Further to the association, Midgard Electric will be the EV charging partner at all the company-owned outlets of Automovill. Currently, the auto service startup operates 70 co-owned workshops-Hubs, and over 500 partnered-spokes pan India.

Midgard Electric provides EV Charging stations, EV Ecosystem Consultation, EVCS Maintenance and Monitoring, Battery Swap Charging Station and Fleet charging Management services.

This collaboration brings together the Electric Vehicle Charging Infra Service firm, which connects people to their destinations safer, greener, and smarter through their EV charging network and Automovill’s new-generation car service chain concept in major Indian cities.

Automovill has been on an expansion spree and is simultaneously strengthening its industry associations. It has widened its footprint across 20 cities in 14 states.

In phase one with Midgard, Automovill targets to add roughly 500 charging stations through its current service centres in Bangalore, Hyderabad, NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata, Jaipur, Ranchi, Patna, Lucknow, and Guwahati, serving the rising demand. The charging infrastructure will be equipped with Level 1 charging stations that meet Bharat AC 001 and DC 001 requirements, making them ideal for charging electric two-wheelers, three-wheelers, and four-wheelers.

“We understand that e Mobility is the future, and given the fact that we aim at meeting all the rising demands in the auto service industry, it is the need of the hour to become EV supportive gradually. The association with Midgard is one of the crucial steps in sync with our vision. Simultaneously, we will be able to play a bigger role in adding to the establishment of wider charging infrastructure in the country,” said Mr. Ramana Sambu (Co-Founder & CBO) Automovill.

“Midgard Electric is very much delighted to have our association with Automovill, and we believe that the automotive industry is getting a phase shift towards electric mobility, and the ecosystem needs to be strengthened with adequate charging infrastructure for the entire value chain. We are seeing an exponential increase in the electric vehicle demand in the coming years and are creating EV charging infrastructure at a larger scale in the country to accommodate the electric vehicles through our strategic association,” said Mr. Sabari V, CEO & Director of Midgard Electric

The brand is digitizing and innovating to offer a better experience to its users. Anyone with an electric car may use the Automovill smartphone app to locate these charging stations and utilize them for charging, depending on the type of connector they have. Automovill charging stations can meet both Level 1 and Level 2 charging in most cases. They will roll out these charging stations across the Automovill network in India in Phase 1 and subsequently to many gated communities, parking stations, malls, and other locations in Phase 2.
