Etrio partners to supply Zypp Electric with EV 3 wheelers for last-mile delivery

Etrio, India’s fastest growing electric vehicle (EV) start-up with an aim of electrifying intra city transportation has recently joined hands with the largest two-wheeler logistics startup, Zypp Electric to scale up the latter’s last-mile delivery with a three-wheelers fleet.

Under this association, 100 Etrio flagship brand Touro three-wheelers are going to be operational soon and this will scale up to 1000 three-wheelers in the next 6-8 months. To start with, Zypp will deploy Etrio’s Touro Mini in Delhi NCR i.e Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Ghaziabad & Faridabad. This will further be bolstered by presence across geographies in India. Etrio will provide end-to-end service support through its dealer network along with a dedicated relationship manager for maximum uptime.

Zypp Electric is touted to be the largest last-mile delivery EV player with a fleet of 1000+ e-scooters and now their entry into 3-wheelers suggests that their stronghold in the market to capture the last-mile delivery market is wider and deeper. They partner across e-commerce, e-grocery, hyperlocal delivery merchants and deliver over 3 lac shipments daily. Adding 3-wheelers extends their footprint and options for their customers to cover medium to large size shipments too. Some of their customers for which Touro would be deployed include Swiggy, Zomato, Big Basket, Apollo Pharmacy etc.

The three-wheeler segment has been the front-runner in India’s all-electric mobility vision by contributing over 70 per cent of overall electric vehicle sales. However, the majority of the same has been led by the unorganized e-rickshaw market, with lead-acid batteries, poor build quality, numerous breakdowns, and lack of stability of the product. Touro is the signature e-auto designed by Etrio that aims to set a new benchmark amongst the e-rickshaws / e-loaders in the market. Etrio has adopted rigorous design principles for developing a made-in-India Touro three-wheeler range and has created Touro Mini to address every customer concern ranging from stability, driveability, durability, and real-world performance. This truly makes it a Made in India and Made for India e-Auto.

The technological edge including state-of-the-art optical telematics of this workhorse helps the logistics and e-commerce operators supervise vehicle usage and monitor the real-time status of each vehicle including the current charging level. Touro saves up to 60-70 per cent of the operating costs as compared to a diesel three-wheeler and preventive maintenance of Touro helps fleet operators keep their fleet in good shape. At the same time, human issues such as misuse of vehicles or rash driving patterns can be easily identified, and suitable countermeasures can be put in place. The fleet operator is always in complete control of Etrio’s Touro.

Commenting on the announcement, Deepak MV, Co-founder & CEO, Etrio said, “Since the launch of Touro early this year, we have seen a phenomenal response coming in from both institutional and retail customers. Touro Mini sets a new standard in the e-rickshaw/ e-loader category and the positive feedback on the product has bolstered our efforts to build best-in-class products for the last-mile delivery market. Our association with Zypp Electric is a major stride in our mission to electrifying intra-city logistics. We are delighted to partner with Zypp Electric with this product offering and are committed to providing the best of service to upscale their three-wheeler fleet and to our overarching goal to become an undisputed market leader in this category.”

Akash Gupta, Co-founder & CEO, Zypp Electric said, “Zypp is a leading and largest two-wheeler logistic brand, boosting last-mile deliveries through its robust fleet and cutting edge technology via App and dashboards to all its partners. Having said that, Zypp wanted to go a step further and do an alliance with a strong OEM in the three-wheeler segment where partnering with Etrio has been a great decision. Etrio being a leading OEM in the three-wheeler segment in recent years, Zypp and Etrio share some great synergies and we are looking forward to scaling this up with both L3 and L5 models to serve the fast-growing last-mile delivery segment.”
