    Mahindra to deploy electric vehicles with Uber in Hyderabad

    As part of a collaboration to introduce next-generation sustainable solutions in the shared mobility space, Mahindra has announced the deployment of its electric vehicles (EVs), in partnership with Uber, in Hyderabad. At the outset, the American ride-hailing service will induct 50 Mahindra EVs, including the e2o Plus hatchback and eVerito sedan, into its fleet and scale up thereafter. The companies have plans to roll out this arrangement across other Indian cities in the future.

    At the ceremonial inauguration, Mahesh Babu, CEO, Mahindra Electric, said, “As the pioneers of electric mobility in India, we have always been at the forefront of smart and sustainable mobility. Our collaboration with Uber is aimed at accelerating the large scale adoption of electric vehicles on shared mobility platforms, thereby driving a positive change in daily commute.”

    To make this project feasible, Mahindra has worked with public and private players who have set up around 30 charging points across the city. Additionally, to incentivise Uber’s driver partners to adopt the move towards sustainable mobility, they will be offered electric vehicles at competitive prices, attractive financing options and insurance premiums, comprehensive maintenance packages, as well as EV-related training from Mahindra.

    In February this year, Mahindra had also launched a new tech-based premium e-mobility service in Mumbai, called Glyd.
