Commenting on the partnership, Hero Electric CEO Sohinder Gill said the last year was a tough one, bringing hardships, and forcing everyone to evolve.

"The youth of the country have also looked at working with last-mile delivery solutions and we have forged successful partnerships with companies that are making a difference in the segment.

"Earth Ride's unique lease proposition makes for a win-win solution for us at Hero Electric and the customers. This will work as a catalyst in driving adoption of electric two-wheelers while also transforming the last mile delivery solutions from ICE engines to Electric vehicles," Gill added.

Earth Ride Founder and CEO Dhairya Gupta said, "Not only is this partnership greener for the environment it is also economically beneficial for the riders and the companies...Together with Hero Electric, we are reinventing the market, reading the need of the hour and synergising our energies that will lead to a more sustainable, environmentally friendly and gainful economic future of India".
