Within a week of the announcement of launching a multi-brand EV retail platform, Greaves Cotton, one of the leading diversified engineering companies in the country has launched its first multi-brand EV retail store ‘AutoEVmart’ in Bangalore, with plans to expand to other cities and towns in a phase-wise manner.

Through the dedicated electric vehicle store, Greaves Electric Mobility aims to bring everything related to EVs under one roof and provide and sell multi-brand electric mobility solutions from Ampere Electric as well as other electric two- and three-wheelers brands in the market. The idea is to provide customers with clear deliverables – wider choice, convenience and unique experience.

The stores will sell products including e-scooters, e-cycles, e-autos, e-loaders and e-rickshaws and retrofitted accessories for both personal and commercial use. The store will also provide an extensive aftersales EV care experience including roadside assistance, easy finance options, comprehensive service packages and e-mobility spares parts.

In the future, customers will be able to choose between numerous options - shopping online with home delivery, shopping online and picking up at a store, shopping at a store and taking merchandise away, or shopping at a store and having it delivered to their home. These features will be part of the AutoEVmart along with services like battery swapping and a variety of auto-care and detailing products. Vehicle augmentation and beautification will be a key focus area at AutoEVmart.
