Zevo and Zen Mobility join forces to introduce 3,000 Zen Micro Pods for last mile delivery

This collaboration is set to benefit the delivery services of Zomato, Swiggy, and other similar services. In the first phase of this partnership, Zevo will deploy 3,000 units of the Zen Micro Pod over the next 12 months, ensuring a significant boost in delivery operations.

ZEVO, a tech-enabled EV mobility platform, has announced a strategic partnership with Zen Mobility, an emerging Indian electric vehicle OEM, to transform the landscape of last-mile deliveries in India. Zen Mobility, recognized for its innovative vehicle solutions, has developed the Zen Micro Pod – a specialized vehicle designed to navigate the congested urban roads of India. This collaboration is set to enhance delivery efficiency and reliability, benefiting services such as Zomato, Swiggy, and other similar services.

In the first phase of this partnership, ZEVO will deploy 3,000 units of the Zen Micro Pod over the next 12 months, ensuring a significant boost in delivery operations. The Zen Micro Pod’s innovative design with 150kg payload carrying capacity, range of over 120 kilometers per charge, and customized box allow it to navigate traffic with ease, ensuring timely deliveries. Additionally, Zen Mobility’s forthcoming Zen Maxi Pod, a 4-wheeler Light Electric Vehicle (LEV) designed for mid to large-size deliveries, will further enhance ZEVO’s delivery capabilities.

ZEVO plans to deploy these advanced vehicles nationwide, starting with Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR). This initial phase will enable rigorous testing and refinement to meet local challenges. Upon successful implementation in these regions, the rollout will expand to other major cities, including Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune, and Chennai.

This partnership aligns with ZEVO’s commitment to sustainability. Zen Mobility’s eco-friendly, energy-efficient vehicles will significantly reduce ZEVO’s carbon footprint, contributing to a greener future for India’s transportation sector.

For e-commerce deliveries, ZEVO will allocate a substantial portion of the fleet to meet the growing demand for timely shipments of consumer goods. Simultaneously, an equal number of units will be dedicated to grocery delivery services, striking a balance between these two vital sectors.

Aditya Singh Ratnu, CEO and Managing Director ZEVO, said, “We are excited to join forces with Zen Mobility as we both share a common vision. Their cutting-edge electric vehicle designs, such as the MicroPod and Zen Maxi Pod, perfectly align with our aim to provide efficient, sustainable, and customer-centric logistics solutions across India. By integrating these advanced units into our operations, we are poised to revolutionize last-mile deliveries, ensuring prompt and reliable services while minimizing our environmental impact. This collaboration represents a significant step towards our goal of setting new industry standards for timeliness, product freshness, and transparency.”

Speaking on the partnership, Mr. Namit Jain, Founder and CEO, Zen Mobility, said, “We’re excited to join forces with ZEVO, a company that shares our passion for innovation and sustainability in the logistics sector. Our Zen Micro Pods have been meticulously crafted to navigate urban environments seamlessly, enabling efficient and eco-friendly last-mile deliveries. With the introduction of this purpose-built three-wheeler Light Electric Vehicle in India, we’re set to revolutionize the last-mile delivery landscape with its efficient performance. Through our collaboration with ZEVO, we aim to lead the way in urban mobility, where zero-emission transportation solutions are the standard. Together, we’re committed to setting new industry benchmarks for excellence, ensuring that every delivery not only meets but exceeds customer expectations, while also minimizing carbon footprint.”

The overarching goal of this collaboration is to revolutionize the logistics landscape in India by introducing innovative and sustainable solutions. By leveraging Zen Mobility’s emission-free vehicles, ZEVO aims to pioneer a new era of eco-conscious logistics operations. This initiative not only enhances delivery efficiency but also elevates the customer experience by ensuring timely, fresh, and transparent deliveries.

Together, ZEVO and Zen Mobility are committed to setting new benchmarks in the logistics industry, merging sustainability, efficiency, and exceptional customer service. Through this strategic alliance, they aspire to create a future where innovative and sustainable logistics solutions meet the evolving needs of consumers and businesses alike.
