April 2: India is inching towards achieving the objective of becoming a fully Electric Vehicle (EV) nation by 2030 with optimistic sales figures and the unveiling of a host of new models by automobile manufacturers.

According to a recent report by research firm JMK Research and Analytics, the consolidated sales of EVs in the country clocked 50,000 units in December last year, registering a 240 percent Year Over Year(YoY) growth as compared to December 2020.

With the Omicron lead wave subsiding coupled with declining technology costs, EV shipment figures in India are expected to continue to reach new heights in the coming months. The segment’s growth will also be fueled by the emergence of new disruptive business models aimed towards the common objective of driving EV adoption in the country.

While initiatives such as the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles (FAME) Phase II scheme which boasts a budget of Rs 10,000 crore to offer subsidies to EV buyers across different segments are in place, the need of the hour is to offer hasslefree, customised financing options to consumers.

According to a recent report by the country’s apex public policy think tank, NITI Ayog, financial institutions would have to lend an estimated Rs 40,000 crores by 2025 and Rs 3.7 lakh crores by 2030 to drive the adoption of EVs among masses.

Banks and NBFCs are also reluctant to finance EVs owing to associated business models and asset risks and the nascency of the EV sector. Also in some cases, where financing is available, a significant chunk of EV buyers do not align with the terms of the loan(high-interest rates, lower tenures) as compared to ICE vehicles.

How startups like FINAYO are transforming the lending space

In such a scenario revolutionary startups like FINAYO which leverage cutting-edge technologies including AI and Machine Learning are paving the way to mitigate the financial bottlenecks in the country’s EV segment.

According to Mr Brajendra Singh Tomar, founder and CEO of FINAYO, different NBFCs prefer to finance different EV models ranging from two-wheelers to SUVs to commercial vehicles and FINAYO aims to bring all of under one umbrella to cater to a larger pool of EV buyers in the country.

Mr Tomar also opines that the impressive Fi-Men solution which offers a range of loan offers to consumers from different financial institutions with just the scan of QR code is a win-win proposition for the OEMs, lenders and customers.

Leveraging trend setting technologies, FINAYO’S team has ensured that the platform offers customised financing options based on both the EVs as well as the credit history of EV buyers. The platform utilises the state of the art Asset Business Rule Engine and Lender Business Rule Engine in thai regard. With this Banks and NBFCs garner a bird’s eye view on the spending behaviour of consumers to furnish them with convincing loan offers in a matter of minutes.

Prest Loans aims to collaborate with FINAYO to offload the tedious and complex process of customer risk and asset assessment for a swift and convenient buying experience for potential EV buyers. In our strategic collaboration, we would also like FINAYO to cover the untapped EV markets in the country for us to jointly accomplish India’s 2030 EV objective.
