Hero Electric collaborated with Bolt to set up 50000 EV charging stations in the country within a year. Under this collaboration, Bolt chargers will be installed in more than 750 Hero Electric’s touchpoints across the country. This will further benefit over 4.5 lakh customers. Besides this, around 2000 electric riders will be able to avail themselves free of cost Bolt charging units set up at their homes.
“We are delighted to partner with BOLT as its charging network will offer affordable charging solutions further, encouraging the switch to electric vehicles. A robust charging network has aided the growth of EVs by curbing range anxiety among riders. Our mission is to enable carbon-free mobility and fasten EV adoption in the country by building a strong charging ecosystem and reskilling mechanics to offer an enhanced EV riding experience. We are positive that this collaboration will broaden our efforts to reach the set objective. This partnership will benefit the industry overall and allow e2W riders easy access to charging stations pan India,” as commented by Sohinder Gill, CEO, Hero Electric.
This partnership is also going to help both brands to achieve their shared goal of providing a robust, affordable, and accessible EV charging infrastructure. This will further encourage the adoption of electric vehicles in the country. Bolt will be integrated within the Hero Electric App and website, offering a one-stop solution for locating a charging station, booking a slot, and payment. Once the installation of Bolt charging stations has been done, individuals can choose between private/public mode of operation for their charging stations and decide the price depending on existing commercial/EV tariffs. Besides these, subscription-based plans will be announced for Hero Electric riders to ease their usage.
