Here is a really positive story from India ..
This e-auto initiative was reportedly kicked off at a Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) conference titled 'e-Automotive R&D 2007: The Opportunities Ahead' by R Chidambaram, principal scientific advisor to the Goverment of India, and B Ramalinga Raju, chairman and founder, Satyam Computer Services.
The digital car initiative aims to bring together the IT industry, the automotive industry, R&D groups, various industrial associations, and universities and educational institutions with Satyam Computers to act as prime integrator. A consortium of different players will combine efforts towards bringing out India's first car of this kind.
Raju said the 'HERA FxV', once completed, would be a demonstration of India's technological capabilities, and draw much needed attention of global players towards India as an innovation-led design hub.
