New Delhi/IBNS: Automobile major MG (Morris Garages) India on Monday delivered the first ZS EV to state-owned EESL (Energy Efficiency Services Ltd.).
The vehicle will be used by key government officials to further the cause of reducing pollution by putting more EVs on the road by 2030.
The launch of the ZS EV, India’s First Pure Electric Internet SUV, is part of the carmaker’s vision for a clean and green future and aligns with the government’s recent push to put more electric vehicles on the Indian roads.
Speaking on the future of mobility in the country and the role of automotive players such as MG Motor India in it, Saurabh Kumar, MD – EESL, said, “The future of mobility in India is electric and sustainable. It is heartening to see that private companies such as MG Motor India are taking strong measures to complement the government’s EV vision. EV adoption brings many benefits, such as lower levels of air pollution and less dependence on costly fossil fuels. Our purchase of five ZS EVs is in line with our commitment to protecting the environment. We will be exploring opportunities to further expand this fleet and reduce our carbon footprint.”
Commenting on the development, Gaurav Gupta, Chief Commercial Officer, MG Motor India, said, “We are grateful for the government’s support and are delighted that the ZS EV, our first EV product in the country, is finding traction even amongst government departments.
