The state governments of many cities are contributing heavily in the adoption of electric mobility in India. For this, the state governments have converted their bus-based transport system to electric. This has been further accelerated by the Government of India’s Rapid Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles in India (FAME) Phase-II scheme, the company said.
GreenCell Mobility will create a ‘Green Route’ with 12-metre buses in the state. The company informed that over a period, 10 buses will run between Pune and Aurangabad as an extension of the Pune-Ahmednagar route, while 12 buses will run on the Pune-Kolhapur route.
In addition, 18 buses will ply between Pune and Nashik and another 10 coaches will be deployed on the Pune-Solapur intercity route. The company also said that a total of 3,743 tonnes of CO2 will be saved from tailpipe emissions over the lifetime of these buses.
According to the press release, Greencell is building a platform to provide e-mobility-as-a-service (eMaaS), for which the company is initially using electric buses and affordable on-demand shared transportation, charging infrastructure, and is striving to provide products for e-mobility.<!–
