In numbers: How cab aggregators are electrifying their fleets

Ride-hailing companies and cab aggregators are electrifying their fleets even as the government pushes for use of more electric vehicles (EVs) in public transport systems. Last month, Tata Motors signed the largest such deal with Uber — the cab aggregator will induct 25,000 Xpres–T electric cars into its premium ride-share offering over three years. While EV sales have been dominated by the personal use segment so far, can shared mobility platforms take volumes to the mass level? Lijee Philip crunches numbers.
