Statiq, the electric vehicle charging network has opened its first charging station at Nexus Amritsar Mall. Recently, Statiq and Nexus Malls signed an agreement to install 17 EV charging stations across 13 cities in India.
Two fast EV DC Chargers (60 KW) are provided at the charging station to charge all types of electric cars available in Indian markets. In just 40 minutes, the vehicles can be charged up to 80%. The duo’s roadmap will set up a combination of slow and fast chargers throughout the Nexus Mall range to allow customers to quickly charge their electric two, three, as well as four-wheelers.
Akshit Bansal, Co-Founder, and CEO, Statiq said, “With the installation of this charging station, needless to say, it would make life much easier for countless EV users in the city making their daily commute hassle-free and comfortable. At the same time, it would also give confidence to non-EV owners helping them in their decision to pivot to electric vehicles from predominantly petrol and diesel-powered vehicles. For a highly polluted city such as Amritsar which is often ranked among one of the most polluted cities in Punjab, this is a huge stride in terms of also addressing pollution.”
Mandeep Singh, Center Director, Nexus Amritsar said, “With this partnership with Statiq, the country’s largest EV charging brand, we wish to not only improve the mall-going experience of our EV-driving patrons but also contribute to the emerging smart city vision of the authorities in general. The provision for cleaner and greener mobility is a part of that futuristic perspective and we are glad that by teaming with Statiq, we are playing our part.”
Statiq hopes to have a charging network of 20,000 by the end of the current year. According to Statiq, each location was hand-picked because it is close to busy routes that receive high footfalls.
