E-commerce primary Amazon India on Monday announced its cavalcade of delivery automobiles in the nation will include 10,000 EVs by 2025.
Amazon’s rival, Flipkart had in June last year said it aims to restore 40 percent of its delivery vans with electric vehicles (EVs) by March this year. The Walmart-owned firm has deployed EVs in cities like Delhi, Hyderabad, and Bengaluru.
Amazon, in an announcement, said it captained electric vehicles in several cities across India in 2019 and is now widening this initiative across the nation.
It added that learnings from the pilot have helped the company create scalable and long-term EV variants to build this large fleet.
The announcement comes days after the American e-tail giant had announced an excellent investment of $1 billion for digitizing small and medium businesses, and achievement of one million jobs by 2025.
“The fleet of 10,000 EVs – including three-wheeler and four-wheeler vehicles – has been designed and manufactured by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in India,” Amazon noted in its statement.
