All the deliveries will be done with API integrated electric vehicles. The company is also installing 20 battery swapping and charging stations to run them smoothly.
Mr. Akash Gupta, co-founder & CEO, Zypp Electric, said – “We are extremely proud and excited to launch our last mile delivery services in Hyderabad. We took time to launch operations in the South as we wanted to garner an EV leadership spot in the North. Our main aim is to partner with organisations, businesses, neighbourhood stores to provide eco-friendly delivery services through our electronic bikes which will help adopt a carbon-free ecosystem to reduce pollution in the city. We plan to expand to a fleet of 500 EVs in the next 3-4 months in the city, the first for us in south India.”
