With over 150 charging points, the EV charging hub is synced with the Magenta ChargeGrid smart app (available on IOS and android), enabling EV owners to check the real-time availability of EV charging stations and book slots & fleet operators to pay for EV charging points online.

The Magenta EV Charging Hubs will cater to the charging and maintenance of vehicles and come with a control panel for the fleet operators to manage and supervise the state of charging, charging schedule, and vehicle service schedule. The EV Charging Hubs have been developed while focusing on the ease of use for fleet drivers and operators: on-the-go charging on a 24X7 basis, overnight secure parking, maintenance and servicing of the vehicles while vehicles are being charged, and rest areas for the drivers. Additionally, the hubs are geared with an energy backup system in case of a power outage and ensure full charging for these fleets. These charging hubs are enabled with EV chargers which are developed in house in line with Indian usage conditions.

Mr. Maxson Lewis, Founder and Managing Director, Magenta said, “e-Commerce companies are driving the commitment for electric vehicles in the last mile delivery space. EV Charging Hubs plays a key role in the success of fleet business and operational efficiency. Our charging hubs at Bengaluru are planned in a 3 km radius around the e-commerce hubs and warehouses stretching to the outskirts of the city all the way to Bengaluru Electronic city. The idea is to create the charging infrastructure in areas with the highest density of last-mile distribution hubs and enable seamless operations. These charging hubs have been developed with the EV fleet drivers in mind.”

Magenta ChargeGrid plans to install 9 more EV charging hubs in Bengaluru by the end of the year. The firm has partnered with several logistics and e-commerce companies like Amazon India, Porter, Udaan, BigBasket, JumboTail etc., for 3rd Party Last Mile Logistics services.
