Statiq aims to set up an EV charging network for about 10,000 people by the end of the year. Hero Electric is also committed to contributing to the development of the EV ecosystem in the country.
The hero is electric and Statiq, an EV charging network, are working together to strengthen mobility and charging for EV users in the north. As part of the partnership, Hero Electric will help decide where the next set of EV chargers should be launched based on inquiries, requirements and consumer inquiries. These inputs will be transferred to Statiq to work on expanding the charging network in the appropriate locations.
Because the input will come from direct consumer inquiries, both partners will be able to provide immediate solutions to customers ’pain points when charging EV. Through this partnership, Statiq also seeks to strengthen its presence in the country, as well as contribute to the EV ecosystem and offer EV owners stress-free travel. “We are proud to be working with Hero Electric to profoundly improve the EV ecosystem. In this way, we can ensure that users in the EV ecosystem are always charged, ”said Raghav Arora, co-founder and CTO of Statiq.
