The vehicles will be deployed by e-commerce companies across Hyderabad, Delhi NCR, Bengaluru and Chennai in 6-8 months
Hyderabad: Euler Motors, a commercial electric vehicle (EV) maker, said that BigBasket, Flipkart, Udaan, along with other e-commerce, hyperlocal and B2B delivery players, have placed an order for 2,500 EVs for intra-city deliveries. These companies will deploy the EVs across Hyderabad, Delhi NCR, Bengaluru and Chennai in the next 6-8 months.
The Delhi-based OEM is set to launch its first three-wheeler L5 cargo vehicle around festive season. Currently, the company is plying over 300 vehicles as part of a pre-launch pilot with ecommerce, FMCG companies for intra-city delivery in Delhi-NCR.
Hari Menon, co-founder, BigBasket said, “With the exponential growth in consumer acceptance of online deliveries and BigBasket’s dedication to electric mobility, we are committed to delivering smooth supply chains and enabling sustainable mobility. Euler Motors has demonstrated compelling advantages and a unique value set on these counts, stemming from superior technology, their design for Indian conditions and relentless focus on user experience.”
Euler Motors has already clocked over 10 million kilometres and helped reduce carbon emissions of over 1,000 tonnes, which is equivalent to 1 million litres of saved fuel.
Sujeet Kumar, co-founder, Udaan stated, “The full stack approach that Euler Motors has taken to help companies transition to electric mobility has given us a lot of comfort in day-to-day operations of our fleet. We have seen a significant rise in operational efficiency and tangible savings as their electric vehicle offers a higher payload capacity when compared to any competing ICE vehicle.”
To cater to the massive demand from ecommerce, Euler Motors also plans to expand its production capacity to enable fulfilment of the projected demand growth. “Our vision is to transform the commercial EV segment and its impact on India and set global benchmarks. We will soon focus on expanding our capacity and footprint to better meet our customers in more locations and in scale expectations,” said Saurav Kumar, founder & CEO, Euler Motors.
