The Marathwada Auto Cluster has launched the Aurangabad Mission Green Mobility initiative, which will help the city purchase 250 four-wheel electric vehicles by the end of March this year. According to a PTI report, around 150 electric vehicles have already been documented, said Munish Sharma, chairman of the Marathwada Auto Cluster.

With the planned purchase of 250 electric vehicles, the two-class city is in the first phase of the initiative to promote electromobility among city dwellers. It also wants to buy 500 electric tricycles for different purposes such as loading and passenger transport, 1,000 electric two-wheelers and 50 electric buses. These will be taken to Aurangabad and parts of the Marathwada region, former CMIA chairman Ashish Garde said in the report. He added that through this initiative, electric vehicles will be made available for the test drive at seven locations across the city.

Sharma initially shared that people from different industries will buy 250 electric vehicles. “So far we have completed the initial formalities for almost 150 cars of their choice,” he added. He further said that it will not take much time for two-tier cities like Aurangabad to have infrastructure for charging electric vehicles. “But if we take care of high-impact activity, the infrastructure can catch up at pace due to the number of electric vehicles available here,” Sharma explained.
