Car rental platform Zoomcar partners with Mahindra Electric, the e-vehicle arm of Mahindra. The tie-up allows Mahindra Electric to deploy twenty e20 Plus cars on Zoomcar’s platform in Hyderabad. The move helps Mahindra popularize its e-vehicle segment across Telangana.
The partnership includes a larger financing arrangement between Mahindra and Zoomcar with EV financing options for the latter.
“Today, in collaboration with Zoomcar, we have introduced the e2o Plus on the self-drive platform in Hyderabad. Through this initiative, we will provide a way for the people of Telangana to experience the many benefits of EVs”, said Mahesh Babu, CEO, Mahindra Electric.
Mahindra Electric will also provide fast charging services for Zoomcar customers to enhance their experience. The cars are equipped with fast charging facility.
“The rollout of EVs at scale coupled with best-in-class fast charging infrastructure is an extension of the Hyderabad government’s vision for a cleaner, greener India. Zoomcar is pleased to partner with the Mahindra Electric team once again to help accelerate the transition to an all-electric urban mobility model.”
This is a first partnership between two major companies to promote e-vehicles across India. Both the companies are planning to set up similar models in Delhi and Chandigarh next year.
