New Delhi, India – EVRE, India’s leading EV charging infrastructure player, has announced a partnership with Mad About Wheels (MAW), India’s first brand-agnostic electric mobility & automotive solutions and retail services provider, via its phygital platform, to enable EV dealerships across 100+ cities to begin operations with over 500 EV Chargers. EVRE, in collaboration with MAW, will set up public EV charging infrastructure at these 100+ locations, benefiting respective dealer network operators and EV owners by providing easy access to quality EV chargers, primarily in tier-II and III cities.
MAW will enable all deployments at its e-retail partners in association with EVRE, offering them value-added services at no cost to them in terms of asset ownership. EVRE will manufacture, establish, own, and operate this EV charging infrastructure. The tariffs for charging EVs will be in accordance with the electricity tariff in each location and will be enabled via the EVRE App, which is available in all app stores. This addition to their existing infrastructure will provide the dealers with incremental revenue from using the chargers as public infrastructure for walk-ins by EV customers and EV fleet owners.
2W and 3W EVs are a rural phenomenon, and public charging infrastructure will be critical in ensuring the country’s EV revolution gets off to a good start. MAW and EVRE hope to start building the nation’s EV ecosystem with the first EV-ready 100+ dealer network. Implementation will begin with the installation of 100 charging stations in the first 30 cities by March 2022. EVRE and MAW work together to improve charging infrastructure throughout the remaining cities in order to support the rapid growth of EV adoption in these suburban communities.
