This should reduce a chunk of the transportation cost for delivery personnel.
- The step comes as a first in the food delivery segment
- The TVS iQube packs a range of 100km in its base variant.
- TVS has priced the iQube from Rs 1.41,533 onwards.
TVS Motor Company has joined forces with Zomato to enhance their last-mile delivery services. To kick-start this collaboration, 50 TVS iQube electric scooters were given to Zomato's delivery partners at a special event in Hyderabad. This was made possible through Chartered Bikes x BLive, a fleet operator.
The partnership between TVS Motor and Zomato aims to deploy more than 10,000 TVS electric scooters within a span of two years. Here are more details about the scooter’s range and battery capacity.

Moreover, TVS Motor will ensure that Zomato's delivery partners have convenient access to charging stations located nearby. They will also facilitate seamless digital integration to make the delivery process smoother and more efficient.
Zomato is actively teaming up with more than 50 companies involved in the electric vehicle (EV) ecosystem. Their goal is to bring on board over 100,000 EV-based delivery partners onto their platform within the next two years. This collaboration with TVS Motor significantly boosts their efforts, given TVS Motor's esteemed reputation in the field of sustainable mobility.

On the whole, the TVS iQube is quite a likeable and easy-going scooter, something all the delivery personnel will definitely appreciate. Given that a lot of them might not have had previous EV experiences, it would be nice for them as opposed to something more sporty and faster like the Ather 450X, a scooter they could find to be slightly overwhelming.
