Adani TotalEnergies E-Mobility Limited (ATEL) will set up a robust EV charging infrastructure with Prakriti E-Mobility (Evera), an all-electric cab aggregator. The collaboration will integrate 200 EV charging points super hubs in Delhi. This strategic partnership will be scaled up pan-India to encourage decarbonised mobility. 

The partnership comes at a time of rising EV demand, though charging infrastructure still remains scant. It aims to catalyse India’s 2030 decarbonisation target, supported by a rising inclination towards electric vehicles in the cab-hailing segment. 

Through these concerted efforts, ATEL and Evera hope to bridge the existing EV infrastructural gaps in India, targeting key highways, workplaces, and other locations with convenient and fast-charging AC and DC solutions. 

“We are excited to join hands with Prakriti E-Mobility Limited (Evera) in developing this prestigious project in the Delhi-NCR region, further strengthening our long-term strategic partnership. We are already engaged with Evera to operate its cluster hub at Okhla, Delhi. The upcoming hub is strategically located in close proximity to the Delhi International Airport and will support Evera in providing green rides to customers. The hub will include commissioning of approximately 200 EV charging points, which will be a combination of AC and DC chargers,” said Suresh P. Manglani, CEO and executive director of ATEL.

The large EV charging station at Samalkha will allow use by other aggregators and individual EV owners to increase cross-utilisation and improve the EV ecosystem in New Delhi. This model will then be replicated pan-India. 

Adani TotalEnergies E-Mobility Limited (ATEL) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Adani Total Gas Limited. ATEL is engaged as a charge point operator in India, endeavouring to set up an EV charging ecosystem with a wide range of charging points catering to B2C and B2B customers. 

The business operates specifically on e-mobility infrastructure for two, three and four-wheelers, is committed to the country's sustainability goals, contributes to a greener economy, and acts as a stepping stone in decarbonising vehicular emissions.

ATEL and Evera will enable this infrastructure on a revenue-sharing model that becomes strategically resourceful by championing the partners’ expertise.

Commenting on the collaboration, Nimish Trivedi, co-founder and CEO of Evera, said, “This association will foster a user-friendly experience for Evera cab drivers as well as all-electric vehicle owners by eliminating anxiety to travel farther distances. We are developing this with the aim to realise a sustainable mobility infrastructure that is green, climate-conscious, and sustainable. We could not be more excited to combine forces with ATEL to propel India’s EV infrastructure that drives electric vehicle adoption among individuals, businesses, and cab aggregators.”

Evera is an all-electric cab service provider in Delhi-NCR, offering airport transfer, intercity rentals, and corporate transportation services. Currently, its e-taxi service operates in Delhi-NCR with the aim of reducing the human carbon footprint while enhancing customer experience, one ride at a time. 

Founded in 2019, Evera focuses on B2B and B2C segments and has clocked 12 million green kilometres across Delhi-NCR. Accelerating the ecosystem for sustainable cab-hailing transportation, Evera recently secured its pre-Series A funding round at $7 million.
