Adani TotalEnergies E-Mobility Limited (ATEL) has announced a partnership with the all-electric cab aggregator Prakriti E-Mobility (Evera) to establish electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure. The collaboration will focus on creating a centralized hub of 200 EV charging points in Delhi, with plans to expand across India to promote eco-friendly mobility and meet the country’s decarbonization goals by 2030.
ATEL, a subsidiary of Adani Total Gas Limited formed through a joint venture between Adani Group and TotalEnergies, aims to build an extensive network of charging points to serve both individual customers and businesses. The collaboration with Evera is strategically timed as the demand for EVs grows, yet adequate charging infrastructure remains limited.
The partnership’s primary objective is to contribute to India’s push for cleaner transportation by enhancing the accessibility of EV charging stations. They plan to target major highways, workplaces, and convenient locations, providing efficient AC and DC charging solutions. The upcoming hub, situated close to Delhi International Airport, will host approximately 200 charging points, combining both AC and DC chargers.
Suresh P Manglani, CEO of ATGL, expressed enthusiasm for the project and highlighted its strategic location near the airport, emphasizing its potential to support Evera in offering green transportation options to customers. The charging station in Samalkha is expected to be accessible to various EV aggregators and individual owners, fostering cross-utilization and improving the EV ecosystem. A revenue-sharing model will govern the infrastructure, leveraging the expertise of both ATEL and Evera.
Nimish Trivedi, Co-Founder & CEO of Evera, highlighted the collaboration’s role in alleviating travel concerns for Evera cab drivers and EV owners, thus promoting broader EV adoption. The joint venture aspires to create a robust and sustainable mobility infrastructure that encourages electric vehicle usage across various sectors. However, specific details about the total number of planned EV charging stations were not disclosed in the statement.
