PMI Electro Mobility, a leading electric bus manufacturer and fleet operator, has delivered electric buses to the Himachal Road Transport Corporation for Dharamshala in the state.
Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh, Sukhvinder Singh flagged off the electric buses in Dharamshala, marking a step towards the electrification of public transportation in the state. Under the contract, PMI Electro Mobility will provide 50 electric buses to Himachal Road Transport Corporation for Dharamshala and maintain them for 10 years, resulting in an overall reduction of 14,000 tons of CO2 over the contract term. Each PMI electric bus can save 28,000 kg of CO2 every year.
Chairman at PMI Electro Mobility, Satish Jain, said the company has so far delivered 65 e-buses in Himachal Pradesh. Jain said, “PMI is committed to providing world-class electric buses with advanced features such as air suspension, real-time monitoring system through CCTV cameras, pre-emptive diagnostics, and more, through their indigenous technology. PMI will operate and manage these buses with tech-enabled electric bus depots for efficient running of buses to provide citizens of Dharamshala with reliable services”.
“With these electric buses, the state will be able to avoid over 1,800 tons of CO2 emissions every year, thus contributing to the clean energy revolution in India and making a positive impact on the environment,” he added.
PMI’s entry into Dharamshala has strengthened its foothold in Himachal Pradesh, where the company has already established a presence by providing and managing a fleet of 50 electric buses in Shimla. Furthermore, PMI has become the only electric bus manufacturer to have a presence in 26 cities nationwide, which highlights the company’s commitment to aiding state governments in their pursuit of sustainable transportation goals.
The company is committed to offering the best transportation solutions that align with the government’s vision of sustainable development and clean mobility. With PMI’s success in operating a fleet of over 1,000 electric buses, it is well-positioned to play a critical role in transforming the public transportation landscape in India, the company said.
