Lithium Urban Technologies is India’s one of the largest electric vehicles fleet operators, and the company has announced its partnership with Wipro. The company will offer employee transportation service to Wipro’s offices across the country.
Lithium started giving its services to Wipro's Hyderabad campus in June 2018, and so far its electric cars have covered a distance of around 40 lakh km. Lithium will soon bring electric vehicles to provide service to other Wipro offices across India. Both the companies started the newest EV fleet at DLF Cybercity, Gurugram this week.
Sanjay Krishnan, Co-founder and CEO, Lithium Urban Technologies, commented on this by saying, "We are indeed privileged to be a part of this journey at Wipro for the last 18 months. This journey which started in Hyderabad is now being expanded nationally, backed by proven results. We aim to deliver some fantastic results in terms of both, cost savings and carbon footprint reduction. It is indeed our privilege to partner with Wipro in serving the nation and saving the planet."
Nittan Bhalla, General Manager & Head - Facilities Management & Operations at Wipro, said "The decision to move to EVs for our employee transportation services was natural for Wipro since it involved public health benefits - cleaner air in cities, as well as mitigating carbon emissions. Lithium was our obvious choice as Wipro has greatly benefitted from its partnership with the company ever since our successful collaboration last year to transition our vehicle fleet to EVs in Hyderabad."
Wipro aims to transform 35 per cent of the fleet to electric in the upcoming 18 months to reach 100m 'green' kilometres. Wipro also says that currently, 40-50 per cent of energy used in its campuses is generated from renewables.
The electric vehicles used in Lithium Urban Technologies' fleet are Mahindra eVerito, powered by an electric motor coupled with a 72V lithium-ion battery pack. The electric sedan offers a driving range of 110 km on a full charge. The eVerito's top-speed is rated at 86 kmph. Lithium also owns and operates India's largest EV charging network across 7 cities in India. Overall, the Lithium electric vehicle fleet has covered almost 100 million (1 crore) kilometres.
