A Bengaluru-based tech-logistics company LetsTransport has teamed up with the integrated charging infrastructure company EVRE to provide parking and charging infrastructure for its fleet of 1,000 EVs. As part of the partnership, EVRE will set up 1,000 EV charging stations across India within 6 months.
EVRE will provide the space for parking and charging the EV fleet in 12 cities. The phase-wise implementation will include EVRE setting up 200 charging stations in Bengaluru, 200 in Delhi-NCR and the rest in Chennai, Pune and Hyderabad, among other cities by the end of 2022.
These charging stations will be used by LetsTransport and other EV fleet owners. LetsTransport has an active fleet of 1,00, 000 vehicles and is moving towards a 100 per cent EV fleet, as per the official statement. This partnership is a testament to the fact that efficient and contiguous EV charging infrastructure is the key to operating an EV fleet, wherein the operators of the EV fleet can focus on managing their core operations.
EVRE will design, manufacture and execute the operation and maintenance of the EV charging infrastructure and technology for all chargers, existing and upcoming, owned and operated by EVRE. LetsTransport will help in demand assessment of where EVRE should set up charging stations for higher utilisation due to its integrated approach to demand aggregation, supply optimisation, connecting with charging infrastructure and financing.
The ease of sustaining a large EV fleet is what EVRE brings to the table. With over 650 public EV charging stations across the country in the hub model, we are in a position to help EV fleet owners exploit the best potential of their fleet and contribute to the holistic drive to reduce the carbon footprint of mobility. In order to support each other by increasing the footprint and utilisation of hubs across the country, EVRE co-founder Chandresh Sethia said that they are happy to partner with a player like LetsTransport.
