India said Friday it will reduce import duties on certain electric vehicles produced by automakers that have pledged to invest at least $500 million over three years and begin domestic production.

The policy will lead to increased competition for domestic automakers from companies like Tesla and VinFast, which are seeking to enter the world's third-largest auto market amid slowing global growth in electric vehicles.

Last year, electric models accounted for about 2% of India's total car sales, and the government wants to increase that to 30 percent by 2030.
