by Autocar Pro News Desk , 22 Jan 2019

Magenta Power, a Mumbai-based company that caters to the renewable energy solutions and EV charging infrastructure space in India, recently launched an end-to-end AC charging platform for electric vehicles under the ’ChargeGrid Pro‘ series. Charge Grid shall be made available at Rs.19,750.

Magenta Power claims that its latest initiative ‘ChargeGrid Pro Community AC Charger’ is in sync with the recently announced guidelines from the power ministry for EV charging infrastructure. As per the guidelines, based on the occupancy pattern and the total parking provisions in the premises of various building types, charging infrastructures shall be provided only for electric vehicles, which is  20 percent of all ‘vehicle holding capacity’ at the premise.

The ChargeGrid Pro series comes integrated with wireless monitoring and data logging all enabled via ChargeGrid’s online and mobile platform.  With no dedicated manpower for operations or collections; one parking lot can serve multiple users.

The company claims that ChargeGrid Pro Community AC Charger made specifically for residential societies is lightweight and compact with maximum efficiency and superior power density. 

With the concept of 'Made in India. Made for India' the ChargeGrid Pro series is claimed to be just a quarter of the price of similar products available internationally. The process of installation makes it possible to be installed anywhere and everywhere be it co-operative societies, bungalows or office buildings.

Speaking on the new launch, Maxson Lewis, director, Magenta Power said, “We, at Magenta believe that EV adoption should follow a systematic and structured solution approach with a ‘Made for India’ philosophy. Trying to directly copy the international EV infrastructure models will not work. We are guiding many OEMs and townships in setting up the right infrastructure to make EV adoption easier and faster. There are multiple solutions that we are bringing to the market. We are sure that our next generation will have much cleaner roads to travel and much cleaner air to breath.”
