Amplus Solar Expands its Clean Mobility Fleet with Mahindra Electric's Zor Grand

Amplus Solar’s electric mobility vertical has signed an MoU with Mahindra Electric, India’s No. 1 Electric 3-wheeler company, to procure their Zor Grand, a brand-new breakthrough electric vehicle.

With this addition, Amplus Solar strengthens its fleet of clean vehicles, offering freight delivery to major e-commerce, on-demand logistics, and other enterprises in the country on various subscription models.

Zor Grand, from Mahindra Electric, is one of India’s most technologically advanced, low-carbon, three-wheeled small commercial vehicle, built for sustainable and intelligent transportation.

The agreement signifies a major step forward in Amplus Solar’s mission to advance clean mobility solutions to its customers.

According to Mr. Abhishek Dabas, Chief Operating Officer of Amplus Solar’s clean mobility solutions, “Electric mobility can upend the current logistics and transportation sector. This disruption is even more pronounced at Amplus since we run our fleets by deploying the most advanced technologies, thus removing inefficiencies, and lowering current delivery costs. We feel that the Zor Grand from Mahindra Electric will be a fantastic addition to our clean fleet as we work together to realise zero-carbon freight mobility in India.”

About Amplus Solar’s Electric Mobility vertical

Amplus Solar’s electric mobility vertical is a 100% subsidiary of Amplus Solar and is headquartered in Gurugram, India. It aims to ramp up operations to 1,000+ electric vehicles (that translates into a daily run of 1,00,000+ clean kms with a CO2 offsetting of 20+ tonnes), by the end of 2022 with a mix of two-wheeler, three-wheeler, and four-wheeler vehicles in its portfolio.

The brand already has more than a dozen parking and charging hubs which its partners use to deliver goods to their clients. This takes away not just the range anxiety regarding the geographic span of operation but also gives longer operational hours. As part of its expansion from hundreds to thousands of vehicles, this captive charging infrastructure will continue to grow. Once it has reached a requisite scale, this charging infrastructure will be opened for public charging as EV penetration increases in the market.
