Mahindra Electric To Supply EVs to Amazon India

Amazon India announced its partnership with Mahindra Electric to further strengthen its commitment towards electric mobility in the country.

In 2020, Amazon India had announced that its fleet of delivery vehicles will include 10,000 electric vehicles (EVs) by 2025 in India. These EVs are in addition to the global commitment of 100,000 electric vehicles in the delivery fleet by 2030 announced in the Climate Pledge signed by Amazon.

This partnership with Mahindra Electric is an important step towards India’s progress in the e-mobility industry to achieve its environmental sustainability goals.

The Mahindra Treo Zor vehicles have been deployed in seven cities so far including Bengaluru, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Bhopal, Indore and Lucknow with Amazon India’s network of Delivery Service Partners. Significant progress in the Indian e-mobility industry in the last few years has led to advanced technology, and superior motor and battery components.

The Mahindra Treo Zor was launched in October 2020 with an advanced Lithium-ion Battery and ease of charging, making it easy for delivery partners to charge the vehicles in various locations. Mahindra Treo Zor has been designed and developed in India and offers reliable performance.

Additionally, it features drive by wire technology for a fatigue-free driving experience, reduced loading and unloading time, and offers the longest-in-industry wheelbase making the overall safe and stable.

The government’s focus to encourage the adoption of electric vehicles in the country with awareness campaigns such as ‘Go Electric’, and steps towards setting up charging infrastructure with the FAME 2 policy has helped the company accelerate and map its vision for EVs in India.

In September 2019, Amazon became the first signatory of the Climate Pledge, which states that the company will be net-zero carbon by 2040 across its businesses – a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement’s goal of 2050.

Nitin Gadkari, Minister of Road Transport & Highways, Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises, Government of India said “Clean mobility powered by clean energy is an important element in the action to prevent climate change. The partnership between Amazon India and Mahindra Electric is a welcome step which reaffirms India’s significant progress in the e-mobility industry and highlights the role of auto makers and e-commerce companies to achieve our environmental sustainability goals.”

Akhil Saxena, VP, Customer Fulfilment Operations, APAC, MENA & LATAM, Amazon said, “We are committed to building a supply chain that will minimize the environmental impact of our operations. The expansion of our Electric Vehicle fleet to 10,000 vehicles by 2025 is an integral milestone in our journey to become a sustainability leader in the industry.”

Mahesh Babu, MD & CEO, Mahindra Electric Mobility Ltd said “We are proud to partner with Amazon in deploying Mahindra Treo Zor EV in their delivery partners’ fleet. We believe, this will redefine India’s logistics and last-mile delivery needs and at the same time help Mahindra and Amazon to achieve our sustainability goals.” (MT)
