According to government data, urban freight vehicles account for 10% of freight transportation-related CO2 emissions in India, and these emissions are expected to grow by 114% by 2030. Industry analysts reckon that EVs emit no tailpipe emissions, which can contribute immensely to improved air quality. 

Abhishek Bansal, Co-founder & CEO, Shadowfax Technologies, said, “Our team is streamlining the whole process so that people can earn within minutes of logging into the platform. With the EV and E-store initiatives, our target on first-time users and new categories like women partners would be fast-tracked.”

He also revealed that the company would be participating in the NITI Aayog project ‘Shoonya — Zero Pollution Mobility,’ which is driving the EV agenda.
