Lithium Urban Technologies Private Limited, a corporate employee transportation (CET) aggregator, has partnered with Indian software giant Wipro to expand its fleet of electric vehicles (EV) for transporting its employees across its offices in India.
It’s the owner of the world’s largest fleet of EVs outside China. It owns fleets of EVs and associated charging infrastructure with the technology to back it like telematics, fleet management systems, scheduling, rostering, and analytics-based optimization.
Lithium started its service at Wipro’s Hyderabad campus in June 2018 and has covered over four million kilometers with its electric cars to date, saving about 800 million tons in terms of carbon dioxide emissions in this period.
Wipro said 40-50% of the energy used by the company is from renewable energy sources, and it aims to convert 35% of its vehicle fleet to EVs in the next 18 months. It aims to reach 100 million ‘green’ kilometers.
The companies plan to roll out the fleet of EVs powered by renewable energy in a phased manner over the next 12-18 months catering to Wipro’s transportation needs across the country.
Last year, the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, announced its plans to invest $8 million in Lithium Urban Technologies.
