Prakriti E- Mobility has signed an agreement with Tata Power, to provide state-of-the-art charging infrastructure to support Prakriti’s EV Taxi fleet in Delhi-NCR. Both partners will set up 30 slow chargers and 5 fast chargers across Delhi-NCR region. Tata Power will be responsible for the designing, procurement, installation and management of all charging infrastructure at selected locations across Delhi-NCR.

These chargers along with the public chargers installed by Tata Power will be used by Prakriti’s fleet of ‘Evera’ Cabs for charging their electric vehicles.  The first phase of five chargers to be installed at Jasola, is a part of road map of up to 50 charging installations, to be installed near the Delhi Airport, Gurgaon and North Delhi, in line with the increase in Prakriti’s fleet of ‘Evera’ Cabs.
Prakriti E-Mobility, co-founded by Nimish Trivedi, Vikas Bansal and Rajeev Tiwari, is an app-based EV taxi service provider. Commenting on the partnership Nimish Trivedi, co-founder and CEO, Prakriti E-Mobility said, “This partnership with Tata Power is extremely important as it will help us tide over one of the major roadblocks towards adoption of electric vehicles in India – the lack of sound charging infrastructure. We believe that this partnership will not only help in strengthening our plan of rolling out 5000 electric cabs within the next 2 years but also give a huge boost to the overall EV environment in India."

According to Praveer Sinha CEO and MD, Tata Power, “EV charging is the future to ensure a cleaner tomorrow and we are happy to see that partners like Prakriti E-Mobility team share our vision.” Tata Power CFO and president, new businesses- Ramesh Subramanyam added that “We believe EV fleets have a huge role to play in providing greener, cleaner and healthier mobility solutions for our cities. Such partnerships would be key in our journey to be a one-stop integrated charging service provider to all forms of transport and all categories of user.”
