BluSmart Electric Cab Service

BluSmart is India’s first-ever Electric Cab service, founded to promote environmental sustainability and to provide reliable, safe and affordable rides.

With pre-existing cab services such as Ola and Uber taking over public transportation, we often tend to forget the sustainability factor involved. This is why BluSmart is aiming at becoming the ‘Smart’er version of them. 

Why BluSmart?

One of the main reasons why BluSmart’s services stand out, is their emphasis on hygiene, especially after the pandemic. The onset of Covid forever changed the trajectory of our lives.

During the pandemic’s peak, we were super conscious and cautious about everything we came in contact with. It’s debatable if Covid still has that impact on us. But one thing that’s not debatable? The importance of sanitisation and hygiene.

This is why BluSmart is working towards being India’s cleanest mobility solution. They say, “We are here for a reason. We are on a mission to steer urban India towards a sustainable means of transportation and to provide them with efficient, affordable, intelligent, safe and reliable mobility.

And if you’re anything like Sheldon Cooper, you know there’s absolutely no room for germs. This is exactly why booking why BluSmart makes you smarter than the rest. Their cabs are sanitized after every ride it is mandatory for everyone to wear marks, especially during Covid.

Tired of having your booking cancelled for no apparent reason? At BluSmart, your drivers can’t cancel on you, in fact, the drivers do not even have access to a cancel button. Additionally, they open the car door for you. Go, get that special treatment, you!

Founders of BluSmart

Headquartered in Haryana and Mumbai, BluSmart was founded in January 2019 by Anmol Singh Jaggi, Punit K Goyal and Puneet Singh Jaggi with the objective of making sustainable means of transportation in India. 

Anmol Jaggi, a graduate of the University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, founded Gensol Group in 2007, which is India’s largest Renewable Energy Services provider and now has a team of over 600 engineers and technicians.

Puneet Jaggi, a graduate of IIT Roorkee, is a clean energy enthusiast. He has been an advisor to 30 GW of Renewable Energy Projects, Digitized 10 GW and operate 3 GW of Renewable Energy Projects. He joined his brother, Anmol, at Gensol in 2010 as a co-founder.

Punit Goyal has an honorary doctorate degree in Business Administration from Aston University, UK, and has also attended Harvard Business School. Prior to BluSmart, Punit also worked on similar projects. He was co-founder of PJG Clean Energy projects where a renewable energy portfolio of 100 MW solar power plants in India was developed.

He was also the CEO and founder of PLG Power Limited for 6 years till 2014 where they exported 72 MV solar panels to Europe between 2008 to 2011. It’s more than safe to say that BluSmart is in the hands of one of the smartest people around.

Environmental sustainability at its finest

India is still one of the most unhygienic places in the world and is in desperate need of a revolution. It has been ranked 3rd in the list of countries with the highest carbon footprint emissions in the world. Transportation is a significant factor in the nation’s air quality, but as long as people travel, pollution isn’t going anywhere. Hence, in order to make sustainable changes in transportation, BluSmart is working endlessly to promote clean energy.

With sustainability being at the core of our operations, our vision is to help transform the Indian cities by building a holistic and comprehensive electric on-demand mobility platform.”

With over 6.5 million clean rides completed and over 14,500 tonnes of  CO2 emissions saved [equivalent to what 2,421,249+ fully-grown trees absorb in a year], BluSmart offers zero-emission rides, which means that no harmful greenhouse gases like CO2 and methane are released in the air.

In 2022, BP Ventures invested in BluSmart, raising a total of $25 million in Series A, which is said to be the world’s largest Series A round in the mobility sector. This year, BluSmart raised $42 million through a bridge round led by BP Ventures and Survam Partners.

Although their services are only accessible in parts of Delhi and Gurugram, we hope that BluSmart hits the roads of Indian cities, quite literally.
