Now we have 1300 electric vehicles in Delhi and we will continue to strengthen Delhi’s transport system.” Further, CM said that success never happens overnight It is a guaranteed result of consistency! We are moving forward once again with a record 1300 e-buses.” Later addressing a press conference the minister said the inclusion of buses is a strong step in the fight against pollution.

“Pollution levels increase in winters CNG bus emits 800 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer. An electric bus saves the same amount of carbon dioxide going into the atmosphere,” CM said. Before Thursday’s induction, 800 electric buses were scheduled to run on Delhi roads from January 2022. The minister said, these buses have covered a distance of more than 42 million (4 crore 20 lakh) kilometers and have reduced more than 34,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide so far. By 2025, Delhi will have a total of 10,480 buses, of which 80 percent of the fleet will be electric buses. According to the Chief Minister, this will help in reducing 4.67 lakh tonnes of carbon dioxide annually. The new buses are air-conditioned, comfortable, and equipped with CCTV cameras and panic buttons.
