Growth Challenges

BluSmart faces many obstacles to its expansion, which is different from other companies. BluSmart’s hub-to-hub business model means that there is a lack of infrastructure for charging in India and range anxiety about EVs. This poses severe obstacles to the company’s expansion. High maintenance costs could further hinder its growth as drivers do not own their cars.

Last Words

Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. (Mahindra) partnered with BLU Smart on June 4, 2019, to launch a unique, connected, and all-electric ride-sharing service in India’. BLU Smart will introduce 70 Mahindra EVerito premium sedans to NCR/Delhi during the initial launch phase as part of this strategic partnership. BLU Smart’s competitive advantage was its affordable pricing and lack of surge. The deployed fleet would include premium all-electric sedans as well as SUVs. There would also be a shorter wait time, more skilled drivers, and no cancellations by drivers. 

Mahindra’s electric vehicles (EVs) were equipped with Next Generation Mobility Connected features that allow BLU Smart to optimize its fleet usage. Despite this, there were few obstacles to the mass adoption of EVs. These included the high cost of lithium-ion battery packs, which made these vehicles extremely expensive, and a lack of charging stations. An EV has only 20 moving parts, which is significantly different from a petrol or diesel car with more than 2,000 parts. This would likely make most of the component companies in the auto industry redundant and could lead to significant job losses in the sector. Ola, Uber, and Zoomcar would likely challenge BLU Smart. 

Despite all odds, there was a ray of light as the Government of India reduced GST rates for EVs/chargers to make them more affordable and encourage mass adoption. Is it possible for BLU Smart, the country’s ride-hailing company, to control this environment?
