When Sebastian Fuchs decided to hop on to the newly-launched air-conditioned electric bus in Delhi, the idea was to have a fun ride and spread awareness around the initiative. Sebastian, the German Embassy spokesperson in Delhi, along with press officer Zainab went on a ride in the newly-launched electric bus in Delhi and shared their joy on social media.
Their post about the ride caught the attention of not just the Twitteratti but even Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. He retweeted the post and appreciated their efforts to spread the word around electric mobility.
Sebastian, sharing his experience about the e-bus ride, said, “We in the German embassy read in yesterday’s news that the Delhi government has introduced 150 electric buses. We loved the idea. Germany and India have been working together to combat climate change and make our lives more sustainable.”
Last week, the Delhi government approved the process of 1,500 low-floor electric buses in its public transportation fleet and 150 were flagged off yesterday.
“We were very happy to know that the city is going green. It was nice of the Delhi chief minister to repost our tweet which was going well on social media. We are very happy about these buses. It’s a good way in Delhi’s efforts to go green and we had to be a part of it,” Sebastian added.
