Delhi-Based Startup ‘eee-Taxi’ Is Helping Corporates Save Time By Providing End-To-End E-Mobility Solutions
In recent years, the Electric Vehicle (EV) segment has gathered a lot of momentum.
Niti Aayog, a policy think tank of the Government of India, has also proposed that India should be a complete EV nation by 2030.
In India, the adoption of EVs in the consumer segment is slow and
as per SIAM, India sells less than a million EVs per year.
A majority part of EVs sold are e-rickshaws, followed by over 100,000 electric bikes, and close to 5,000 electric cars per annum.
But the B2B segment presents a different story in EV adoption.
Many first and last-mile freight operators, eCommerce companies, movers and packers, cab-aggregators, and food delivery companies, have expressed the need for EVs.
Today’s story is about a Delhi-based startup providing end-to-end e-mobility solutions like EVs, charging infrastructure, and technology altogether to help corporates save time, as well as carbon emissions.
Startup Story: eee-Taxi | End-To-End E-Mobility Solution Provider
eee-Taxi is a Delhi-based end-to-end e-mobility solution provider started by Nishant Saini and Vipul Nanda in 2015.
Using tech and by providing a stack of services, the startup is bridging the gap between the demand and supply side in the EV industry.
How eee-Taxi Started?
The friends-duo started their careers by setting up an automobile-logistics company in 2011.
They started with the dealership of e-rickshaw in Gurugram and Faridabad for the first and last-mile passenger commute.
And that was the time when the duo conceived the idea of e-mobility for corporates using four-wheelers.
Talking about the journey, Nishant says,
“Our existing relations with the car manufacturing OEMs led to us launching commercial EVs with them. This also led us to build an entire EV stack from charging to mobility.”
So as things made more sense, Nishant and Vipul integrated tech and services and started eee-Taxi in 2015.
USP Of eee-Taxi
eee-Taxi is leading the green mobility revolution by offering EVs, charging infrastructure, and technology conjointly to help corporates save time, as well as carbon emissions.
The end-to-end e-mobility solution provider is working with a mission to provide environmentally sustainable transportation for everyone, everywhere.
The startup operates two business models.
- It owns, operates, and aggregates EVs for corporates, and has more than ten paying customers.
- The startup also runs a ride-hailing business, specifically for corporates.
The startup manages its fleet by following an end-to-end approach.
“Our seamless integration of the EV ecosystem links our vehicle diagnostics technology to show the status of charge of the vehicle. With the availability of information on charge time, the software helps companies plan their employee routes efficiently. Our tech team talks to our smart charging infrastructure provider, which shows the availability of chargers, and allows fleets to drop employees.”
Present Situation Of eee-Taxi
Presently, the startup is operating 1,000 EVs across Delhi and Hyderabad.
Started with a US-based agency as its first client, the startup’s customers’ last has increased and now includes EY, Deloitte, and Tupperware, among others.
The startup is also a strategic partner for Uber to increase its EV share in India. It has also partnered with L&T Metro and Hyderabad Metro to create an ‘EV Zone’ for the public.
Future Plans Of eee-Taxi
The start is planning to operate about 2,000 cars on its platform in the next 18 months.
Talking about the plans, Nishant says,
“In the next 18 months, we plan to operate about 2,000 cars on our platform, where the demand side will be the corporates, airports, hotels, and train stations, and the supply side will be owned and leased as an aggregator model by the drivers, fleet investors, etc. So, essentially in Tier I and II cities, we will consolidate all the trips, and allocate these trips to drivers on our platform based on various parameters, including the status of the charge and live diagnostics.”
