Hero Electric, India’s leading e-scooter company, announced on Monday that it is going to join forces with a last-mile delivery solutions provider, Turtle Mobility and will deliver over 1,000 electric scooters by the end of 2022. The alliance is another step towards Hero Electric’s efforts to further the electronic (EV) transition in India, with special attention to the last mile delivery segment. The company is looking forward to converting 35% of its sales from the B2B segment.
We constantly strive to quicken the pace of transition to e-mobility and push forward the same through B2B partnerships to strengthen the EV ecosystem across India. This partnership is another step to boost the rapidly growing logistics and delivery industry and steer our commitment to carbon-free mobility by electrifying the segment.”~ Sohinder Gill, CEO, Hero Electric
There has been a recent directive from the Delhi Government for all fleet aggregators (across e-commerce, food delivery and cab services sectors) to completely electrify their last-mile delivery fleet. Soon this directive is expected to be implied throughout the country. Hero Electric is making constant efforts to address the segment’s challenges by partnering with numerous B2B startups for the supply of electric scooters.
Stating that it is only a matter of time for such scooters to become widely relevant in the country across e-commerce companies for last-mile deliveries, Gupta said, “It will also help us to generate work opportunities for self-employed individuals in the informal sector by offering them a more affordable and easily accessible alternative to ICE vehicles.”
Hero Electric provides flexible, modular and versatile electric scooters which give longer mileage and low cost of ownership. Their high-speed scooters are becoming increasingly popular considering their lower carbon footprint.
