Altigreen Propulsion Labs Pvt. Ltd has tied up with Massive Mobility to install 25,000 on-demand electric vehicle charging stations across India in the next two years.  

‘On-demand’ charging generally means that an EV driver or owner can book a specific charger beforehand for a specific duration, and can pay through one of many online payment channels.

Amitabh Saran, CEO, Altigreen, said, "Aligning our goals with Massive Mobility, which is developing an electric mobility ecosystem in Indian metros with an initial focus on the commercial sector, will help us to boost EV adoption across the country.”  

As per a June 2021 report by Grant Thornton-Bharat and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (Ficci), India would need four lakh public charging stations to cater to an estimated total of two million EVs plying on the roads by 2026.
