The company's first investment is with Zypp Electric, a last-mile delivery service, with the launch of 250 Hero Electric two-wheelers in New Delhi.

We will onboard EV vehicles across multiple cities and generate employment avenues for the youth of India. We need to create an evolving ecosystem that can address all challenges and enable millions of businesses to adopt sustainable modes of transport. We plan to work with more environment friendly mobility companies in the future and to transform the overall shared mobility space in India by bringing our financial and strategic experience from our stakeholders.`` 

Zypp is currently present in Delhi-NCR with a fleet size of over 5,000 electric scooters, and plans to expand to Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Pune in 2022.
