PUNE, 21 September 2022: EKA Mobility is a division of Pinnacle Industries Limited and a maker of electric vehicles and technologies signs MoU with goEgoNetwork, a company that provides public transportation users with robust, efficient, compliant, and well-connected EV charging infrastructure and charging stations.
Official provider of electric charging solutions
As per the mutual agreement, goEgoNetwork will now be the official electric charging solution provider for EKA’s 9-meter buses, to set up ARAI & OCPP certified stations of 30kW, 60kW, and 120kW for the institutional customers across the country.
EKA’s 9-meter electric bus provides a solid platform for sustainable and efficient public transport in cities around the world, along with reliable and profitable operations for customers.
The electric bus, completely designed & manufactured in India, recently received the Central Motor Vehicle Rules (CMVR) certification from ARAI, and the first batch will be soon deployed on roads.
With a capacity to seat 31 passengers and a driver, along with a standing capacity, EKA’s electric bus offers a 200-kilometer range on a single charge.
Dr. Sudhir Mehta, Chairman of EKA and Pinnacle Industries Limited, spoke about the partnership and emphasised, “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,” Mehta added.
Rishi Bagla, Director of goEgoNetwork, commented on the collaboration “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 EKA Mobility’s customers a seamless charging ecosystem for their e-buses across India,” Bagla said.
