Delhi Will Soon Receive 1,000 Electric Vehicles For Commuters

A Memo of Understanding has been signed between SmartE and Mahindra to bring 1,000 pollution-free vehicles to Delhi.

Recently, SmartE and Mahindra Electric Mobility Ltd. have signed a memo of understanding (MoU) that will soon bring a large number of environmentally friendly source of mobility to Delhi – National Capital Region. Particularly, as in the MoU, Delhi will be receiving Mahindra Treo Yaari and Mahindra Treo three-wheel electric vehicles by March 2019.

The goal of signing this memo is to offer Delhi commuters a zero-emission last mile connectivity. Earlier this year, Mahindra released Treo Yaari and Treo electric vehicles, with a plan to provide electricity-powered vehicles across the country.

The collaboration between this company and SmartE has a mission to bring these vehicles into everyday use. If SmartE’s plans work out well, there will be around 10,000 of these electric vehicles on road by 2020.

At present, SmartE is in a partnership with Delhi Metro Rail Corp., as well as with other organizations in offering shared rides to citizens for last-mile trips. The memo of understanding between the two firms will follow this plan to serve commuters of Delhi Metro. At the same time, SmartE will invest in setting up more charging stalls as a supporting movement to the coming three-wheel vehicles of Mahindra.

The Delhi Cabinet, in July, also approved of 1,000 bus running on electricity for the Delhi-National Capital Region by 2019.

All the movements and plans here are to tackle the critical air pollution in the capital of India. According to reports by Central Pollution Control Board, Delhi has got an overall of 316 in the air quality index, which means the city’s air has fallen to the “very poor” quality. In particular, CPCB said there are 12 areas in Delhi to have “poor” air quality and 22 regions with “very poor” air quality.

If a region has an AQI between 0 and 50, its air quality is “good”, from 51 to 100 means “satisfactory”, from 101 to 200 means “moderate”, from 201 to 300 means “poor”, from 301 to 400 means “very poor”, and from 401 to 500 means “severe.”

With all these efforts, hopefully, New Delhi can stop the AQI from rising and gradually bring it down.
