Bengaluru: E-commerce giant Amazon India will deploy 10,000 electric vehicles (EVs) in its delivery fleet by 2025, the company said on Monday. “The expansion of our electric vehicle fleet to 10,000 vehicles by 2025 is an integral milestone in our journey to become an energy efficient leader in the industry,” said Amazon Asia Pacific and Emerging Markets Customer Fulfilment vice president Akhil Saxena in a statement. Saxena said Amazon is dedicated to building a supply chain model of operations which will minimise adverse environmental impact as it aims to decrease its dependence on non-renewable sources. Amazon committed to this green initiative after successfully conducting pilots runs across multiple cities in 2019, enabling the company to establish a large scalable and long term EV fleet. The 10,000 Indian EV commitment is in addition to the global commitment of deploying one lakh electric vehicles in the e-tailer’s delivery fleet by 2030, announced as part of the company’s Climate Pledge.
