol vehicles to operate using the blended fuel.

Speaking to journalists a day after the Union Cabinet hiked the ethanol procurement price, Petroleum Secretary Tarun Kapoor said: “The target is to only sell E20 petrol across the country from 2025. E20 petrol will be introduced from 2023.

Not ‘Indian’ per say, but still worth noticing as Norton is now owned by TVS.
New owner, new boss, new factory , new investment and new products
Looks very small but Preety neat setup. I think they are not aiming for mass market products.
Unlike previous owner which was vary flamboyant guy, TVS is very value based company. Hope to see JLR kind of turnaround for this iconic British brand.
