Euler Motors, an electric vehicle company, has partnered with India’s leading asset financing company, Shriram Transport Finance Company Limited (STFC) to drive accessible retail financing of the Euler HiLoad EV. The partnership will aim at PAN India deployment of the company’s Euler HiLoad EVs, with lower interest rates and high loan to value (LTVs) for customers in retail.
With an objective to deploy over 20,000 EVs in the next two years, Euler Motors will utilize STFC’s financing and segment expertise in the transportation sector and make commercial EVs mainstream on Indian roads. Both organisations will also closely work to drive awareness on benefits of EVs for Indian customers.
Saurav Kumar, Founder and CEO, Euler Motors, said, “Euler Motors is committed to provide the most powerful EVs, and develop a robust ecosystem, of which EV financing is a critical element.
We are thrilled about having one of India’s largest asset financing Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs), STFC on board with us.
