The charging facility can be availed on a subscription-based model.

As per a press release, an in-house survey of 500 passenger autos and cargo three-wheelers suggests that eight out of every ten drivers of EV vehicles in Bengaluru do not have even a basic charging Infrastructure at home.

As per recently revealed data, the conventional model of an engine of an auto-rickshaw in Bengaluru plies up to 150 km daily.

On the contrary, an EV auto driver can drive up to only 100 km in a day due to the non-availability of charging Infrastructure while the vehicle is on the move.

With an increase in charging points, an extended range of distance covered in a day can increase the EV driver’s income by 40%-50%.

Dheeraj Reddy, who is the COO and also the co-founder of Charzer opines that for any logistic company finding park and charge EV hubs is an uphill task as there is extensive labor and workforce involved.

Setting up of charging hubs is a major diversification from the core business of a logistics company, and besides, a lot of time is involved in traveling to and fro to the hubs on a daily basis.

This is where a company like Charzer comes in. Fleet owners don’t only save up to 46% of their expenses but can also scale the fleet ten times faster with Charzer involved.

Uday Narang, who is the Founder and Chairman of Omega Seiki Mobility, confirms that they have taken a target of introducing more than 30000 EV cargo three-wheelers in the next couple of years,
