Inc's Indian unit said on Tuesday it will deploy close to a hundred electric three-wheeler vehicles made by Mahindra Electric in seven cities across the country.

The move will help Amazon India meet its target of employing 10,000 electric vehicles in its fleet of delivery vehicles by 2025, as announced by the company in January last year.
