Omega Seiki Mobility has partnered with Bengaluru-based EV charging infrastructure start-up, Charzer, to set up a network of 20,000 EV charging stations across India in the next two years.
The partnership aims to address the problem of lack of charging infrastructure faced by auto drivers all over the country. A survey conducted by Charzer also highlighted this issue concerning electric 3-wheeler operators in Bengaluru. In association with Omega Seiki, Charzer will instal over 20000 EV chargers across the country, and especially where the EV manufacturer’s clients operate. Charzer will also provide a mobile application for the drivers to locate the nearest charging station and book a slot. Drivers can use the facility in a subscription-based model.
Currently, Charzer is working with Greendrive logistics, which operates a fleet of 100+ Omega Seiki vehicles in Bangalore and supports last-mile logistics for companies like Amazon, Bigbasket and Porter.
Uday Narang, Founder and Chairman, Omega Seiki Mobility, said, “At Omega Seiki Mobility, we are dedicated to creating an ecosystem that reduces carbon footprint by shifting to sustainable last-mile logistics. We have a target of introducing 30,000+ EV cargo three wheels in the next two years. In order to achieve this goal, we are also working towards building a robust charging infrastructure that allows our fleet drivers to easily access charging stations at any given point during the day. As a first step towards this, we have partnered with Charzer to build an extensive network of charging stations across the country. We are looking forward to working with the team for setting up the required infrastructure and remove any hurdles in the way of faster adoption of EVs.”
Hari Krishna, MD, Greendrive logistics, mentioned, “Our fleet is completely dependent on Charzer’s charging stations. Our operational efficiency has doubled and adding new vehicles to the fleet has become very easy.” (MT)
