PMI Electro Mobility Solutions Private Limited is a subsidiary of PMI Coaches Private Limited, incorporated in June 2015. The company aspires to be a ‘Zero Emission’ mobility solution provider. A company is planning to target the Commercial Vehicle segment and intends to launch a whole range of Buses (12m, 9m & 6.5m) and trucks & loaders, starting from mini trucks and light commercial vehicle to go up the value chain.
At the inauguration, Kailash Gahlot said:
“This step taken by the Transport Authority is something that should have been done a bit earlier, but as it’s said ‘better late than never’, Delhi’s pollution is challenging every citizen and this measure is a must.
This bus will run on 522 route for three months as a trial period, and till then DIMS will submit a proper report for the expenses that e-bus demands.”
