Mahindra, Meru to launch pilot EV Taxis in Hyderabad
Hyderabad : Mahindra Electric and cab service Meru have announced a joint electric vehicle (EV) project for Hyderabad; which will later be expanded to other cities of India.
On the occasion of Earth Day, they released a joint statement claiming that MERU will deploy e-veritos as sedan cab in the city.
Speaking on the occasion, Mahindra Electric Chief Executive Mahesh Babu said: "This is definitely going to make it easier for the city to adopt EV technology and will also be in line with our constant endeavour to make EVs more accessible to a larger urban population."
"We are now looking forward to working with Meru to get this project rolled out to more cities," he added.
Meru Chief Executive Nilesh Sangoi said: "Based on the experience from this pilot, we will expand this initiative to induct more EVs in our network in other cities that we operate in. Over the next four years, we intend to move major parts of our fleet to EVs."
Travellers will be able to book eVeritos in Hyderabad with the help of MERU mobile application.
The service will be offered at the same prices which have been governed by the Telangana government for sedan radio taxis.
