25 electric cars on self-drive rentals were launched at Miyapur Metro station on Friday as part of Hyderabad Metro Rail’s plans to introduce non-polluting vehicles for first and last-mile connectivity.

The service, being provided by self-drive mobility platform Zoomcar, will help facilitate the travel of Metro commuters looking to complete their last mile journey affordably with the convenience of self-drive vehicles, said officials.

The rental charges for the 25 Mahindra e2oPlus cars start at Rs.8.50 per km and offers cost-effective and eco-friendly travel option for commuters. The electric cars can also be rented on a monthly basis at a cost of Rs.10,000 and by paying an advance of Rs.5,000. Commuters can register for the service on a mobile application by submitting their driver’s license.

The service will soon be expanded to enable one-way movement to Madhapur and Gachibowli, for the convenience of IT sector employees looking to commute between Metro stations and offices.

According to N V S Reddy, Hyderabad has become the first city to introduce such a facility at Metro stations. The electric vehicle charging facility, being developed at Miyapur Metro station by Power Grid Corporation of India, will soon be inaugurated. “Nearly 80 per cent of the work has been completed for the electric vehicle charging facility at Miyapur Metro station,” added Reddy.
