“The future will be dominated by electric vehicles. Apart from offering cheap maintenance costs, these electronic vehicles are directly helping the atmosphere and environment to stay healthy and clean. I thank Pankaj Malhan Sir for collaborating with us in this noble initiative,” said Gaurav Rathore, CEO of EVeez.
Malhan, during the ceremonial speech, told that this initiative in association with EVeez will help to reduce the carbon footprint so that India will remain beautiful as it always was.
“It feels hugely satisfying to move closer to our aim of going completely EV reliant by 2025. With this, ESL has become the first business in the Vedanta Group to launch electrical bicycles and electric scooters in the plant premises for its employees. As we get future-ready, I cannot thank EVeez enough for their support and help that takes us an inch closer to our goal. On Republic Day, I hope we inspire others to reduce carbon footprint so that India can remain as beautiful as it always was,” said Malhan.
The e-bikes which are being used inside the plant of ESL will be GPS enabled employees can scan the QR code and login with their employee ID. With designated access to 14 locations inside the plant, the facility can be easily used with the help of a mobile app.
The movement of these vehicles beyond the plant’s geospatial area is restricted and can be tracked. Other than that, the vehicles are auto-set with a maximum speed limit of 20 kilometers per hour. The plant is also developing charging facilities as well as parking space for these e-bikes.
As serious problems like climate change and global warming continue to bother planet earth, experts believe that the only way to protect the environment is by switching to e-vehicles. Electric vehicles have no fuel emissions, and the maintenance cost is also very low.
“Electric Mobility is the future and the faster we shift to it the better for us as a nation. We are ensuring that the shift from conventional fuel to electricity is safe and affordable. Initiatives like these from ESL Steel Ltd. are a big boost to the ecosystem and I feel that this is a strong step towards sustainable human development. I wish them all the best and hope to support them in the future as well,” said Abhishek Dwivedi, Co-founder and COO of EVeez.
