Mr K Vijaya Kumar, MD & CEO of Lectrix EV shared, “Lectrix EV’s readiness to provide customized electric two-wheelers tailored to Zypp’s needs is a testament to their deep understanding of the B2B (business-to-business) use case in the electric mobility industry. This understanding has been honed through past and ongoing collaborations with industry giants like Bounce and Moving. The valuable insights gained from these partnerships have positioned Lectrix EV as a go-to partner for businesses seeking efficient and sustainable last-mile delivery solutions.

“We are currently in a massive expansion phase and our aim is to deploy half a million scooters within the next 4 years. Indian last mile market is desperately looking to electrify itself and the solution lies with large-scale fleet service providers who can manage the entire ecosystem around EVs. The adoption of electric two-wheelers for last-mile deliveries not only reduces operational costs for businesses but also contributes significantly to reducing carbon footprint and fueling the ongoing demand for faster deliveries to customer doorsteps. In the past, we have worked with a few select OEMs. We have been testing Lectrix products for a few months now and am happy to collaborate with Letrix EV to achieve this big goal and look forward to working with them in the future as well”, shared Tushar Mehta, COO & Co-founder, of Zypp Electric.
