Piaggio Vehicles Pvt Ltd (PVPL) and Bengaluru-based city logistics startup City Link Portal have joined hands for the auto maker’s electric vehicles business, a release said on Monday.
PVPL is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Italian Piaggio Group and a major player in the domestic small commercial vehicles space. City Link is rapidly evolving in EV last mile space and making quick strides in amassing a sizeable EV portfolio.
“Piaggio is proud to contribute to City Link’s Think Green Think EV initiative by providing Ape’ Electrik range of vehicles. We are confident that our technology will enable City Link in providing sustainable, efficient & lower operating cost goods delivery solutions to its customers,” Saju Nair, EVP-CV business, PVPL said.
Puneet Prakash, Co-founder and CEO, City Link said the association with Piaggio holds immense value for the company. “Though we had projected a number of 100 EVs at launch, with Piaggio we are confident to increase our EV range multi-fold within this financial year itself,” he added.
