Mahindra Electric announced that their partnership has crossed the significant milestone of 1,000 Mahindra electric vehicles in the Lithium fleet. Having clocked 100 million ekms, with over 500 Mahindra EVs running more than 1 lakh ekms, this partnership is set to transform employee transportation solutions in India and drive the adoption of electric mobility in the country. In fact over 75 Mahindra EVs have driven over 2 lakh ekms, a significant achievement in an otherwise nascent EV industry. The two leading companies in the electric mobility space have joined forces to offer convenient, affordable, zero-emissions mobility for employee transportation. With cumulative sales of almost 30,000 electric vehicles till date, Mahindra has emerged as the leader in 3 & 4 wheeler EVs in India.

Lithium is India’s largest EV fleet operator with the majority of its fleet comprising Mahindra vehicles. This partnership between two leaders - Mahindra in EV sales and Lithium in shared corporate employee commutes - has been bringing about a positive change in consumers’ daily lives since 2015, by changing the way they commute, making it greener and more sustainable. Initiatives like this are aimed at rapidly transforming the overall EV adoption rate in the country.

In 2015 Lithium started with a small fleet of 10 Mahindra e20s in Bangalore and gradually inducted more Mahindra eVeritos to take the fleet size to 1,000 Mahindra EVs. Since then the expansion has been phenomenal both in terms of geographical footprint to 9 cities and industry penetration in IT/ITES, Financial Services, KPO/BPO, Consulting firms. Today Lithium is the top choice for corporate organizations across India as their employee transportation services partner. It is an example of collaboration between leaders to address India’s growing need for clean, shared and public mobility solutions.

Together the companies have aided in 20,000+ MT CO2e abatement and saved 8,500,000+ litres of fuel. The impact can be gauged as it equals to adding 120+ Cubbon Parks to India.

Going forward, electric vehicles will play a major role in reducing urban pollution which is plaguing several Indian cities and enable a green and clean environment. With the increased penetration of EVs and eventual 100% transition, the country and its citizens stand to benefit tremendously. All these initiatives align perfectly with Mahindra’s Rise philosophy of empowering people with the right products and services to enhance the quality of their lives and livelihood.
