Swiggy will use the funds to bring more quality food brands closer to consumers.

Swiggy, domestic online food ordering and delivery platform, on Saturday said it delivers over 1.5 million orders every month on mechanical cycles. It has a fleet of over 1.7 lakh delivery partners in more than 120 cities.

“A couple of years back we initiated concerted efforts to make deliveries more sustainable for the environment. With close to 10,000 delivery partners on cycles each day, we have found that in some cities the average travel time for a delivery partner on cycles is lesser than bikes,” Srivats TS, Vice-President, Marketing, Swiggy, said in a statement.

Despite a chaotic launch and broken glass, Tesla has received 146,000 orders for its electric pickup called “Cybertruck” which starts from $39,900.

“146k cybertruck orders so far, with 42% choosing dual, 41% tri & 17% single motor,” Musk said in a tweet on Saturday.

He referred to three different versions available: single-motor rear-wheel-drive, dual-motor all-wheel-drive and tri-motor all-wheel drive.

The Tesla CEO added that the orders have come with no advertising and no paid endorsement.

In total, Tesla has reportedly received deposits worth $14.6 million in just two days after unveiling “Cybertruck”.

The truck will come in three versions with 250 miles, 300 miles and 500 miles of range, respectively.

The base version of the truck starts at $39,900, while the prices for the top end Tri-Motor All-Wheel-Drive version of the Cybertruck start at $69,900.

The most expensive version of the truck, the Tri-Motor AWDrive will be able to carry 3,500 pounds, tow up to 14,000 pounds and go from zero to 60 in 2.9 seconds.

It comes with six seats and features armored glass and ultra-strong panels that are made of the same alloys found on spacecraft.
