Earlier this month, Switch Mobility Automotive Ltd won a bid to operate 40 zero-emission buses under the FAME-II scheme.These electric buses will be supplied with fast charging technology, and will provide service within the route plans set by the Chandigarh Transport Undertaking (CTU). On average, this fleet of 40 state-of-the-art electric buses will reduce carbon emissions by 1700 tonnes each year. Switch will maintain and operate the fleet end-to-end, and the charging infrastructure will be developed across four locations (Depot-3, ISBT-17, ISBT-43 & PGI) in the Tri-city.
“Switch Mobility is delighted to partner with CCBSS Chandigarh towards a common goal of sustainability, through deployment of these 40 zero carbon buses. We aim to reduce carbon emissions in the city of Chandigarh through these zero tail-pipe emission vehicles. The cost of ownership and the product experience which we can deliver is amongst the best in the country. We believe that our ability to bring value to customers combined with our superior technology and innovation will help us win many more such orders in future.” Mahesh Babu, Chief Operating Officer of Switch Mobility
