Hero Electric, a pioneer in the electric vehicle industry in India, today announced its Be Safe – Keep Safe program in collaboration with Pathkind Diagnostics – a leader in healthcare and diagnostics. During this COVID-19 crisis, being safe while keeping others safe is very critical.
With that in mind Pathkind Diagnostics found a unique solution of using electric powered Hero Electric scooters to achieve that goal. These scooters would be used by Pathkind to provide end to end, completely safe and fully sanitized sample collection process across the country.
The collaboration between the two organizations is supported by their shared ideology of ‘prevention is better than cure’. While Hero Electric works towards the betterment of environment before it reaches a state where there is no coming back from, Pathkind Diagnostics works towards detecting any signs of early diseases in order to give people a longer, healthier life, especially in these unprecedented and uncertain times.
Collection of test samples from far-flung areas is a stressful job and very costly. Hero Electric scooters provide a perfect solution for a “home to home” commute at a fraction of a cost of a public transport or even a petrol bike. These custom Hero Electric scooters will come with a cargo compartment and a unique branded livery. This would allow riders to safely take and transport samples efficiently and securely across Pathkind’s centres.
Hero Electric scooters will also allow riders to be extra cautious and avoid shared mobility and even petrol pumps where usually currency exchange poses a problem. All these benefits will be accorded to the riders who will also simultaneously be contributing towards a safer, cleaner environment. Hero Electric scooters come with portable light weight Li-batteries that get fully charged in 4 hours, giving riders a range of more than 100 kms. The option of a third battery furthers this range to over 150 kms, thereby addressing any concerns and anxiety over range. Hero Electric scooters have minimal maintenance and service needs thus, taking away the stress from the riders.
The coming together of Hero Electric and Pathkind Diagnostics is a testament to the endless possibilities and potential-usage of EVs in real-life applications across industries. This partnership will set an example for other organizations to also overhaul their fleet in favor of an increase in savings, efficiency, and reduced operational costs.
Hero Electric is ambitious about its expansion in the B2B space and will continue its disruptive efforts in this field through partnering and collaborating with leading organizations across India and support them in their efforts to go green; thereby bringing an eco-friendly change, the company statement said.
