The company aims to set up 10,000 stations with Massive Mobility and extra 10,000 on its own by next year end.

“Announcements by the government of India over the last few months have helped propel the EV industry onto the next level. We continue to expand our reach, setting up charging points and reskilling mechanics to create an ecosystem,” Hero Electric CEO, Sohinder Gill, said in a statement.

Low cost stations

The company has been investing in plotting low-cost charging stations over the last few years to foster growth of charging infrastructure, he added.

“Till date, we have set up close to 1,650 charging stations and aim to setup 20,000 by the end of 2022,” he said.

The association with Massive Mobility will broaden the company’s efforts to reach its objective and the partnership would benefit the overall industry, Gill said.
