Hero Electric and Charzer to set up 1 lakh Electric Stations Across India

Hero Electric and Bengaluru-based startup Charzer will collaborate to launch 1.00 lakh electric charging stations over the next 3 years.

Indias largest and oldest electric two-wheeler company Hero Electric has joined hands with Bengaluru-based start-up, Charzer to install as many electric charging stations. As part of this joint venture, 30,000 charging stations will be installed in 30 cities in the first fiscal year. Then eventually, over a period of three years, this number will increase to 100,000 stations pan-India. Charzer will also provide a mobile application and a website for EV owners to locate the nearest charging stations for feasibility.

Hero Electric has been pretty relevant in the EV category with several offerings. They already have four electric scooters currently in production. This includes the Photon, Nyx, Flash, and Atria. In the coming years, Hero Electric will launch five more electric scooters. So, it is quite evident that a good EV charging station infrastructure is required for the success of these upcoming electric scooters.
