Going forward, the integration would result in a robust network of approximately 500 charging points accessible nationwide to all EV customers through the Fich app
Electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure platform Charge+Zone and Evnnovator, a comprehensive EV charging aggregator, have joined forces with Mercedes-Benz to offer an integrated charging solution in India.
Mercedes-Benz's existing charging network has been seamlessly integrated with over 150 DC fast charging stations and more than 100 type 2 chargers already in operation on Evnnovator's eMSP platform. As a result of this partnership, a robust network of approximately 500 charging points will be accessible nationwide to all EV customers through the Fich App.
Mercedes-Benz is known for having the largest luxury-OEM-backed charging infrastructure in India. According to Santosh Iyer, Managing Director and CEO of Mercedes-Benz India, they have onboarded the charging infrastructure of their franchise partners across India on the Fich application. This application provides seamless access to their pan-India fast charging solutions, which are now open to all EV users.
Evnnovator's eMSP (e-mobility service provider) platform includes the Fich EV charging app. This app enables users to easily locate, access, and pay for charging services from multiple charge point operators (CPOs), including Charge+Zone, through a single platform.
According to Rai Nitin Chitransh, the Founder of Evnnovator, their platform simplifies the process and ensures a convenient and efficient experience for customers, whether they are looking for charging points from various CPOs or navigating the complexities of the EV charging landscape.
Charge+Zone operates its cloud-based charging management software, Charge Cloud, which integrates high-speed EV chargers from the Mercedes-Benz franchise network and establishes seamless connectivity with Evnnovator's eMSP platform.
Kartikey Hariyani, the CEO of Charge+Zone, believes that this collaboration has laid the foundation for an advanced and sustainable EV charging ecosystem in India.
