TVS Motor Company, a leading two- and three-wheeler manufacturer, has entered into a partnership with Amazon India, under which Amazon will use TVS Motors’ electric vehicles to deliver goods to customers.
Furthermore, the two companies will collaborate to explore EV use cases for various Amazon businesses in terms of connectivity and logistical requirements. To test solutions, both companies will pilot TVS Motor’s electric vehicles across India via partner bases and delivery associates.
“Electric mobility is a significant component of our business operations, and we are unwavering in our commitment to transforming our transportation network to serve our customers more sustainably,” said Abhinav Singh, Amazon India’s Director of Customer Fulfillment, Supply Chain, and Global Specialty Fulfillment.
Thus, according to him, the partnership with TVS Motor will strengthen Amazon India’s delivery network by adding electric two- and three-wheelers to the existing fleet. “This will help our supply chain reduce the environmental impact of our operations and contribute to Amazon India’s goal of incorporating 10,000 EVs into our fleet by 2025,” he added.
“With the tremendous success of the TVS iQube Electric, we now intend to expand our electric offering across multiple segments, and commercial mobility is at an important juncture,” said Manu Saxena, Senior Vice President, Future Mobility, TVS Motor Company.
He also stated that TVS Motor is now ready with B2B electric two-wheeler and three-wheeler product options, as well as an ecosystem of connected service and alternate ownership.
This collaboration is also consistent with TVS Motor’s revelations about striving to have electric vehicles in segments such as delivery, commuter, and premium. Over the next eight quarters, TVS Motor Company will launch a full portfolio of electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers in domestic and international markets.
TVS Motor’s electric two- and three-wheelers are geared toward local logistics players, delivery associates, and fleet operators, among others.
