Magenta Power launches new AC charger series for EVs


Recently, the power ministry issued guidelines for charging infrastructure. Under the guidelines, based on the occupancy pattern and the total parking provisions in the premises of the various building types, charging infrastructures shall be provided only for electric vehicles, which is  20% of all ‘vehicle holding capacity’ at the premise. The ChargeGrid Pro Community AC charger is aligned to the new guidelines, bringing simple solution to the EV charging problems.

The ChargeGrid Pro series comes integrated with wireless monitoring and data logging, all enabled via ChargeGrid’s online and mobile platform.  With no dedicated manpower required for operations or collections, one parking lot can serve multiple users.

ChargeGrid Pro Community AC charger, made specifically for residential societies, is the first product to be launched under the ChargeGrid Pro series. The ChargeGrid AC charger is light-weight and compact with maximum efficiency and superior power density.

With the concept of “Made in India. Made for India,” the ChargeGrid Pro series is said to be one-fourth the price of similar products available internationally. The process of installation is so simplified that it can be installed anywhere, be it co-operative societies, bungalows or office buildings.

Speaking on the launch, Maxson Lewis, Director-Magenta Power said, “We, at Magenta believe that EV adoption should follow a systematic and structured solution approach with a ‘Made for India’ philosophy. Trying to directly copy the international EV infrastructure models will not work. We are guiding many OEMs and townships in setting up the right infrastructure to make EV adoption easier and faster. There are multiple solutions that we are bringing to the market.”

ChargeGrid is priced at Rs 19,750.
