the world’s first on-demand, doorstep, fast Electric Vehicle charging service,
after a successful pilot run in parts of Gurugram in the state of Haryana in
north India, has launched its services across Gurugram and plans to deploy
Hopcharge across all major metropolitans in the coming months.
is the brand name trademarked by EVQ Technologies Private Limited. EVQ Technologies Pvt Ltd also has strategic
entity in Japan and USA.
startup is addressing the challenges of unavailability of charging facilities,
slow charging at home and productive time being consumed to charge vehicles, by
deploying it’s unique made-in-India, patented, rapid charging technology that
enables modular and mobile charging infrastructure that augments local grid,
minimises expensive grid upgrade and saves productive time for EV owners.
in 2019, Hopcharge is a Gurugram-based startup that allows introducing a
charging system consisting of connected and portable power banks with high
power charging capabilities specifically designed for EVs. The startup offers a
virtual energy cloud for EV owners which synchronises with the grid to balance
the supply and demand of energy in a time and space distributed manner. The
users can avail of the service through the Android/iOS app supported by a
technology-enabled back-end energy management system to execute the end-to-end
process and supports all the EV models globally.
on the launch, Arjun Singh, Co-Founder and CEO at Hopcharge, stated, ”We have
created Hopcharge as a plug and play fast-charging network that is available
any day anytime anywhere in the city. Since it's a charging station coming to
the EV users instead of the other way around, it frees up the Ev user while we
charge the EV, plus it saves them the hassle of sanctioning load, installing,
and maintaining it. Early response from EV owners has been overwhelming, and
more and more people are requesting us to expand and provide our services in
their respective cities across the world. With our made in India technology, we
aim to make Hopcharge the game-changer and become the enabler technology for EV
adoption in the world.”
in the US, challenges related to charging infrastructure will potentially slow
down the adoption of EVs if not addressed properly. A large percentage of US
households in cities lack access to home charging. For these households to rely
only on public charging will be expensive and inconvenient, resulting in a
significant loss of productive time,” said Mario Holdsworth, former founder of
Evercharge USA and who has been board advisor in the Hopcharge since inception.
from challenges identified in mature markets like the USA are well implemented
by Hopcharge. Mario said post the successful pilot of Hopcharge, there is a
solution for the challenges faced in faster adoption of EV and soon plans to
roll out a global pilot would be in place.
