In an industry-shaping development, MG Motor India has today
announced its partnership with eChargeBays, a Delhi-based start-up, to assist its
customers with last-mile assistance in setting up infrastructure at their home for
charging their EV.
As part of the partnership, MG will send experts to identify the best way in which MG
ZS EV buyers can install an EV charger at home. The move comes ahead of the MG
ZS EV launch in December 2019.
Speaking on the collaboration, Rajeev Chaba, President & Managing Director,
MG Motor India, said, "The government's recent announcement around creating
charging amenities for customers at public places is a positive step for the EV
industry. Our latest association is aimed at supporting the government's EV vision by
providing a viable residential EV charging infrastructure. It also highlights MG's
commitment towards going the extra mile and delivering a convenient ownership
experience for its EV customers. This partnership is yet another step towards driving
EV adoption in the country."
MG's partnership with eChargeBays is the latest in a series of alliances with EV
charging players aimed at creating a robust charging infrastructure in the country. As
part of its commitment to creating an ecosystem for EVs and drive EV adoption in
India, the company has already partnered with Fortum and Delta Electronics India for
the fast charging and slow charging segments, respectively.
Speaking on the association, Rajesh Singh, Founder & CEO, eChargeBays, said,
"Most prospective EV buyers are hesitant on account of the limited charging
infrastructure available. We aim to provide Indian car owners with a robust and safe
one-stop solution for their home charging-related needs using our homeCharge
solution. Apart from this, eChargeBays will also launch a series of service solutions
in the charging infra space which would aim at providing a seamless EV charging
experience to EV customers."
MG's efforts to create the right ecosystem for EVs are part of its long-term
commitment to bring environment friendly mobility solutions in the country and are
aligned with the government's vision to encourage EV adoption in India to bring
about a material improvement in air quality.
The MG ZS EV is a global product that combines MG's experience in EV
manufacturing with best-in-class technology and design. MG ZS has already
received exceptional response in international markets, having secured 2,000 orders
within two months of its UK launch.
