Dabur India will roll-out the electric vehicles for its last-mile product distribution over the next 12 months, the business announced on April 19, ET Bureau reported. The first batch of the electric vehicles has already been added to the business’ delivery fleet in North India and is operating on deliveries in Sonipat, Haryana.
