As Mentioned during the Press Conference by Mr. Ravi Bora, “one of the biggest challenges for faster adoption of electric vehicle is the lack of charging infrastructure, range anxiety and the idea of getting stranded on the road while driving an electric vehicle is one thing that bothers every EV drivers.”
EVs require a dedicated charger for users to charge and for people to be comfortable with the idea of switching to electric vehicle they need to be sure that there are enough chargers in their city & they will never have to push their vehicle home.
For these users the first problem is not how fast they can charge but the first problem is where they can charge in case of an emergency. Whether they go to their office or to a mall or for a movie or simply a picnic with their family they don’t want their day to be spoiled by their vehicle running out of charge and we at EV booth are on a mission to make sure that none of our customer ever has to face these problems.
“Our AC all in one smart charges are perfect solution to deploy, for both private or public use. Whether you are an EV driver, living in an Apartment, looking for a charging solution or a builder looking to comply with New EV norms, or simply to provide more facility to your residents, or a business, café restaurant looking to cater to new clientele, or a Hotels/Guest houses/Resorts to provide EV solution for your guests who are staying overnight at these facilities, our cost effective Smart All in one, AC001 Chargers are the best solution. Cost of one of these charges starts from as low as Rs 4999/- and the cost involved for host is very low as they do not need to invest on upgrading their existing Infrastructure, thus does giving them a very good ROI.”
In the short span of 4 months we were able to cover 80 plus location in Guwahati and 100 plus across Assam. EV booth is proud to announce that we were the first to partner with GMDA to install chargers in 7 of their premium parking and have presence in locations like Novotel Guwahati, Hotel Palacio, Central Mall, Shristrinagar -North east India’s first integrated township, and many boutique hotels like Zen Garden, Hotel Parnil, Hotel SunView and cafes like Hideout Café, Kaffine Klub to just name a few. We plan to install 400 plus chargers in Guwahati alone and over 2000 plus chargers in northeast by the end of this financial year . In phase one we are creating a robust network of AC chargers across Guwahati and starting September we will start installing 7.2kW DC fast chargers.
