Mahindra Electric delivers electric Treo for Amritsar project

Mahindra Electric Mobility, an empaneled OEM under the RAAHI (Rejuvenation of Auto-Rickshaw in Amritsar through Holistic Intervention) Project has delivered the first Treo auto to a beneficiary – Narinder Singh Chaudhry, a senior employee of Amritsar Railway Station.

The RAAHI project focuses on reducing air pollution levels in the city and is a part of the City Investments to Innovate, Integrate and Sustain (CITIIIS) initiative. A total of 12 cities including Amritsar have been selected under the CITIIS program and MEML will deliver over 500 Treo electric autos over the next few months.

Under the RAAHI project, a subsidy of Rs 75 000.00 is given to each beneficiary, with an allotted outlay of Rs 08 Crore. If the customer decides to buy the Treo upfront, the full subsidy will be deposited in their account whereas if they take a loan, Rs 15000 will be credited. The balance Rs 60,000 will be adjusted in the loan amount. The subsidy is over and above the FAME-II discounts.

Suman Mishra, CEO, MEML said, “It is an honour to participate in the RAAHI Project and deliver our technologically-advanced electric 3-wheelers to beneficiaries under the scheme. 3-wheelers play a pivotal role in last mile mobility and the Treo fleet will promote usage of electric vehicles over ICE – thereby reducing pollution.”

The RAAHI scheme, launched in 2019 aims to replace over 12,000 ageing diesel 3-wheelers. All beneficiaries are selected and scrutinised by the Amritsar Smart City The female beneficiaries’ family are, additionally, eligible to avail skill development courses from NSDC.
