Swiggy has added electric vehicles (EVs) to its delivery fleet. The company recently announced the commencement of trials, with the aim to cover deliveries spanning 8,00,000 km per day through EVs by 2025.

Swiggy has signed an agreement with Reliance BP Mobility Limited (RBML) to build an EV ecosystem and battery-swapping stations for its delivery partners across the country. The company has also partnered with e-cycle maker Hero Lectro and UK-based Fast Despatch Logistics for end-to-end delivery of Swiggy orders through cargo e-cycles. The company expects the use of EVs to lower running costs by up to 40%.

RBML will install battery swapping stations every few kilometers. A single pre-charged battery is said to offer a range of 65-80 km.
