Magenta, the fastest growing Indian Charge Point Operator (CPO) company, has collaborated with Central Railways and inaugurated the public electric vehicle (EV) charging station along with the Parel Railway Station in Mumbai.

While inaugurating the charging station, Subhash Desai, Minister of Industry and Mining, said, “we are glad to see Magenta with Central Railways pushing green initiatives and setting up EV charging stations addressing the lack of the charging infrastructure for EVs to operate smoothly. This initiative will bring relief to people who can charge their EVs at key locations near Railway stations as well.”

Over the next two weeks, the company would also set up EV charging stations along with the Dadar and Byculla Railway stations.

The company said that the first of its kind public charging station will be functional 24*7 initially with unique Made in India Streetlamp Integrated EV Charging Stations (ChargeGrid FLARE) and subsequently with DC fast chargers.

This combination of AC and DC chargers will support 2-wheelers, 3-wheelers and 4-wheelers. These chargers can be operated through the ChargeGrid App with online remote monitoring which includes an automated payment gateway, thereby eliminating the need of having a station marshal to monitor, maintain and operate chargers at the location.

Commenting on the development, Maxson Lewis, MD and Co-founder of Magenta Group said, “Installing EV chargers at Mumbai Railway Stations is a dream come true for me at a personal level. The adoption of electric vehicles cannot be said to have taken off, if the common man’s concern of EV charging is not addressed; and what better than making EV charging available at the most synonymous locations for Mumbai’s common man – railway stations.”

An investor in the company, Dr. Kiran C Patel said, “I’m proud to be associated with the Magenta family, to make my vision of an EV ready India possible. This initiative of Street lamp-based EV charging station at a railway station is unique, since it’s Made in India and Made for India.”

As of now, the company has installed 4,500 electric vehicle chargers across 108 cities in India.
