This 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. Mysuru is being developed as a holistic EV ecosystem, in alignment with the Karnataka government’s EV policy which envisages going beyond metros. This is the first of its kind EV policy drafted by a state in the country.
Speaking on the occasion Mahesh Babu, CEO, Mahindra Electric said,
Mahindra Electric has been at the forefront of making electric mobility a reality in India not just through electric vehicles but also technology and mobility solution development. We are happy to be partnering with Z00mcar to promote EV adoption in India. This initiative is aligned with Mysuru vision of being a clean and green city. We are looking forward to the state developing EV infrastructure as per the Karnataka state EV policy to further promote shared electric mobility in the region.
Mahindra Electric is also offering fast charging services to enhance the EV experience for Z00mcar’s customers. Currently, charging units have been installed at Country Inn and Garuda Mall, which can be used by EV users. With the government’s support, the plan is to have more units installed at key locations in the future. The organisations also intend to replicate this model in Chandigarh, Delhi and Hyderabad soon.
