With the New Year, come new achievements, this time in electric mobility. Mahindra Electric and Lithium Urban Technologies, today celebrated the significant milestone of 1,000 Mahindra electric vehicles clocking 100 million e-kilometers (ekms). India’s largest zero emission service for employee transportation, Lithium Urban Technologies had partnered with Mahindra Electric in 2015.
Having clocked 100 million ekms, with over 500 Mahindra electric vehicles (EVs) running more than 1 lakh ekms each, the partnership aims to transform employee transportation and increase the adoption of electric mobility in the country.
What started off with a small fleet of 10 Mahindra e20s, has now increased to 1000 Mahindra EVs. Together the companies have aided in 20,000+ MT of CO2 abatement and saved 8,500,000+ litres of fuel.
Dr. Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, said: "We are delighted to cross this milestone of 1,000 Mahindra EVs and 100 million ekms together with Lithium. Our partnership is aimed at increasing the large-scale adoption of EVs and bringing a positive change in consumers’ daily commute. Going forward, Mahindra's expanding portfolio of EVs in both 3 and 4 wheelers across multiple price points will transform the way India travels."
The partnership between the two companies has been bringing about a positive change in consumers’ lives, by changing the way they commute. A greener and more sustainable option, initiatives like this, are aimed at bringing rapid transformation to the overall EV adoption rate in the country.
