Vida, powered by Hero, the emerging mobility brand of Hero MotoCorp, has initiated operations of its public charging infrastructure in Bengaluru, Delhi and Jaipur. The brand has set up nearly 300 charging points at 50 locations across the three cities for public use.
The charging network is spread across key locations, ensuring customer convenience. Vida’s fast charging network allows users to charge their scooter’s battery at 1.2 kms/min. Each charging station will have DC and AC charging sockets.
Dr. Swadesh Srivastava, Head – Emerging Mobility Business Unit (EMBU), Hero MotoCorp, said: “We have installed VIDA’s world-class EV charging infrastructure prior to the commencement of VIDA V1 deliveries in all three cities. In line with our brand promise of building a “Worry-free EV ecosystem”, we are ensuring that customers’ transition to EVs is smooth and hassle-free. The VIDA World is developed with sustainability at its heart and with a technology-first philosophy. We are confident that our customers’ experience of the Vida ecosystem, including the product, services and charging infra will be of global standards. We are now planning to expand our ecosystem to other cities.”
Customers can use the ‘My VIDA’ mobile App for the end-to-end charging journey. They will be able to locate their nearest charging station, view its availability, reserve a charging slot and navigate to the station from the App. The entire payment process will also be managed through the App.
Vida has set up Experience Centers in Bengaluru and Jaipur, and pop-up stores in Delhi-NCR, where customers can test-ride the Vida V1.
