EESL to procure electric sedans
Energy Efficiency Services (EESL) will procure 10,000 electric sedans in a bid to increase popularity of such vehicles in the country. EESL has called for an international tender to aid in price discovery. The company will procure 1,000 cars in the first phase. To begin with, these cars will be used by government officials in New Delhi and the National Capital Region. EESL plans to charge government officials 90 per cent of their monthly cost of the current vehicles to replace them with the electric ones.
