Under the partnership, 20,000 Hero Electric NYX scooters will be sourced by Grip with a targeted 10,000 scooter deployment in the current calendar year.

Sohinder Gill, CEO, Hero Electric said, “Fleet electrification by businesses has been one of the key conversations being driven by the government to neutralise carbon emissions across the country. With the delivery and e-commerce segments growing exponentially, Hero Electric aims to support the electrification drive and steer the EV transition. This partnership highlights our vision of offering eco-friendly mobility solutions and the direct advantage of adopting electric mobility in terms of savings. It further enables us to explore different channels to lease and supply our scooters and contribute to the growth momentum of EVs and other sectors.”
