FAE Bikes is a prominent electric scooter startup in India. The startup was founded by IITians and NITians who have raised investments from esteemed investors in India, Europe, and the USA.

During his presentation the founder of the startup Sameer Ranjan Jaiswal said, “We have been in the EV domain and realised that EVs cannot become mainstream until charging infrastructure is present. There is an urgent need for millions of charging stations in India. We want to do our part in growing the ecosystem and plan to install 1 lakh charging stations in 2020. In the pilot stage, we have received orders for 470 charging stations. We have also partnered with EV Manufacturers Hero Electric and Jitendra EV Tech and will provide free subscription for their users in Charzer app for 60 days."

He also said, “Charging stations are the petrol pumps of the future and we want the common man to benefit from it instead of the select few. Real scale and adoption can only happen if the general public gets involved in setting up the charging infrastructure. We have designed Kirana Charzer keeping these issues in mind."

Other Co-Founder Dheeraj Reddy informed that the installations will begin from March and they are installing the first Kirana Charzer in Electronic City Bangalore.
