(INDIA)

A global initiative striving to make ‘electric transport the new normal by 2030’ has welcomed its latest members.

The State Bank of India (SBI) and Wipro Limited have committed to shifting to electric vehicles (EV) – after joining the Climate Group’s EV100 campaign this week.

 

“We are thrilled to welcome Wipro and SBI to EV100. Their leadership on electric vehicles will send a strong demand signal to the market in India and beyond. We expect many more companies to follow their lead, joining hands with the government to bring about a faster roll-out of electric vehicles, boosting low-carbon economic development for all,” said Jarnail Singh, India Director, The Climate Group.

 

SBI will set up charging stations and transition its entire fleet to EV – across major cities – by 2030; with Wipro aiming to have 1000 on the roads by 2023. The two new additions bring the total number of EV100 cross-sectoral international members to 18.
