E-commerce company Amazon India has tied up with Mahindra Electric to deploy electric vehicles for deliveries within the country. For the people not in know, in 2020, Amazon India declared that its fleet of delivery vehicles will include 10,000 electric vehicles (EVs) by 2025 in India. In fact, Amazon has also signed a climate pledge to use 1,00,000 electric vehicles globally in the delivery fleet by 2030. So, this partnership is a part of reinforcing its commitment towards electric mobility.
As a part of this partnership, hundreds of the Mahindra Treo Zor have been deployed across seven major cities of the country, including New Delhi, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Bhopal, Indore, and Lucknow. Commenting on the occasion, Akhil Saxena, VP of Amazon India said –
We are committed to building a supply chain that will minimize the environmental impact of our operations. The expansion of our Electric Vehicle fleet to 10,000 vehicles by 2025 is an integral milestone in our journey to become a sustainability leader in the industry. We continue to work with several OEMs to build a fleet of ‘Made in India’ electric vehicles that ensure sustainable and safe deliveries of customer orders, and this partnership with Mahindra Electric is a testament to our commitment.
