Mahindra Electric and Zoomcar, shared mobility platform, have announced the extension of their unique service of offering EVs as shared mobility solution in Mumbai.
Under this, the companies are set to offer 50 e2oPlus, Mahindra’s all-electric city smart car on the Zoomcar platform in Maharashtra and will touch around 100 EVs in the next quarter.
The vehicles were flagged off on the platform in the presence of Hon’ble Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Shri Devendra Fadnavis at the iconic monument of Gateway of India, Mumbai.
The initiative is aimed at promoting connected, shared and electric mobility as a model, in line with the recommendations in the NITI Aayog report on the government’s 2030 vision. Mumbai being the second largest hub of the country and an important business centre, makes for a good choice for this initiative.
This announcement also comes as one of the first initiatives taken in the light of Maharashtra’s EV policy. The vehicles under this initiative are financed as a part of larger financing arrangement between Zoomcar and LeasePlan, which will see Zoomcar obtain customised EV financing. Mahindra Finance continues to be financing partners in various other cities for Zoomcar & Mahindra Electric for EV financing.
