In a press statement, the firm stated that it has set up 128 public fast charging points across 18 cities in the country as part of the network, which can be used by all electric two-wheelers and electric four-wheelers. And that this facility is being offered free of charge to everyone till September this year.

The charging network is supported by Grid app, which allows all EV owners to locate and check the availability of the nearest charging stations in real-time. Delhi-based Park+ which collaborated on the project – offers a smart parking solution that allows users to locate parking, book slots and pay digitally.

The company has already installed 20 chargers across cities and will expand this number to 30 by April. By bolstering the charging infrastructure set-up in a faster, more hassle-free way, it is looking forward to the accelerated adoption of EVs in the country, said Amit Lakhotia, Founder Park+.

Ather Energy in its accelerated expansion phase targets to set up 5-6 points before delivery across the 27 markets that it will be present in by the third quarter of 2021.

Ather Grid has seen steady adoption across all the cities we have begun deliveries in and we believe that accessible charging infrastructure is critical before launching our products in any market we enter.

“We have already signed up with multiple partners and will continue to do so in the months to come. Park+ has also been instrumental in finding us locations in Mumbai and increasing our reach,” said Ravneet Phokela, Chief Business Officer, Ather Energy.
