In a step to deliver convenient ownership of Electric Vehicles, MG Motor India has partnered with eChargeBays to set up home charging infrastructure for EV owners. MG had earlier partnered with Fortum and Delta Electronics India for charging segments.
The partnership comes ahead of the company’s launch of the its electric SUV, MG ZS EV, in December 2019.
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 company said in a statement.
Commenting on the collaboration, MG Motor India President & Managing Director Rajeev Chaba said, “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 customers, he added.
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.
The company has already partnered with Fortum and Delta Electronics India for the fast and slow charging segments, respectively.
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 related needs using our homeCharge solution,” he added.
Apart from this, eChargeBays will also launch a series of service solutions in the charging infra space which would aim at providing a seamless charging experience to customers, Singh said.
The MG ZS EV is a global product and has already received 2,000 orders within two months of its UK launch, the company said.
