Renewable energy solutions provider Magenta Power has announced India’s first EV charging Corridor- ChargeIn at Mumbai-Pune Expressway​.

This network of EV charging stations of Magenta Power will initially be deployed at Hotel Center Point, Mumbai-Pune Expressway, Lonavala.

ChargeIn will be a fully integrated network of charging points including AC and DC chargers. All the ChargeIn points will be connected via network for central monitoring and control.

Initially some of the charging station will have a fully automated payment system so that users can charge the vehicles using an online OTP based payment system via the ChargeIn app. This payment system will be deployed to all the charging stations in a phased manner.

ChargeIn will be an open platform for all EV charging stations; existing owners of charging stations will have the option to join the ChargeIn network and support this growing community.

Commenting on the development, Magenta Power, CEO and MD, Maxson Lewis said, ChargeIn plans to encompass charging stations for 2 wheelers, 3 wheelers, 4 wheelers and bus fleets. He believes that while this network of charging stations will open up the ‘electric highways’ in India, it will also provide a unique employment opportunity for charging station owners who can man and support the stations.

Meanwhile, the company said it is in talks with potential investors to support their growth plans as it is setting up the network in the asset intensive business.
