Yulu, Adani Partner to Provide 24×7 Battery Charging Access in Mumbai

Bengaluru-based e-mobility service provider Yulu has partnered with Adani Electricity Mumbai Limited (AEML), one of the key Mumbai discoms, with the mutual objective of working towards building a sustainable city by reducing traffic congestion and air pollution in Mumbai.

With this collaboration, Yulu will have access to multiple AEML premises across Mumbai, and will work towards identifying and installing its charging stations at suitable locations as it expands across the city. Yulu plans to install over 500 charging stations at AEML premises in the next 18 months across the city.

“YULU has emerged as a prominent player to bring innovation to mobility, first and last-mile connectivity and address the industry challenges to make urban areas more liveable,” states the company. Further, Yulu has expanded its services to short-mile delivery of goods. Its new customized e-bike Yulu DEX provides a sustainable and affordable delivery option that addresses the key challenges faced by gig economy workers; rising fuel prices, inability to buy their personal vehicles, and lack of driving license, added the firm.

AEML spokesperson said, “Adani Electricity is committed to establishing infrastructure for electrifying mobility in Mumbai and supporting Yulu in its journey for providing a sustainable mobility solution to Mumbaikars. AEML is committed to supporting the nation in its goals of achieving a reduction in greenhouse gases (GHG) emission.”

Presently, Yulu e-bikes are majorly deployed in the BKC area and Navi Mumbai, with plans to expand to more areas across Mumbai. AEML will install charging stations at BKC and will scale up across Mumbai as per Yulu’s requirements.

Amit Gupta, Co-Founder, Yulu Bike, said, “This is a great opportunity as AEML and Yulu have a common vision of building a sustainable future with greener commuting solutions. With this collaboration, Yulu will have 24×7 battery charging and swapping access across multiple points in Mumbai and this will be our first step together towards electrification of mobility in Mumbai. We will be installing 500 EV charging stations across Mumbai in the next 18 months.”
