As the homegrown e-commerce leader in India, the Flipkart Group takes a very proactive and holistic view in conducting its business responsibly, including all aspects of sustainability and usage of natural resources. In line with this, Flipkart aims to introduce electric vehicles in its last-mile delivery network, in a phased manner.

The aim is to replace nearly 40% of its existing last mile fleet of delivery vans with EVs by March 2020, starting with nearly 160 EVans to be deployed across cities by the end of 2019.

Flipkart will also be working closely with the various manufacturers in this field to get the right designs suitable for e-commerce deliveries. At present, Flipkart has already deployed 8 EVs in Hyderabad, 10 in New Delhi and 30 e-bikes in Bangalore.
