Shares of electronic bus manufacturing company Olectra Greentech have shot up by almost 50% over the past one month. Although a shift towards electric mobility is happening at a rapid pace, the movement is somewhat gradual for large vehicles like buses and trucks.

Olectra Greetech share price: Reasons for the rise
Partnership with Reliance: The company recently announced the launch of a hydrogen bus in a technical partnership with giant Reliance Industries. The bus can travel a distance of up to 400 km on a single fill of hydrogen.
Notably, Reliance has made its green ambitions very clear, earmarking billions of dollars for the same. In such a scenario, a partnership with a conglomerate like Reliance has been cheered by investors of Olectra Greentech and has been one of the primary reasons for its recent share price surge.

Notably, these buses can cover a range of 325 km on a single charge. The buses will operate between the busy route of Hyderabad in Telengana and Vijaywada in Andhra Pradesh.

Certification receipt: Another very significant cause for the recent rise in the Olectra Greentech share price is certification received by its electric truck from the regulatory authorities.
Olectra Greentech’s electric truck received India’s first ever roadworthiness certification from Indian automobile regulators. This means that Olectra Greentech’s trucks will be the first to ply on Indian roads which are electric.
