MG Motor has entered into a partnership with Delhi-based startup eChargeBays
to assist its customers in setting up the infrastructure at their homes for charging electric vehicles.

Rajeev Chaba, president and managing director, MG Motor India, said, “The government’s recent announcement around creating charging amenities for customers at public places is a positive step for the EV industry. Our latest association is aimed at supporting the government’s EV vision by providing a viable residential EV charging infrastructure.”

MG ZS EV in December

MG Motors is launching the MG ZS EV in December of this year. The company claims it will send experts to find out the best way buyers of this car can install EV charger in their homes. MG Motors has recently collaborated with Fortum and Delta Electronics India for fast charging and slow charging categories.

Private charging at homes and offices

This move comes after Ministry of Power has revised guidelines for EV charging that will allow private charging at homes and offices.

The guidelines say, “Setting up of public charging stations shall be a licensed activity and any individual or entity is free to set up public charging stations provided the stations meet technical, safety as well as performance standards and protocols as laid down by the ministry and Central Electricity Authority.”

Rajesh Singh, founder and  CEO, eChargeBays, said, “Most prospective EV buyers are hesitant on account of the limited charging infrastructure available. We aim to provide Indian car owners with a robust and safe one-stop solution for their home charging-related needs using our homeCharge solution. Apart from this, eChargeBays will also launch a series of service solutions in the charging infra space which would aim at providing a seamless EV charging experience to EV customers.”
