To enable this initiative, the carmaker will collaborate with Electreefi, which is the winner of the MG Developer Program and Grant 2.0, Exicom, Echargebays, Resident Welfare Associations (RWA), and other new partners. With this, MG aims to enable societies to become ready for the future of mobility and go green. It will encourage the transition towards electric vehicles by providing the convenience of fast charging infrastructure.

By partnering with RWAs, MG will provide them with an end-to-end guidance, coordination, and support for the installation process. This will also help the RWAs save cost and bolster the community charger infrastructure. “MG is constantly working towards its mission of enhancing the EV ecosystem in India. With this initiative, we will now have a 6-way charging solution for our customers and provide increased assurance and confidence," said Rajeev Chaba, President and Managing Director, MG Motor India.

MG Motor India has been taking several steps towards green mobility and strengthening the EV charging infrastructure in the country. It recently partnered with Fortum and Tata Power to introduce superfast EV charging stations. The MG ZS EV comes with a free-of-cost AC fast-charger that is installed at the customer’s home or office, a plug-and-charge cable onboard, and charge-on-the-go with Roadside Assistance (RSA).
