Mahindra World City, EVRE partners to enable EV-ready 1,500-acre commercial township
Mahindra World City, Chennai has announced that it has arrived into a partnership with electric vehicle (EV) charging and battery swapping solutions provider EVRE to facilitate EV-readiness for the country's first public-private partnership (PPP) commercial integrated township spread over 1,500 acres.
With this implementation, Mahindra World City Chennai, which is an 89:11 coalition between Mahindra Lifespace Developers and Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation (TIDCO), will be the country's largest electric vehicle compliant commercial space.
As per the agreement, EVRE will install charging stations at several locations in the integrated city over the next three years. The first batch of charging points will be made available to the customers by the end of this month.
"Mahindra World City, Chennai, India's first integrated city established in PPP, is a future-focused, planned, integrated development that has been built and operates on environmentally responsible principles and is already the chosen business destination for over 65 transnational and Indian companies. We recognize that the future of mobility is expected to veer towards electric vehicles and have thus partnered with EVRE to set up charging points across Mahindra World City," said Rajaram Pai, Chief Business Officer – Industrial, Mahindra Lifespace Developers.
Through this project, EVRE will install its patented product, Intellipole that is a solar streetlight integrated with a hybrid charger compatible with 2, 3, and 4 wheelers, and an Air Quality Index system.
The streetlight and the AQI Index will bank upon solar power as a symbol for the drive towards using clean energy systems through sustainable measures.
