Hero Electric has partnered ElectricPe, an EV charging platform to set-up charging points across India for its customers.
The OEM estimates that with 2 million electric vehicles estimated to be plying the roads by 2026 there will be a huge need to build the charging infrastructure. The collaboration will allow Hero Electric customers to access ElectricPe’s charging network.
The charging point network will be nestled in residential complexes, offices, malls, and other establishments.
Sohinder Gill, CEO, Hero Electric said, “A robust charging network is crucial for the growing EV sector for faster adoption of EVs across the segment. This association will provide a seamless charging and EV riding experience to customers by easing the accessibility through ElectricPe’s charging points that are getting installed on a large scale across the country. With our vision and commitment to advancing the growth of EVs, we are working rigorously to scale up the charging infrastructure. We are confident that the partnership will aid in sustaining the push towards EVs and facilitate a smooth transition towards clean and green mobility solutions.”
Avinash Sharma, co-founder and CEO, ElectricPe said, “Our goal from day one has been to help make the transition to electric mobility smooth by making it inclusive and convenient for consumers across India for their varied commuting activities."
