Can JV’s Bridge Government Push for EVs?
Gentari, a Malaysian-based clean energy solutions company and a wholly owned subsidiary of PETRONAS, has partnered with Tata Motors to deliver 5,000 units of electric commercial vehicles over the next three years in India. The agreement was signed through Gentari's affiliate entity, Amplus Power Supply Private Limited. This partnership marks a new segment in the urban delivery ecosystem that can be electrified and is aligned with the Indian government's goal of achieving 30% electric vehicle penetration by 2030.
The first year of the agreement will see the delivery of 1,000 units to cities such as Delhi, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Pune, and Kolkata. The vehicles will be used for deliveries in sectors such as e-commerce, e-grocery, logistics, and FMCG.
Impact on India's Push for EVs
This move is in line with the Indian government’s goal of having electric vehicles makeup 30% of the total vehicles on the road by 2030. The partnership represents a new segment in the urban delivery ecosystem that can be electrified, contributing to India's efforts to reduce air pollution in urban areas. The shift towards electric vehicles will also reduce India's dependence on fossil fuels, enhancing the country's energy security.
