Hero Electric to supply NYX e-scooters to last-mile delivery provider Shadowfax
Hero Electric has collaborated with last-mile delivery provider Shadowfax Technologies for supplying its NYX HX e-scooters to the latter. Under the partnership, Hero Electric will convert around 25 per cent of Shadowfax's 100,000-strong delivery fleet into electric vehicles.
Shadowfax had recently announced that it will convert 75 per cent of its fleet to EVs by 2024, which is in line with the government's push to convert combustion engine vehicles used in the delivery segment to EVs. “We are excited to embark on this journey of electrification of the initial 25 per cent of our existing fleet with Hero Electric," said Abhishek Bansal, Co-founder and CEO of Shadowfax Technologies.
