The development comes at a time when the government is planning to ask taxi aggregators, including Uber and Ola, to convert 40 per cent of their fleet of cars into electric vehicles by April 2026.
A government think-tank has given a proposal calling for replacement of various categories of vehicles by electric vehicles (EVs) within a certain time period. It has also come out with a report titled 'India's Electric Mobility Transformation: Progress to Date and Future Opportunities', detailing the oil and carbon savings the vehicles under Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles II (FAME-II) could deliver.
Under its plan 'Million Electric', Ola plans to deploy 10,000 electric vehicles (EVs) over the next one year, including mostly three- wheelers such as e-rickshaws and electric autorickshaws.
