We strongly believe in the inherent benefits of zero-emission and lower operating costs of EVs, and this will be the ultimate game-changer for commuting in the city. We plan to deploy 500 Tigor EVs in New Delhi and bring EV solutions closer to our customers.
Some of the underlying benefits of EVs are:
- Zero Surge Charge: No amount of traffic or demand will bring about a change in the cost of the journey. As a result, customers can book cabs without worrying about absurd prices.
- Zero Cancellations: Our driver can’t cancel the trip and only our customers can cancel their trip
- Zero Emissions: As our fleet is all-electric, there will be no emissions in their lifespan. As a result, cities will eventually be able to breathe easy without worrying about toxic fumes from exhaust pipes.
