A viable remedy for lowering hazardous greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint is through the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs). Electric vehicles minimize fossil fuel reliance and ozone-damaging compounds by supporting large-scale renewable deployment. However, EV modeling and manufacturing are continuing to change despite extensive study on the qualities and characteristics that are evaluated from time to time. This is due to restrictions on EV adoption and their charging infrastructure. The present study addresses the numerous modeling approaches and optimization strategies used in studies of EV, hybrid, plug-in hybrid, battery, and fuel cell EV penetration and adoption rates in the market. The study is unique for a developing country like India in that it addresses crucial challenges in adoption and the lack of charging facilities for EV consumers. In addition, when renewable energy sources are unavailable, the development and deployment of the vehicle-to-grid concept is an innovative strategy to provide auxiliary supply to the grid. It is concluded that considering the unique features of EVs is vital to their adoption and mobility.
