Lithium Ur­ban Tech­nolo­gies, founded in 2015 by San­jay Kr­ish­nan and Ash­win Ma­hesh in Ban­ga­lore, have been able to add 10+ equiv­a­lent Cub­bon Parks to Ban­ga­lore (200 Tonnes = 1 park). The all-elec­tric cab ser­vice to busi­nesses clocked to­tal mileage of more than 10 mil­lion kilo­me­ters by mid 2017 and pre­vented re­lease of 20,400,00,000 grams of car­bon-di-ox­ide.

Lithium is In­dia’s first all-elec­tric so­lu­tion in the B2B seg­ment. The com­pany re­cently ex­panded oper­a­tions to Delhi, which needs the most, be­ing called out as one of the most pol­luted cities.

The fleet size is 400+ EVS part of the fleet and cur­rently in Ban­ga­lore and Delhi NCR with a tie-up with ten cor­po­rate. Lithium has helped es­tab­lish the fact that elec­tric ve­hi­cles are the fu­ture of ur­ban mo­bil­ity in In­dian cities and a vi­able so­lu­tion for re­duc­ing pollution lev­els.

“There is a great de­mand to al­ter the en­vi­ron­ment we live in and it is not only the Govern­ment but the cor­po­rates too who are mak­ing a big ef­fort to change the state we live in. The need to adopt greener ways has made cor­po­rates re­alise that fol­low­ing the EV way would make that change and thus cre­ate a larger im­pact in the en­vi­ron­ment,” Praveen Salins se­nior ex­ec­u­tive at the com­pany told Sus­tain­abil­i­tyNext.
