500 electric taxis will arrive on the roads of Delhi this month to combat air pollution

NEW DELHI: A start-up company based in the city plans to create a fleet of electric vehicle taxis in the National Capital Region of Delhi (NCR) this month to combat air pollution. 'Prakriti E-Mobility Private Limited' will present 500 in the first phase and expects to touch the 5,000 mark in the next two years, according to a statement issued by the company.

The cab services of electric vehicles based on applications will be known as EVERA.

We wanted to offer customers a lovely service and give them the opportunity to also contribute to the cause of cleaner air. 'EVERA' as a service not only focuses on bringing customers from point A to point B, but will also contribute to the greatest good on the planet, said Nimish Trivedi, co-founder and CEO of Prakriti E-Mobility Private Limited.

Going big with zero emissions, the start-up for the benefit of its potential customers also claims to follow a strict zero increase pricing policy and zero cancellations.

Customers can book taxis without worrying about the price increase and can cancel the trip without paying it, he added.

In addition, realizing that the lack of a solid charging infrastructure in the country could be one of the obstacles for electric vehicles, the company said it is already in talks to establish its own charging infrastructure to reduce its dependence on existing.
