Mahindra Electric will deploy 50 e2oPlus electric vehicles on Zoomcar – India’s largest shared mobility platform. The e2oPlus will be available on both the self-drive rental as well as ZAP subscribe program.
Those opting for ZAP Subscribe, can have the e2oPlus at Rs 9,999 per month. The subscription program includes free insurance, free maintenance and 24X7 road assistance.
The first few vehicles were flagged off in the presence of Rajendra Jagtap, CEO – Pune Smart City Development Corporation Ltd (PSCDCL). The companies said that Pune is an upcoming IT centre and is an important hub in the state of Maharashtra, and hence makes for an excellent choice for this service.
Mahesh Babu, CEO, Mahindra Electric said – “This initiative comes as one of the first steps after the announcement of Maharashtra’s EV policy and we are positive that it will contribute to the state’s mission of rapid adoption of EVs.”
Greg Moran, Co-Founder and CEO, Zoomcar said “We’re thrilled to once again partner with Mahindra Electric to bring innovative, green mobility solutions to the people up Pune. First through our PEDL cycle service and now with our electric vehicle launch, Pune continues to demonstrate strong leadership in supporting innovative first and last mile urban mobility solutions.”
The vehicles under this initiative are financed as a part of larger financing arrangement between Zoomcar and LeasePlan which will see Zoomcar obtain customized EV financing. Mahindra Finance continues to be financing partners in various other cities for Zoomcar & Mahindra Electric for EV financing, the company said.
Earlier this year, Mahindra announced to be investing Rs 176 Crore in Zoomcar.
