ibis, a smart economy hospitality brand owned by Accor Hotels and InterGlobe Enterprises, has partnered with Magenta to install electric vehicle charging stations (EVCS) at their recently opened hotel ibis Vikhroli. The new hotel is located on Lal Bahadur Shastri Marg, a strategically significant corporate area in Mumbai, and represents the ‘Aamchi Mumbai’ culture for the new-age tourist. With the growing popularity of electric vehicles in the country, such an endeavour will help drive the expansion of the EV industry while also decreasing carbon emissions. Magenta will first construct, operate, and manage DC fast chargers at ibis Vikhroli and then additional hotels around India.
These charging solutions are mobile-enabled (OCCP-based) and include many other user-friendly features. EV drivers can utilise the ChargeGrid system to access these chargers. From purchasing a charger to completing an online charging session, the ChargeGrid app gives seamless information.
All charging channels that will be used as part of this cooperation will be managed and administered by Charge Grid’s Magenta software, which will allow EV customers to follow the depletion of their wallet value while charging.
