Flipkart to transition entirely to electric vehicles by 2030New Delhi: Walmart-owned e-commerce company Flipkart, will transition to electric vehicles (EVs) by joining the Climate Group’s global electric mobility initiative, EV100 by 2030, the company said in a statement.

As a part of this commitment and to support wider adoption of EVs, Flipkart is committing to a phased integration of electric vehicles into its entire fleet (directly owned or leased corporate fleets) by 2030. This will be done through placing requirements in service contracts, installing charging infrastructure close to its 1,400 supply chain premises, conducting awareness programs, and incentivizing delivery executives towards the use of electric vehicles, the company said.

“Our commitment to the Climate Group’s EV100 initiative ties in with this larger vision of environmental sustainability and allows us to learn from the most forward-thinking global perspectives as part of the EV100 ecosystem. With our scale & scope and intense focus on Sustainability agenda, we believe we can play a significant role in not just fast-tracking the adoption of electric vehicles but also making clean mobility mainstream,” said Kalyan Krishnamurthy, CEO, Flipkart Group.

According to the company, over the past year, Flipkart has worked towards creating a wide network of ecosystem partners across charging providers, regulators, policymakers, skill development agencies, aggregators, and OEMs to work on various areas. These include designing and the manufacturing of EVs optimized for e-commerce while supporting market demand for EVs to emerge as a mainstream mobility solution.

“The Climate Group is thrilled to see Flipkart signing up to EV100 and step up to lead the adoption of electric vehicles in the e-commerce sector in India. Flipkart will play a significant role in fostering innovation in technology and exchanging knowledge on e-mobility within our global network of committed businesses. To help make swift emissions cuts and improve air quality for the long-term, we urge more Indian companies to follow suit, sending a powerful signal of support to policymakers wishing to see a faster roll-out of EVs,” said Divya Sharma, India Executive Director, Climate Group.
