Swedish firm’s electric 3-wheeler Zbee set to hit Indian roads

“We are expecting clearance from ARAI within two-three weeks and start the pilot project before August 15 in Delhi,” Anil Arora, country head at Clean Motion India told Financial Chronicle. The company has tied up with DLF, one of the largest commercial real estate developers in India to kick off this last mile connectivity for commuters project Delhi. As a pilot project, about 25 electric vehicles would connect DLF Place Saket mall with Malviya Nagar Metro Station. “The Zbee is scheduled for launch before August 15 to operate a cluster of 25 vehicles from DLF Place to Malviya Nagar Metro Station,” Goran Folksson, CEO at Clean Motion told Financial Chronicle said. In the second phase, these vehicles are likely to be used in Cyber City hub, Gurgaon, and eventually cover all 100 smart cities in the country. “We are into smart transportation and our vehicles are very popular in Europe. Since last one year, Zbee vehicles have become popular plying on the roads in Malaysia. We also see them as an integral part of the smart cities in India with great potential for growth,” Folksson said.
