Yulu partners with Zomato to scale usage of electric vehicles

Yulu, the electric Mobility-as-a-Service player, has partnered with Zomato for using Yulu DeX EV for intra-city deliveries. About 25,000 - 35,000 Yulu DeX will be given to delivery partners onboarded on Zomato’s platform for last-mile deliveries on custom-made rental plans.

Rising fuel prices and financial challenges are significant barriers for youth who want to onboard themselves as delivery partners. Yulu DeX  solves most of these challenges, and provides a mobility solution that is very easy to access for all. Yulu has flexible rental packs and allows delivery partners to earn higher earnings compared to ICE-vehicles. Along with this, the delivery partners get access to Yuma Energy’s wide network of battery swapping stations to minimise their downtime during last-mile deliveries. Once deployed, these 25,000+ Yulu DeX have the potential of serving 3 Lakh green deliveries every day by 2026, the press release notes. 

Pradeep Puranam, Head - Revenue & Operations, Yulu said that with Yulu’s deep understanding of the delivery ecosystem, purpose-built product DeX, robust operations and a wide network of battery swapping stations, their solutions can improve earnings of delivery partners by up to 40 percent.

"There is an increasing desire towards reducing carbon footprint among customers as well, so this is a win-win for customers, delivery executives and both the companies,” he added. 

Mohit Sardana, COO, Food Delivery at Zomato said that as part of The Climate Group's EV100 initiative, they have committed to transitioning our delivery fleet to 100 percent electric, and with Yulu's support, they were on the right path to achieve this target.

Over 4,000 delivery partners as of February 2023, onboarded on Zomato’s platform organically utilise Yulu’s EVs to make the last-mile deliveries, the press release noted.
