Vakrangee has 3,504 Nextgen Vakrangee Kendra outlets spread across 19 states, with 68 per cent outlets in Tier 5 and Tier 6 cities. Vakrangee plans to increase the number of Nextgen Vakrangee Kendra outlets to 75,000 by FY2021-22 and 3,00,000 outlets by FY2024-25.
“Vakrangee plans to leverage this deep presence by being an enabler for the EV charging facility through its network of retail outlets called as Vakrangee kendras. We continue to focus on expanding the bouquet of services available at our Nextgen Vakrangee Kendras,” the company said in a statement.
Why make a choice?
The company added that for all operators who want to set up electric vehicle services in India, it will make sense for them to leverage Vakrangee’s charging infrastructure rather than building one of their own.
According to Mint, executive chairman Dinesh Nandwana, the electric vehicle space is a huge growth opportunity for the coming years and the company wants to be future-ready by developing a pan-India footprint of EV charging infrastructure.
He further said that Vakrangee would be an enabler by providing the distribution platform for the EV charging facility through their partnership with the EV service providers.
