Amazon.com Inc.’s Indian unit said on Tuesday it would deploy nearly 100 three-wheeled electric vehicles made by Mahindra Electric in seven cities across the country. The move will help Amazon India meet its goal of employing 10,000 electric vehicles in its delivery vehicle fleet by 2025, as announced by the company in January last year.
Mahindra Electric’s “Treo Zor”, a three-wheeled vehicle powered by a lithium-ion battery, has been deployed in major metropolitan cities such as Bengaluru, New Delhi and Hyderabad, Amazon India said in a statement.
Mahindra Electric Mobility Ltd, part of the Indian hotel-vehicle conglomerate Mahindra Group, offers a range of electric vehicles such as rickshaws, sedans as well as passenger and cargo vans.
It was not immediately clear how many electric vehicles manufactured by Mahindra Electric would be among the 10,000 vehicles.
