On the occasion of Earth Day, Mahindra Electric, announced a collaboration for a pilot EV project in Hyderabad with the intention to replicate the same model in other cities soon. The pilot will see Meru deploy a fleet of eVeritos, the all-electric sedan by Mahindra. The Mahindra eVerito will be available for booking in Hyderabad through Meru’s mobile apps, website, call centre, and will also be available at the Meru Zone at Hyderabad airport.
The services will be available at the same fare as governed by the Telangana Government’s radio taxi fares for sedans. Mahindra Electric has been pioneering the EV movement in India for close to a decade, while Meru has been running their entire fleet on green fuel for the past 11 years in cities where CNG is available. Both organisations have been taking conscious steps towards environmentally friendly practices and this association is in sync with these philosophies. Mahindra Electric is India’s only EV manufacturer with indigenously developed EV technologies that have won global accolades. The Mahindra Group has one of the most diversified portfolios of electric vehicles with the e2oPlus hatch, the eVerito sedan, the eSupro minivan and panel vans and its electric rickshaw, the e-Alfa Mini.
