Amazon India and TVS Motor have joined hands to strengthen electric mobility in the country, the companies said in a joint statement on Wednesday. As part of the collaboration, a fleet of electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers from TVS Motor will be deployed for Amazon's last-mile deliveries. In addition, the two companies will work in tandem to examine EV use cases for various Amazon business groups for its network and logistical requirements, the statement said.

In order to test solutions, the two companies will pilot TVS Motor's electric vehicle solutions through partner base and delivery associates across India.

TVS Motor is now ready with electric two-wheeler and three-wheeler product options for B2B (business-to-business) along with an ecosystem of connected service and alternate ownership. We are happy to collaborate with Amazon India, which marks a big milestone in our journey, and contribute to our joint goals of electrifying their mobility services,” TVS Motor Company Future Mobility Senior Vice President Manu Saxena said.

Amazon India Director-Customer Fulfilment, Supply Chain and Global Specialty Fulfilment, Abhinav Singh said the collaboration marks another decisive step for the company to achieve its goal of becoming net-zero carbon by 2040.

“Electric mobility is a significant component of our business operations, and we are resolute in our commitment to transforming our transportation network to serve our customers more sustainably,” he added.

The collaboration strengthens Amazon India's delivery network by adding electric two and three-wheelers to the existing fleet, Singh said.

“This will support our supply chain in minimising the environmental impact of our operations and contribute to Amazon India's goal of inducting 10,000 EVs into our fleet by 2025,” he added.

In 2020, Amazon India announced that it would include 10,000 EVs in its delivery fleet by 2025.
