Hero Electric with Massive Mobility to set up 10,000 EV charging stations in a year – ET Auto

According to the automaker, this network will be open to all electric vehicles and will push for more standardisation among manufacturers.

New Delhi: Electric two-wheeler maker Hero Electric on Friday said it has partnered with the Delhi-based EV charging solutions startup Massive Mobility to set up 10,000 EV charging stations across the country in the next one year.

According to the automaker, this network will be open to all electric vehicles and will push for more standardisation among manufacturers.

The companies said they jointly conducted a survey to gauge consumer behaviour utilizing their charging stations. “The findings revealed that consumers looked for smart chargers that could be identified through an app over the internet, 16 AMP charging stations and long chords. The Wi-Fi network will help the users set up their profile within the Massive Charging app, make seamless payments utilising the UPI framework and monitor usage,” they said.

Sohinder Gill, CEO, Hero Electric said, “The announcements by the Union Government over the last few months have helped propel the EV industry to the next level. Till date, we have set up close to 1650 charging stations and aim to set up 20K by the end of 2022. This association with Massive Mobility will broaden our efforts to reach our objective. This partnership will not only benefit Hero as a company but the industry as well.”

Shailesh Vickram Singh, co-founder, Massive Mobility, said, “We are looking forward to creating a seamless charging experience for Hero customers through our seamless integration of discovery, booking and payment with chargers deployed around customer lifestyle. Now with “Charger on demand” range anxiety will be history and lead to over 40% adoption of electric two and three-wheelers.”

Massive Mobility is a startup working to design a smart connected network of charging solutions catering to electric 2 and 3-wheelers. Through its cloud-based solutions it enables parking and charging point owners to offer charging services to users.
