Hero Electric’s customers can now charge their vehicles on ElectricPe’s charging network
Hero Electric, India’s leading electric two-wheeler maker, has announced a partnership with ElectricPe.
- This partnership will allow Hero Electric’s customers to access ElectricPe’s charging network.
- ElectricPe aims to install 1,00,000 chargers across India by the end of 2022.
AdvertisementHero Electric, the largest electric two-wheeler company in India, has announced a partnership with ElectricPe, an electric vehicle (EV) charging platform, allowing its customers to access ElectricPe’s charging network across India.
The announcement is a big win for ElectricPe, too, since it has plans to expand its charging network to over 1,00,000 access points by the end of 2022.
On the other hand, Hero Electric customers will be able to access ElectricPe’s charging network across residential complexes, offices, malls, and other establishments, which should help in addressing range anxiety issues.
Gearing up for ever-increasing competition
The partnership is crucial for Hero Electric, which is currently India’s largest electric two-wheeler (2W) company – every third electric 2W sold in India is a Hero Electric product. But with rising competition, the company has seen its market share decline in the past year.
The Indian electric 2W market is growing rapidly, with sales surging multi-fold – by over five times – in 2021-22.
However, with the electric vehicles industry still in its early days, there is a lot of scope for growth.
“This association will provide a seamless charging and EV riding experience to customers by easing the accessibility through ElectricPe’s charging points that are getting installed on a large scale across the country,” said
“In line with this, we are thrilled to partner with the biggest players in India – it validates the trust we bring to the market. The association with Hero Electric will further our goal to bring clean and affordable access to charging to a billion Indians, right at their doorstep,” said
