GreenCell Mobility, a shared electric mobility platform supported by EverSource Capital, announced that it will deploy 50 electric buses in 4 areas of Gujarat in a gradual manner to facilitate inter-city travel.

According to a statement, the first such bus will be launched on the Ahmednagar–Pune route starting June 1.

It stated that these standard luxury coaches are equipped with Li-ion batteries and air-conditioned cabins. They can charge in as little as 90 to 120 minutes and can travel up to 250 kilometers on a single charge.

India has seen a rise in electric bus adoption. Many cities have electrified their bus-based transport systems. The company stated that this was further boosted by India’s FAME Phase II program.

GreenCell Mobility plans to create “green routes” with 12-meter buses throughout the state. The company stated that 10 buses will travel between Pune and Aurangabad, as an extension of Pune-Ahmednagar’s route. Meanwhile, 12 buses will operate on the Pune – Kolhapur route.

According to the company, a total of 3743 tons of carbon dioxide will be reduced over the life of these buses.
