EverSource Capital-backed shared electric mobility platform GreenCell Mobility on Monday said it plans to deploy 50 electric buses in four districts of the state in a phased manner for inter-city travel. The first such bus is set to be launched on the Ahmednagar-Pune route from June 1, the company said in a statement.

These standard luxury coaches with Li-ion battery-fitted and air-conditioned cabins come with fast charging capability (90-120 minutes) and can run up to 250 km in single charge, it said.

Electric bus adoption has gained traction in India and multiple cities with state governments electrifying their bus-based transport system. This has been further accelerated by the Government of India's Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles in India (FAME) Phase – II scheme, the company said.
