What is Zypp?
Zypp is a platform found by Akash Gupta and Rashi Agarwal in August 2017 providing rental electric bikes and electric scooters to B2B and B2C in India. Zipp aims to solve the short travel distances that are less than 5Km. They have come up with an app that assists you to locate an electric scooter or bike near you, unlock it by scanning the QR code, drive it, and then park it back in Zypp Parking Circle. Their mission is to reduce oil-guzzling cars and bikes on Indian roads.
India’s huge population makes it difficult to commute comfortably on roads. Also, roads in the country are narrow disabling cars to commute on them. India is a huge market for e-commerce that requires last mile deliveries, these deliveries are done on petrol bikes. Most of these bikes are old and not much fuel efficient which makes them more costly to run and are causing pollution. The operating costs can be cut down tremendously if these last mile deliveries are done by electric two-wheelers. The electric two-wheeler rentals will be a good alternative for cabs.
As said earlier e-commerce and food delivery companies rely on petrol two-wheelers that consume more fuel and costs more to operate as petrol price hikes are common in the country. This inefficiency and costs can be cut down if they use electric two-wheelers.
Zypp provides electric two-wheelers with and without a driver as your needs. They also provide electric scooters for Zomato and Swiggy delivery riders.
