EKA Mobility partners with goEgoNetwork to set up EV charging infrastructure.
goEgoNetwork will set up ARAI & OCPP-certified charging stations of 30kW, 60kW, and 120kW for the EKA Mobility E9 electric bus.
Electric bus manufacturer EKA Mobility has partnered with charging infrastructure provider goEgoNetwork to set up EV charging infrastructure and advanced charging stations for its customers for public transportation.
Both companies signed the Memorandum of Understanding. As per the MoU, goEgoNetwork will set up ARAI & OCPP certified charging stations of 30kW, 60kW, and 120kW for EKA’s 9-meter electric buses.
The MoU was signed between EKA Mobility and goEgoNetwork in the presence of Dr. Sudhir Mehta, Chairman of EKA Mobility & Pinnacle Industries Limited, Mr. Hirdesh Thakur, Executive Director of EKA Mobility, and Mr. Rishi Bagla, Director, goEgoNetwork, Mr. Sayantan Chakraborti, Mr. Pravin Kumar, and Mr. Dheeman Kadam, Co-Founders at goEgoNetwork.
Speaking on the collaboration, Dr. Sudhir Mehta, Chairman of EKA & Pinnacle Industries Limited, said, “With EKA, we’ve been striving to set up a robust, efficient & reliable EV ecosystem to achieve India’s aspirational net-zero emissions goal. Our collaboration with goEgoNetwork, one of India’s leading charging infrastructure providers, ensures a fast-charging network for institutional customers of our 9-meter e-buses across the nation. We look forward to bringing sustainable, profitable, and efficient EV solutions to accelerate the mass adoption of new-energy vehicles in India, and we are elated to have joined hands with goEgoNetwork to ensure the fast charging of our 9-meter e-buses. We firmly believe that building a more accessible electric vehicle charging infrastructure will drive the rapid transformation of electrifying public transportation in our country and achieve net-zero emissions goals.”
Mr. Rishi Bagla, Director, goEgoNetwork, said, “It excites us a lot at goEgoNetwork about our recent partnership with EKA Mobility. While our passenger EV charging network has been growing quickly with our presence in housing societies, public car parks, educational institutes, charging parks, hospitals, and many more, our recent tie-up with EKA Mobility is a testimony to the fact that our charging solutions are universal and can be used by all types and sizes of EVs currently available in the market. As omnipresent and compliant charging ecosystems lack across the country, our partnership with EKA Mobility will guarantee customers a seamless charging ecosystem for their e-buses across India.”
The EKA E9 electric bus has a seating capacity of 31 passengers and also accommodates a wheelchair with a foldable ramp. It has a range of 200km and can be used for multiple applications, such as city buses, staff carriers, and school buses.
The bus recently received the Central Motor Vehicle Rules (CMVR) certification from ARAI, and the first batch will be soon deployed on the roads.
