In a significant move towards sustainable transportation, Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) has become the first public sector undertaking (PSU) in Bangalore to incorporate electric vehicles (EVs) into its fleet. The company has leased 32 Tata Express electric cars from a travel agency to replace diesel-powered vehicles previously used by senior officials for daily commuting.

This initiative by BEL aligns with Bangalore’s growing focus on promoting eco-friendly transportation solutions. The city has witnessed a rise in EV adoption in recent times, and BEL’s decision serves as a positive example for other organizations to follow suit.

The switch to electric cars is expected to bring about a reduction in tailpipe emissions, contributing to cleaner air in Bangalore. Additionally, the EVs boast lower operational costs compared to their diesel counterparts, leading to potential long-term savings for BEL.

This development comes amidst a nationwide push for EV adoption in India. The government has introduced various incentives to encourage the sale and use of electric vehicles, with the aim of reducing dependence on fossil fuels and promoting environmental sustainability.
