BluSmart electric cabs

BluSmart, an all-electric ride-hailing platform, today announced the introduction of new features in its electric cab service, which include Blu Wallet, Hourly Rentals, and Referrals. Under its new initiative, BluSmart lets its customers book sanitized electric cabs for travelling in Gurugram as well as to and for the airport at no surge flat fares starting at Rs 99. The service provider aims to introduce more such features in the near future and also has plans to plant trees according to the number of rentals. BluSmart claims that it has reduced over 325 tonnes of CO2 over the last one year by running all-electric cars in Delhi-NCR.

New BluSmart features are:

Blu Wallet: An in-app wallet for contactless monetary transactions. The wallet can be recharged using debit and credit cards, digital wallets, net-banking, and UPI methods.

Hourly Rentals: Based on popular customer demand, BluSmart has launched Hourly Rentals starting at Rs 199. Using this option, customers can keep the same electric vehicle with them while they go about attending to their needs in the city. With the rental product, customers in Gurugram will also be able to take the electric cars to anywhere in Delhi, thus increasing the radius of operations of BluSmart in NCR. The rentals start at 1 hour/10 km going up to 8 hours/80 km, with 1-hour intervals.

Referrals: BluSmart has reached the milestone of 10k+ active users and now the company will be launching its referral feature that allows users to invite their friends and family to the electric mobility solution. BluSmart will also plant one tree per referral.
