Starting 2021


Flipkart – India’s largest, homegrown e-commerce marketplace announced plans to deploy over 25,000 electric vehicles by 2030, in line with its plan to transition to electric mobility across its city logistics fleet. Currently we have deployed 85 vehicles in 6 cities. It also plans to help set up charging infrastructure around delivery hubs and offices to fast-track the adoption of EVs in India.  

The Partnership

The e-commerce giant partnered with Hero Electric and deployed E2Ws in multiple cities across India for its first and last mile delivery fleets.

The Solution

Flipkart chose Hero Electric’s Nyx Series (HX and LX variants) for the task which offers a range of up to 150km per charge.

The Impact

The company significantly reduced its operational costs, saving on fuel, maintenance and helped generate employment opportunities for riders who do not own a bike of their own.

The Word

“Electric mobility can benefit multiple ecosystem stakeholders, not just in e-commerce but in many other industries. Electrification of the logistics fleet is a key part of Flipkart’s larger sustainability goal and in line with our commitment to the Climate Group’s EV100 initiative. In this journey of making our logistics fleet completely electric by 2030, we will collaborate and work with leading local players to procure and deploy electric vehicles while supporting the required infrastructure growth. We understand the relevance of electric mobility in achieving both business and sustainability goals and are committed to paving the way for greater adoption of EVs across the country.”
