These days, people are smart and very-well aware of the problems the environment is facing, owing to the high pollution levels. Everybody wants to contribute their bit and make this world a better place to live in, both for them and for the generations to come.

Shed some light on ‘Evera’ and what are the benefits of using it to customers?
The EVERA App offers great benefits to its users and help them in contributing towards the healing of the environment by reducing carbon footprints. By simply scheduling a ride on the app, the customers can enjoy noiseless and smooth drives throughout the city. The brand new and odour less cabs are surely to make their trip a pleasant one and worth every penny along with other benefits including Evera Zero Surge Charge, No Cancellations, No Emissions, Professional Drivers, Comfort & Safety.
Tell us about how have you contributed to the EV roadmap of India?
We are operational in Delhi-NCR, and kick-started with 200 cabs and by the end of March 2020, the numbers will increase to 500. Focussed on offering clean, affordable, and comfortable rides to consumers, EVERA will be offering one-of its kind services in the city. In its first phase, Prakriti plans to introduce 500 EVs on the EVERA Platform with a plan to scale it up to 5,000 EVs within two years.
Prakriti will be partnering with EV manufacturers to offer a brand-new fleet of EVs to its customers with the highest driving range in the segment. Prakriti’s app-based service will have a fleet of ‘Trained and Professional Drivers’ provided by India’s top fleet management companies. To ensure that our customer enjoys the experience of riding with us, it is one of our utmost priorities that our drivers go through multiple trainings exercises to enhance their behavioural and driving skillsets.
It is a big achievement to have 200 EV cars on board which are operational 24X7, to work with fleet management companies with 400 drivers and to have around 50 dedicated employees to work with us, in only 5 months’ time. We have created the largest charging infrastructure in India with 10 fast chargers and 30 slow chargers which are operational 24X7. Also, we have signed up an MoU with Tata motors for supply of EV and have partnered with TATA powers for charging infrastructure and RideCell for app development (a global company) to ensure smooth running of cabs.
When will you launch Evera? What time will it take to expand Evera fleet completely across Delhi/NCR and rest of India?
Our app is being launched this month. Once it’s there in the market, we will soon expand our fleet across major parts of Delhi -NCR. We aim to bring down use of conventional automobiles in the shared mobility space. Regarding expansion, it will take time atleast after the effects of Coronavirus. I will take time for next six months to come to normal. We may expand to more cities by August 2021.
On the technology front how do you ensure the smooth functioning of your services?
We are excited to be working with Ridecell to bring a unique mobility services to India. With advanced Ridecell technology and our in-house IT Team, we can ensure our EV fleet operates at the peak efficiencies and our customer will have a positive and easy experience in booking, locating and riding with Evera including its other benefits.
