BluSmart mobility, an all-electric ride-hailing platform, flagged off the country’s first all-electric journey by a commercial vehicle. The trip that commenced in Delhi on Friday concluded in Mumbai today, i.e 9th September which is marked as World EV Day across the globe. Aimed at demonstrating that an electric car can do long-distance travel in India, the Mahindra e-Verito electric cab covered more than 1,500 km Delhi to Mumbai. BluSmart states in the process, it saved 105 kg of CO2 emissions in comparison to if the trip was done in a traditional ICE car.

This is BluSmart’s first step to showcase that India is ready for electric vehicles. The journey entailed fast charging the car five times and slow charging it six times, Anmol Jaggi, Founder, BluSmart Mobility said.

The only motive behind this commercial journey was to showcase that India is ready for EV’s and can help revive the environment with noiseless, electric, zero-emission rides, he added while expressing gratitude towards Anand Mahindra who shared his excitement about the drive which was carried out in an e-Verito.
