Furthermore, the recent investment by Abdul Latif Jameel in Greaves Electric Mobility is a significant step forward to driving EV technological advancement and achieving India’s target of growing the number of electric vehicles in the country to 30% by 2030.

Speaking on this milestone, Sanjay Behl, CEO & Executive Director, Greaves Electric Mobility, said,

"Our EV megasite was developed with th e intent of accelerating the ecologically-virtuous cycle that our planet deserves, and it is incredible that we have reached the 50,000 mark. Owing to the increased customer awareness, preference for green mobility and a host of incentives offered by different states, we have hit the inflection point for EVs to take off and are optimistic about mass EV adoption in the country. We are extremely proud of the workforce at our Ranipet facility - which consists of over 70% women - for their enormous contribution in achieving this great milestone through their hard work and dedication.”
