Various places in Hyderabad were lit up in blue light on February 6 to mark the beginning of E-mobility week in the city. The week began with an electric vehicle (EV) rally event.
With the objective of showcasing Telangana’s progress in EV adoption and promoting the message of sustainable mobility, the EV rally saw thousands of EV enthusiasts riding their electric 2-wheelers, 3-wheelers, and electric buses through different parts of the city. Two separate rallies, one from People’s Plaza and another from Miyapur metro station spanned the entire city and culminated at the HITEX Exhibition Centre.
Speaking on the occasion, Jayesh Ranjan, Principal Secretary, Industries & Commerce (I&C) and Information Technology (IT), Telangana said, “The government of Telangana is offering incentives and subsidies to encourage people to shift to e-vehicles. As a result, the State is not only seeing an increase in EV users, but also becoming a hub for all-round EV R&D and manufacturing.”
The rally also saw participation from various Government organisations and industry partners, including, Telangana State Road Transport Corporation, Citreon, TVS, Ola, Ather, Uber, Gravton, Quantum, Atum Motors, Bud-e Bikes, Pure EV and Eto, among others.
