BENGALURU: Encouraged by its initial success, electric cab service start-up Lithium is planning to expand its services in the city. The company started the service here in June with a fleet of 30 cars and is now looking to increase it to 100.
Owing to limited infrastructure for recharging electric cars, it has been providing its services only to the corporate sector. Currently, Lithium is ferrying 1,000 employees of various firms across the city.
Lithium founder Sanjay Krishnan told Express that the company had received a “fantastic response” that allowed it to grow significantly in the past three months.
He said the company is in talks with several MNCs to expand its customer base and 10-15 firms have recently contacted Lithium to avail its service.
Sources said the company has potential to expand, but is being bogged by the lack of necessary infrastructure.
“If there are more high-speed electric chargers, the services can be extended to the general public. However, only a few firms have installed such chargers,” the source said.
