India-based full-stack mobility startup, Automovill has announced its partnership with Midgard Electric to establish Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations in India.
Through this collaboration, Midgard Electric EV charging infra service will be used across 500+ Automovill touchpoints in the country.
Currently, the auto service startup operates 70 co-owned workshops- Hubs, and 500+ partnered – spokes pan India.
Midgard Electric provides services like EV Charging stations, EV Ecosystem Consultation, EVCS Maintenance, and Monitoring, Battery Swap Charging Station, and Fleet charging Management.
“This collaboration brings together the Electric Vehicle Charging Infra Service firm, which connects people to their destinations in a safer, greener, and smarter way through their EV charging network, and Automovill’s new generation car service chain concept in major Indian cities,” the statement said.
Automovill has been on an expansion spree and is simultaneously strengthening its industry associations too. While on one end it has widened its footprint across 20 cities in 14 states
In phase one with Midgard, Automovill targets to add roughly 500 charging stations through its current service centers in Bangalore, Hyderabad, NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata, Jaipur, Ranchi, Patna, Lucknow, and Guwahati, serving the rising demand.
The charging infrastructure will be equipped with Level 1 charging stations that meet Bharat AC 001 and DC 001 requirements, making them ideal for charging electric two-wheelers, three-wheelers, and four-wheelers.
Speaking on the partnership, Ramana Sambu (Co-Founder & CBO) of Automovill said, “We understand that e Mobility is the future, and given the fact that we aim at meeting all the rising demands in the auto service industry it is the need of the hour to gradually become EV supportive. The association with Midgard is one of the very crucial steps and in sync with our vision. Simultaneously, we will be able to play a bigger role in adding to the establishment of wider charging infrastructure in the country.”
“Midgard Electric is very much delighted to have our association with Automovill and we believe that the automotive industry is getting a phase shift towards electric mobility and the ecosystem needs to be strengthened with adequate charging infrastructure for the entire value chain. We are seeing an exponential increase in the electric vehicle demand in the coming years and are creating EV charging infrastructure at a larger scale in the country to accommodate the electric vehicles through our strategic association,” Sabari V, CEO & Director of Midgard Electric added.
The brand is digitizing and innovating to offer a better experience to its users. Anyone with an electric car may use the Automovill smartphone app to locate these charging stations and utilize them for charging depending on the type of connector they have.
In most cases, Automovill charging stations can meet both Level 1 and Level 2 charging. They will roll out these charging stations across the Automovill network in India in Phase 1 and subsequently to many gated communities, parking stations, malls, and other locations in Phase 2.
