India’s Uber for Trucks, Trucknetic has launched the EVolev platform for electric trucks. This platform aims to disrupt the Indian EV market and accelerate its widespread adoption. Trucknetic already solved the problem of return loads to lower logistics costs and decrease the country’s carbon footprint. EVolev is a Delhi-based startup that aims to remove all barriers to the mass adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) and bring the entire EV ecosystem onto one platform.
EVolev, which is pronounced like “evolve”, refers to the Indian transport industry’s evolution to new-age electric vehicles. These vehicles are a better alternative to traditional mobility solutions and are more sustainable for the environment, business, and people. The name Olev stands for “online electric vehicle” and refers to the platform of Electric Vehicles as A Service (EV-aas).
EVolev has a unique logo. The bold ‘E” represents the smooth transition from electric vehicles, while the ‘V’ denotes the importance of electric mobility in road logistics.
Arham Partap Jain, Founder of Trucknetic said, “E-commerce and logistic firms that rely heavily on vehicle transportation are the best positioned to become early adopters and market-shapers for electric vehicles. Our company sees great potential in electric freight mobility to create a sustainable and strong supply chain. This is one of the first steps in adapting mobility systems to climate-friendly technology. It will also dramatically reduce carbon emissions.”
The sector is receiving a significant boost from all stakeholders, including the Indian government’s commitment to having 30% of private vehicles as EVs by the year 2030 at COP-27. Auto manufacturers and supply chains are investing heavily in order to achieve this goal.
The company has yet to see the revolution in road logistics mobility with the launch of EV Trucks. It will also be witnessing the emergence of an EV aggregation platform in India for commercial trucks, which will help accelerate EV adoption.
