Ather partners with Statiq to expand their Ather Grid and provide better charging network… Special emphasis in on NCR region…
So, Ather Energy have partnered with charging-network startup, Statiq, in order to facilitate ‘Every user in the EV ecosystem to travel stress-free and stay charged’.
Gurgaon based Statiq is a tech-first startup founded in 2019 by Mr. Akshit Bansal and Mr. Raghav Arora. According to the founders, Statiq is taking on the challenge of ‘building one of the largest public EV charging stations network in the country’. Their aim is to provide end-to-end service for EV charging solutions for land-owners, EV users and vehicle manufacturers.
Sharing his views, Mr. Nilay Chandra (VP-Charging Infrastructure and Marketing, Ather Energy) says –
“Ather Energy fully recognises the necessity of an accessible charging network, along with advanced riding solutions, to facilitate EV adoption. The partnership with Statiq, will allow us to extend our fast charging network, the Ather Grid, and address charging concerns that persists within existing EV owners while also reassuring consumers looking to make the switch. Ather Energy is looking at rampant geographical expansion and strategic alliances such as these will aid in collectively building a favourable ecosystem to support the growing demand in the country”.
Under the terms of the partnership, Ather and Statiq will share EV charging locations in the North Region of India. As the first steps of the partnership, both companies will ramp up the installation of EV charging infrastructure across the entire North India, with special emphasis put on the NCR region.
Speaking on the partnership, Mr. Raghav Arora (Co-founder of Statiq) says –
“The brand name of EV maker Ather Energy has become synonymous with electric 2-wheelers in the country and we, at Statiq, are proud to collaborate with them to boost our combined charging network across India and enhance the EV ecosystem. This way, we can ensure that users in the EV ecosystem can always #StayCharged.”
Statiq have been making big strides in order to expand their charging network especially in the Northern region of India. Last month, they announced their partnership with state-owned refining and marketing company – Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited – where they are going to add more than 200 charging stations in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Uttarakhand.
Additionally, Statiq shared that they have installed more than 600 charging stations throughout, with recent installations at Mangaluru (Karnataka), Himachal Pradesh and Rajasthan. By the end of this year, Statiq is aiming to achieve a 10,000-station strong charging network in our country.
