The fast charging network can be used by all electric two-wheelers and four-wheeler for free of charge till the end of the year, the company said in a media release.
Ravneet Phokela, Chief Business Officer said,“Ather Grid has seen steady adoption in Bengaluru and we believe that accessible charging infrastructure is critical before launching our products in any market we enter. We have already signed up with multiple partners and will add 50 charging points by the end of the year.”
He further added,”We are working on setting-up the charging network and our experience centre – Ather Space – in time for the launch of the Ather 450 in the coming weeks.”
The charging network is supported by the Ather Grid app which allows all EV owners to locate and check the availability of the nearest charging stations in real-time. The company in its accelerated expansion phase targets to set-up 6500 charging points across the country by 2022.
The company has partnered with hosts including cafés, restaurants, tech parks, malls and gyms to reduce range anxiety and ease the adoption of electric vehicles in Chennai. The company continues to partner with more hosts which can offer EV owners easy accessibility and fit into their lifestyle.
