Adani TotalEnergies E-Mobility Limited (ATEL) has revealed plans to establish EV charging infrastructure in collaboration with all-electric cab aggregator Prakriti E-Mobility (Evera).
The partnership will involve integrating a super hub containing 200 EV charging points in Delhi, with intentions to expand this strategic alliance across India to drive the adoption of decarbonized mobility.
ATEL, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Adani Total Gas Limited, a joint venture between Adani Group and TotalEnergies, is creating an extensive EV charging ecosystem catering to both individual and business customers.
The collaboration with Evera comes at a time of surging demand for electric vehicles, though the availability of charging infrastructure remains limited. This initiative aims to contribute to India’s 2030 decarbonization goals, leveraging the increasing interest in electric vehicles within the cab-hailing sector.
ATEL and Evera aspire to address existing gaps in the country’s EV infrastructure, focusing on key locations such as highways and workplaces, and offering convenient and rapid AC and DC charging solutions.
Suresh P Manglani, CEO of ATGL, expressed enthusiasm about the upcoming hub’s strategic proximity to the Delhi International Airport, highlighting the potential to provide environmentally friendly transportation options. The initiative is set to encompass approximately 200 EV charging points, offering a combination of AC and DC chargers.
The model, initially implemented in New Delhi, is anticipated to be replicated nationwide and will allow other aggregators and individual EV owners to utilize the large-sized EV charging station in Samalkha, further enhancing the EV ecosystem.
Nimish Trivedi, Co-Founder & CEO of Evera, emphasized that the collaboration will enhance the user experience for Evera cab drivers and electric vehicle owners, alleviating concerns about extended travel distances. The initiative aims to create a robust and sustainable mobility infrastructure that promotes electric vehicle adoption among various stakeholders.
While specific details regarding the number of planned EV charging stations were not disclosed, the upcoming charging station in the capital is expected to play a significant role in encouraging widespread electric vehicle adoption.
