Dominos Pizza has partnered with EV maker Revolt Motors to shift its complete petrol bike fleet to electric. According to a recently released statement, Domino's will purchase the existing inventory of Revolt's RV300 bike model as part of the agreement and will gradually acquire its customized Revolt model to change its fleet.
The company claims that is has piloted Revolt bikes for deliveries for a while now, and after successful trials has now collaborated with the EV maker for its green push.
Anjali Rattan, Founder of Rattan India Enterprises Ltd. (REL), said that the company is pleased to collaborate with Domino's which will be beneficial both in terms of environment as well as cost savings.
Revolt claims that its bikes will be specially customized to meet the needs of Jubilant Foodworks, operators of fastfood chains Domino's Pizza, and also enable zero-emission electric delivery experience. Jubilant has one of the country's largest delivery fleets, and this partnership demonstrates that it is also eager to usher in a shift toward cleaner, pollution-free delivery options, said the company.
Revolt Motors, based in Gurugram, currently offers two motorcycle models: the flagship RV400 and the RV300.
Previously known as RattanIndia Infra, the company stated in early April that it was relinquishing the traditional infra market to focus on new growth industries. It announced a 43% share in Revolt Motor for Rs 150 crore in late April.
However, Rattan recently claimed that Revolt Motors will eventually phase out the production of RV 300 model and instead will be introducing a new model, RV1, which will be launched at a lower price.
She said that the company is experiencing higher demand, which has forced it to halt bookings for its bikes several times in the previous two months, and aims to build five lakh bikes per year in the next five years.
