Leading commercial Electric Vehicle (EV) manufacturer Altigreen on Tuesday announced that it has partnered with the Delhi-based EV charging solutions start-up Massive Mobility to install 25,000 on-demand charging stations in the next two years. According to a press release from the company, the Bengaluru-based firm is already catalysing the EV ecosystem and last-mile delivery in the country with its on-road commercial electric 3Ws. Now it has mandated Massive Mobility to set up charging stations in towns and cities across the country. With this step, the two companies will put to rest the concerns over in-city charging infrastructure.
The Massive-Altigreen charging network will be accessible to all EVs, regardless of ownership, type, brand, or model, and motivate other EV manufacturers to standardise the charging infrastructure. In addition, Massive Mobility also commissions owners of the parking & charging points to offer charging nodes to EV drivers through its cloud-based solutions. Its chargers are already live at more than 150+ locations across Delhi-NCR. To make the experience more trouble-free for drivers, the Massive charging app helps users set up their profile online, identify & book a charging station slot, make payments utilising the UPI framework, and monitor usage.
Dr Amitabh Saran, CEO, Altigreen, said, “Aligning our goals with Massive Mobility will help us to boost EV adoption across the country. We believe that leveraging the company’s expertise in designing a smart, integrated network of charging stations will help us to achieve our collective goals.”
Shailesh Vickram Singh, Founder, Massive Mobility, said,“With the ‘charger on-demand’, range anxiety, earlier associated with electric vehicles, is becoming a thing of the past, and will eventually lead to dramatic increase in adoption of EVs in 2w/3w space.”
