Automovill, a full-stack mobility startup has announced a strategic partnership with Midgard Electric. As per the understanding, Midgard Electric will be the EV charging partner at all Automovill-owned outlets.

At present, Automovill operates 70 co-owned workshops-Hubs, and more than 500 partnered - spokes across India. Midgard Electric provides services like EV charging stations, EV ecosystem consultation, EVCS maintenance and monitoring, battery swap charging station and fleet charging management.

In phase 1 the partners aim to add around 500 charging stations through its service centres in Bangalore, Hyderabad, NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata, Jaipur, Ranchi, Patna, Lucknow, and Guwahati, serving the rising demand. The charging infrastructure will be equipped with Level 1 charging stations that meet Bharat AC 001 and DC 001 requirements, which is suitable for charging electric two-, three-, and four-wheelers.

Ramana Sambu, co-founder and CBO, Automovill said, “We understand that e-mobility is the future and given the fact that we aim at meeting all the rising demands in the auto service industry it is the need of the hour to gradually become EV supportive. The association with Midgard is one of the very crucial steps and in sync with our vision. Simultaneously, we will be able to play a bigger role in adding to the establishment of wider charging infrastructure in the country.”

Sabari V, CEO and director, Midgard Electric said, "Midgard Electric is very much delighted to have our association with Automovill and we believe that the automotive industry is getting a phase shift towards electric mobility and the ecosystem needs to be strengthened with adequate charging infrastructure for the entire value chain. We are seeing an exponential increase in the electric vehicle demand in the coming years and are creating EV charging infrastructure at larger scale in the country to accommodate the electric vehicles through our strategic association."

An electric vehicle customer who wishes to use the charging station can use the Automovill smartphone app to locate these charging stations and utilise them for charging depending on the type of connector they have. In most cases, these charging stations will be able to meet Level 1 and Level 2 charging. They will roll out these charging stations across the Automovill network in India in Phase 1 and subsequently to many gated communities, parking stations, malls, and other locations in Phase 2.
