Flipkart Is Deploying 2000 EVs And Is Going Plastic-Free From This Festive Season

Earlier this year, Walmart-owned Flipkart had committed to deploying 25,000 electric vehicles (EV) in its supply chain by 2030 towards its transition to 100 per cent fleet electrification as part of its collaboration with The Climate Group”s EV100 campaign.

On Wednesday, Flipkart said it will deploy over 2,000 EVs in its delivery fleet prior to the festive season and the Big Billion Days. These electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers have been deployed across 90 cities in India and will help deliver smiles this festive season sustainably.

Some of these cities include Bengaluru, Delhi/NCR, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Sonai, Mysore and Rampur.

The homegrown e-commerce company also highlighted that it is going plastic-free for millions of packages.


After successfully eliminating single-use plastic in its own supply chain in July this year, more than 75 per cent of Flipkart”s seller fulfilled shipments are now being processed in sustainable packaging, marking a 20x increase over July 2020 covering more than 70 facilities across India.

E-commerce companies see a large chunk of their business coming in during the festive sales and they make significant investments ahead of time to ramp up their capacity and add features to be able to handle the spike in orders while ensuring a smooth experience for shoppers and sellers.
