Twenty-six electric buses have been launched in Maharashtra in December 2020.

As part of the FAME India project, 26 e-buses have been launched in Mumbai and were flagged off by Chief minister Uddhav Thackeray.

A total of 340 electric buses have been approved by the Maharashtra state government under the FAME II scheme to preserve the environment and provide a better travel experience. Twenty-six buses were launched by the Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport Undertaking (BEST) on December 4, 2020.

Chief minister Uddhav Thackeray flagged off the buses and went on a ride on one of the buses. He said that he would suggest more electrical buses for Mumbai as they emit less noise reducing noise pollution in the environment. Moreover, he said that the buses have low operational costs. With the lift mechanism, including other passengers' features, thirty-four more buses would be introduced on December 30, 2020. Initially, the 26 buses would run on a north-south corridor between Sion and Cuffe Parade, Mumbai.
