Statiq, an electric vehicle (EV) charging network, has partnered with Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL), a state-owned refining and marketing corporation, to boost the number of public Statiq chargers in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and Uttarakhand to over 200.
As per the company’s statement, 10,000 of these chargers will be installed by the end of the year. All of these units will be made up of different combinations of 3.3 or 7.7 kW Statiq chargers. The company will work with all EV models and ensure that four-wheeled electric vehicles may be fully charged in as few as 2-3 hours. Furthermore, HPCL has several petrol stations in Uttarakhand, Bihar, and Uttar Pradesh, and by using this established network, Statiq will be able to expand its reach into areas where their presence will be greatly appreciated.
In January 2022, Statiq installed a full-stack charging station at Mangalore’s Forum Fiza Mall where 2-, 3-, and 4-wheelers may be charged. The charging station has two charging units, each of which is a 10.7 kW Type 2 + Smart Plug, Pillar 2.1, made in-house. Statiq just launched another 4-wheeler charger on the NH58 near Rani Bagh Resort in Beawar, Rajasthan, expanding Statiq’s EV coverage from Delhi to Udaipur and Jodhpur. Another station will be built near Suket Café on the NH21 in Pungh, Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, to provide EV connectivity to commuters travelling from Delhi to Manali and back.
