Kazam’s software to manage fuelling for EVs is used by a range of vehicles including 2W, CEV 3W, city buses for local transport, and more. With more than 7000 charging points under management, Kazam’s immediate plan is to integrate 60,000 charging and swapping stations with its operating system in the next 14-15 months.

In India, Kazam enables 60+ Charge Point Operators inclusive of large e-commerce companies, 2W OEMs and, Third-party Logistics companies.
The global EV charging infrastructure market is only expected to grow exponentially from $7.7 billion in 2020 to $27.7 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 29.4%, as per the press release.
