Hero Electric, Massive Mobility partners to set up 10,000 EV charging stations
Hero Electric has announced that it has partnered with EV startup Massive Mobility to set up 10,000 charging stations across the country by next year. The EV charging network, when up and running, would be open to all-electric vehicles and will lead to standardization between manufacturers.
Through this partnership, Hero Electric looks to ramp up the charging infrastructure across the country to help drive and encourage the adoption of electric mobility.
The company intends to set up 10,000 stations with Massive Mobility and an extra 10,000 on its own by next year-end.
"Announcements by the government of India over the last few months have helped propel the EV industry onto the next level. We continue to expand our reach, setting up charging points and reskilling mechanics to create an ecosystem," Hero Electric CEO Sohinder Gill said in a declaration.
The company has been investing in plotting low-cost charging stations over the last few years to foster the growth of the charging infrastructure, he added.
"Till date, we have set up close to 1,650 charging stations and aim to set up 20K by the end of 2022," he noted.
The association with Massive Mobility will broaden the company's efforts to reach its objective as the partnership would benefit the overall industry, Gill said.
