to achieve India’s aspirational net-zero emissions goal. Our collaboration with goEgoNetwork,
one of India’s leading charging infrastructure providers, ensures a fast-charging network for
institutional customers of our 9-meter e-buses across the nation. We look forward to bringing
sustainable, profitable, and efficient EV solutions to accelerate the mass adoption of new-energy
vehicles in India, and we are elated to have joined hands with goEgoNetwork to ensure the fast
charging of our 9-meter e-buses. We firmly believe that building a more accessible electric vehicle
charging infrastructure will drive the rapid transformation of electrifying public transportation in
our country and achieve net-zero emissions goals.”
Speaking on the partnership, Mr. Rishi Bagla, Director, goEgoNetwork, said, “It excites us a lot
at goEgoNetwork about our recent partnership with EKA Mobility. While our passenger EV
charging network has been growing quickly with our presence in housing societies, public car
parks, educational institutes, charging parks, hospitals, and many more, our recent tie-up with
EKA Mobility is a testimony to the fact that our charging solutions are universal and can be used
by all types and sizes of EVs currently available in the market. As omnipresent and compliant
