Switch Mobility electrifies production line with first IeV 4 rollout

 

Switch Mobility, the electric vehicle arm of Ashok Leyland, announced a major milestone on Thursday with the rollout of the first IeV 4 electric light commercial vehicle from its Hosur plant.

"This achievement marks a significant step forward in our journey towards sustainable mobility and innovation," said Mahesh Babu, CEO of Switch Mobility, in a social media post. "With cutting-edge technology and unwavering commitment, we're shaping the future of electric vehicles."

The IeV 4 represents the start of production for Switch Mobility's IeV series of electric light commercial vehicles (e-LCVs). The company aims to manufacture approximately 3,000 units per year, catering to diverse applications like cargo transport, containers, garbage collection, and refrigerated vans.

Switch Mobility has already secured Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) for 12,000 to 13,000 e-LCVs, demonstrating strong early demand.

This development follows the recent appointment of Pushkar Sinha as Switch Mobility's Head of Sales for e-LCVs. Sinha, a seasoned commercial vehicle industry veteran with over 25 years of experience, brings expertise from leading companies like Tata Motors, Bajaj Auto, and Piaggio. He previously served as Vice President of Business Development and OEM Relations at Sun Mobility.
