Mahindra Electric, Zoomcar launch EVs for shared mobility in Hyderabad

Mahindra and Uber have joined hands to deploy electric vehicles in India.

The company, which has already tied up with Uber's rival Ola to build an electric mass mobility ecosystem in Nagpur, will deploy "hundreds of electric vehicles in Delhi and Hyderabad" under the new partnership.

A policy on electric vehicles to which the Telangana government is giving shape to facilitate their use and attract the manufacturers is likely to be launched next month. The initial three months will be used to get the infrastructure in place for seamless trips. Mahindra Electric's vehicles on the Uber platform will include the e20Plus hatchback and the eVerito sedan.

Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said, "Electric vehicle adoption is clearly gaining momentum in India".

Through this collaboration, driver partners on the Uber app can avail of a package which will include Mahindra electric vehicles at competitive prices, attractive financing and insurance premiums as well as comprehensive mainteance packages from Mahindra and its associates.

The total number of EVs sold globally was 6-7 lakh units at the end of 2016 and only about 2000 EVs in India.

The EV market is now small but once it starts growing, Mahindra will ramp up the production at its facility in Zaheerabad in Telangana, he said.

"We see a key role for high efficiency vehicle technologies and therefore, believe that this collaboration with Mahindra, the pioneers in the electric vehicles space, will be truly beneficial not just for Uber, but for our driver partners, riders and the cities we operate in", he added.
