BYD, a Chinese electric vehicle four-wheeler maker, has partnered with three Indian EV charging solution companies. The company hopes to improve customer convenience and experience when recharging electric vehicles across the country by doing so. ChargeZone, Volttic, and Indipro are among its new charging partners.
BYD e6 electric is only sold to B2B customers for commercial fleets, but with this partnership, BYD e6 commercial vehicle customers will have easy access to charging stations across the country.
BYD India customers will get access to ChargeZone's public charging network, which includes 650+ EV charging stations in 25+ cities. Volttic EV has around 300 charging stations, while IndiPro will offer charging through an unspecified number of charging networks.
Speaking on the occasion, Sanjay Gopalakrishnan, Sr Vice President - Electric Passenger Vehicle Business - BYD India, said, "It is matter of great pride for us at BYD to partner with these charging network players and be a part of the Electric Revolution. By enabling easy and convenient charging stations across major cities and highways, we will be supporting our customers in a smooth and happy electric driving experience."
He further added, "We will keep expanding the charging networks together with our partners. This is a key step towards strengthening our EV journey in the country. Chargezone, Volltic and Indipro are key players in electric vehicle charging infrastructure in India. As we step towards a cleaner and greener environment with our All-New e6, we will continue to be at the forefront of accelerating the spread of clean energy."
The e6 electric MPV from BYD starts at Rs 29.15 lakh ex-showroom in India. The MPV is powered by a 71.7 kWh Blade Battery and has a WLTC range of 520 kilometres. The e6 MPV offers a safe and convenient driving experience by enabling AC and DC fast charging, which can charge from 30% to 80% in 35 minutes.
In cities such as Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Vijayawada, Ahmedabad, Kochi, Chennai, and others, BYD has a well-established network.
So that was all about BYD's latest partnership with three Indian companies to improve EV charging facilities for its customers.
