The initiative is aimed at eliminating range anxiety among travelers, especially on popular destinations. As a seven-year strong EV user, Panag said, “We hope that destination charging and our e-trails give us uninhibited access to destinations beyond the fossil fuel network." He added, "We are building and empowering a warm community of planet conscious adventurers to create some happy memories."
Charging infrastructure is a crucial part of the electric mobility revolution in the country. Not just Radisson but various OEMs, malls, residential societies and workplaces are also giving importance to the need of having charging facilities in their premises in order to encourage customers to use electric vehicles more often, and without the anxiety of range depleting.
