MG Motor India has joined hands with Attero in a new strategic partnership that aims at reusing and recycling Li-ion batteries used in EVs in India after their end-of-life.
Attero conducts its battery end-of-use management in India.
Rajeev Chaba, President and Managing Director, MG Motor India said the company has been continuously working on expanding the ecosystem in the EV space as one of the first entrants in the segment.
“The partnership with Attero gives our customers more confidence with respect to the battery’s end-of-life usage. The move will assist in responsible recycling and will further minimise the carbon footprint of ZS EV users, while supporting the local economy,” Chaba said.
Nitin Gupta, Chief Executive Officer, Attero said the company believes in sustainable approaches as it is committed to the ‘Clean India, Green India’ vision.
“More people are purchasing EVs due to environmental concerns and are readily driving the adoption. At Attero, we are today enabling India to innovate more and disrupt the global paradigm while generating minimal e-waste, wherein we hold more than 30 global patents for our recycling technologies. We are delighted to join hands with MG and feel that Attero is the best match to the high-performance batteries provided in its vehicles,” Gupta said.
MG Motor currently sells the ZS EV in the Indian market, which is retailed at an ex-showroom, New Delhi price of INR 20.99 lakh. The pure electric internet SUV comes with a certified range of 419 km.
