Amazon India has been working with several Indian OEMs to build a fleet of vehicles that would ensure environmental sustainability and would reduce their dependence on non-renewable sources. The further acceleration came from the GOI that set up the FAME 2 policy to encourage the adoption of EVs in India.

This pledge is among the various other pledges taken by Amazon to reduce its carbon footprint. In September 2019, Amazon announced its plan to eliminate single-use plastic by June 2020. According to Amazon’s climate pledge, the company will be net-zero carbon by 2040.
