PM launches the Mahindra e2o

The Prime Minister Lyonchhen Tshering Tobgay launched the Mahindra e2o at Hotel Tashi Taj, Thimphu yesterday.

During the event, Lyonchhen said that the launch of Mahindra e2o, a zero emission electric vehicle, marks the future of sustainable and effective transport system in Bhutan.

LFY“Mahindra, being so well established, has showcased a vibrant leadership in sustainable transport today. I am very glad that Bhutan has had the opportunity to be a platform for showcasing electric mobility, a proven form of transport,” Lyonchhen spoke at the occasion.

“The distances are short, the energy is cheaper than the rest of the world and we’re willing to subsidize EVs. We have the political and the public will, which translates to an outpouring support to make this electrical initiative successful. We want Bhutan to succeed and I thank Mahindra for allowing Bhutan to succeed,” Lyonchhen said during the launch.
The Mahindra Group also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Royal Government of Bhutan yesterday at the Gyalyong Tshogkhang. The signing of the MoU is expected to promote the usage of EVs in Bhutan toward an effective transport system, environmental conservation and sustainable development. Mahindra will also be assisting Bhutan in setting up charging infrastructure network for EVs across the nation.
