Zoomcar and SPARKCARS to boost EV car adoption in self-drive space

The companies will introduce over 1,000 electric vehicles to Zoomcar's platform across India within the next two years.

India's electric vehicle (EV) revolution just got a major boost with the collaboration of Zoomcar, the recent NASDAQ-listed leading marketplace for car sharing in emerging markets, and SPARKCARS, a pioneering EV self-drive rental company.

As the rental market continues to evolve, this partnership will help increase the supply of EV cars available for self-drive to meet the growing needs of convenient and independent travel and will also be a strategic move to increase awareness of the higher economic value of EV hosts in the burgeoning rental economy.

Zoomcar and SPARKCARS will introduce over 1,000 electric vehicles to Zoomcar's platform across India within the next two years. These additions will include popular models such as the TATA Nexon, Mahindra XUV 400, Citroen eC3, and many others, offering users a diverse array of eco-friendly options for their mobility needs. Contrasted with conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) counterparts, hosts providing EV rentals yield a higher economic benefit by capitalising on high demand, special pricing, and low operating costs due to minimal maintenance requirements.

"With the government's growing focus on boosting the EV ecosystem, we are proud to grow in the same direction, facilitating this evolution together with SPARKCARS for a cleaner, greener future. We are not just adding EVs to our platform; we are empowering our guests with a variety of sustainable choices and opening the doors to the disproportionate economic value that EV hosts can earn as compared to ICE," said Greg Moran, CEO and Co-Founder, Zoomcar.

Mehul Agrawal, CEO and Co-Founder of SPARKCARS, said, "We have been working towards fulfilling our vision of enabling a sustainable mobility transition in India for quite some time. Together with a market leader like Zoomcar, we are now more confident in our shared abilities to achieve this goal at a much faster pace, aligning seamlessly with India's climate commitments and the Prime Minister's Mission Life initiative."

To commemorate the beginning of this transformative partnership, Zoomcar and SPARKCARS co-delivered their first guest booking in the presence of Adarsh Menon, President of Zoomcar, and Mehul Agrawal, co-founder of SPARKCARS.
