Gensol Mobility launches India's first electric taxi service in Delhi-NCR
Gensol Mobility has launched BLU-SMART, India's first electric vehicle (EV) taxi fleet, in Delhi-NCR with around 70 cars. It will add up to 400 vehicles by the end of March 2019.
Gensol Mobility has further invested more than Rs 50 crore to set up charging infrastructure in various parts of the city. The company is in talks with various car companies like Tata Motors, Mahindra & Mahindra and Nissan for procuring EVs.
Anmol Singh Jaggi, Promoter of Gensol Mobility, said, "We at BLU-SMART believe that the next revolution is in the EV space. We are not a competition to current app-based cabs services (like Ola and Uber), but a mere greener alternative to them."
Presently, BLU-SMART has 70 Mahindra Verito EVs on its platform.
"We are negotiating with Tata Motors and in the process of getting more orders from Mahindra. We are also exploring with Nissan on the possibility of bringing the Nissan Leaf onto our platform," Jaggi added.
He further stated, "The pricing will be competitive with other players that charge about Rs 14-16 per km for compact sedans. We are starting with web booking and in another seven days, our app would be in place."
