Electric two-wheeler maker Hero Electric has partnered with automotive aftermarket multi-sided platform SpareIt to train private garage owners and use their network as EV service hubs.
Set up in 2020, SpareIt — which enables small and independent garages with easy access to spare sourcing, business management tools and upskilling programmes to make them EV ready — currently has over 100 EV trained garages with charging points in their network across Bangalore.
As per a statement released by the company, SpareIt will offer these garages as private garage owners (PGO) for Hero Electric’s B2B and B2C clients while the SpareIt locate app will integrate fleets and customers for garage discovery and service calls.

“This partnership further brings us closer to our commitment of training 20,000 PGOs and also reflects the growth of the electric vehicle segment, fastening the green mobility shift. We look forward to this next phase of electric mobility where our PGOs drive this green revolution,” said Sohinder Gill, CEO at Hero Electric.
So far, Hero has trained over 6,000 such PGOs and is now committed to train over 20,000 such owners in the next two years, it said.
“Our platform digitises the offline neighbourhood garages by empowering them with easy access to sourcing, last-mile logistics, business management solutions and digital credit,” said Prashant Kamdar, Founder & Director, SpareIt.
This partnership allows us to create a convenient and efficient ecosystem to service our customers and further the growth of the EV segment, he emphasised.
