BluSmart Mobility offers flexible pricing for electric cabs

BluSmart Mobility, India’s first and leading electric ride-hailing platform, has announced a new pricing structure for its customers. The structure consists of two tiers – ‘rush hours’ and ‘relaxed hours’. The company claims that this will help customers save money and reduce carbon emissions by choosing electric cabs over conventional ones.

What are rush hours and relaxed hours?

According to BluSmart Mobility, rush hours are the peak times when the demand for cabs is high and the traffic is congested. These are usually between 8 AM to 11 AM and 5 PM to 8 PM on weekdays. Relaxed hours are the off-peak times when the demand for cabs is low and the traffic is smooth. These are usually between 11 AM to 5 PM on weekdays and all day on weekends.

The company has introduced different pricing for rush hours and relaxed hours to encourage customers to travel during the off-peak times and avoid the peak times. This will help reduce the congestion on the roads and the pollution in the air. The company also says that this will benefit the customers by offering them lower fares and faster rides during the relaxed hours.

What are the benefits of electric mobility?

Electric mobility is the future of transportation, as it offers many benefits for the environment, the economy, and the society. Some of the benefits of electric mobility are:

  • It reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which are the main cause of global warming and climate change. According to BluSmart Mobility, it has reduced over 400 tonnes of CO2 emissions over the last two years by running electric cabs in Delhi-NCR and Bengaluru.
  • It improves air quality, which is a major health concern in many Indian cities. According to a study by the Centre for Science and Environment, electric vehicles can reduce particulate matter emissions by 80% and nitrogen oxide emissions by 90% compared to conventional vehicles.
  • It enhances energy security, as it reduces the dependence on imported fossil fuels, which are volatile and expensive. According to a report by NITI Aayog, India can save up to $60 billion in oil imports by 2030 by adopting electric vehicles.
  • It creates employment opportunities, as it stimulates the growth of the electric vehicle industry, which includes manufacturing, charging, servicing, and recycling. According to a study by the International Labour Organization, electric mobility can create up to 11 million jobs in India by 2030.

BluSmart Mobility is one of the leading players in the electric mobility sector in India, and aims to make electric cabs accessible and affordable for everyone. The company hopes that its new pricing structure will attract more customers to choose electric cabs over conventional ones, and contribute to the vision of a green and smart mobility future.
