As part of the agreement, TVS Motor and Swiggy will evaluate the use of TVS Motor’s EVs for food delivery and other Swiggy on-demand services.  

The two companies are collaborating to develop long-term, comprehensive solutions for Swiggy’s delivery partners.

This is their first effort towards demonstrating their commitment to electrified commercial mobility.  

He also expressed his excitement about the partnership with Swiggy, who are the market leaders in Indian food and on-demand delivery.  

Saxena concluded by saying that Swiggy is also leading the creation of a broad and sustainable e-mobility ecosystem in the nation.
