We appreciate the IFC Eco-Cities Program in driving the initiative in climate change mitigation and fostering electric mobility. Jangid Motors can leverage its experience in manufacturing, distribution, and operations in electric three-wheelers. This will not only foster the entire ecosystem but also complement the public transportation system in the chosen cities under the Program.
