Amazon India is revving up its delivery game with a brand-new fleet of electric vehicles (EVs), starting with the nifty Mahindra Zor Grand three-wheelers, all jazzed up for the e-commerce giant’s delivery needs. This eco-friendly initiative is part of Amazon’s grand plan to make its delivery network emission-free, and it’s kicking off just in time for the Diwali rush.
Here’s the scoop: Amazon’s delivery partners, all 300-plus of them, are getting a sweet deal with these custom-designed EVs. They’re not just getting the keys to these silent road warriors; they’re also getting the full package — maintenance, charging, and a spot to park.

Over the next couple of years, Amazon plans to electrify its entire last-mile delivery fleet in India. They’ve already rolled out over 6,000 EVs across 400 cities, and they’re charging towards a goal of 10,000 by 2025.
It’s all part of a bigger picture to hit net-zero carbon by 2040, a goal that’s as ambitious as it is crucial for our planet.
Amazon’s been running this electric show in North America and Europe, but India’s the first to see the all-electric fleet program in full swing.
