My Words

Lithium Urban has seen a very good growth in the past and now planning to play a big game this year. Expanding it’s renewable energy powered charging hub and also targeting to bring electric buses under the brand. Lithium Urban has also tied up with BYD for new electric buses and hopefully very soon those will start the operation in major cities like Delhi, Gurgaon, Banglore etc.. Until now, the company has provided it’s services to many corporate companies and still lot of scope is there. We wish all the luck for the future operation and spreading the awareness about the electric vehicle in the society.
