According to several reports, it is believed that e-mobility in India will be led by two- and three-wheelers while the electric vehicle (EV) revolution in the four-wheeler segment will be seen among the fleet operators.

This was concurred by Anirudh Arun, chief operating officer, Blu Smart Mobility, who believes that the initial traction, especially in the four-wheelers segment will come from fleet operators. While speaking to Entrepreneur India during the Start-up Summit 2019 organised by Franchise India, Arun explained that the reason for this is that the current scenario supports adoption of EVs as a part of fleet operator rather than as a personal vehicle.

Explaining Blu Smart's future plans, Arun said the start-up is scaling up its charging infrastructures and is also partnering with people who want to deploy cars on Blu Smart's platform. According to Arun, Blu Smart also has certain algorithms in place which advice them on when and where to charge vehicles.
