TVS Motor Company recently announced a strategic partnership with Convergence Energy Services (CESL). Why? Well, because this MoU deal will allow the homegrown two-wheeler brand, along with CESL, to jointly develop a public charging ecosystem for its all-electric offering in the country. We’re referring to the iQube Electric, of course. Given the nature of the deal, it only seems appropriate that both companies inked the deal on World Environment Day (June 5th).

Manu Saxena, Vice President, Future Mobility & Dealer Transformation, TVS Motor Company, stated, “CESL is a significant initiative of the Government of India to make public charging infrastructure available to the citizens of India. On World Environment Day, TVS Motor takes pride in being the first 2-Wheeler manufacturer to have a MOU with CESL. We will continue to contribute to India’s electric adoption, staying true to our brand purpose, TVS iQube Charge. Life. This year TVS iQube Electric will be available in over 20 cities in India. In addition to its home charging options, it will be the TVS dealership charging network, and the emerging Public Charging ecosystem, with strong players like CESL that will accelerate India’s EV journey.”

This, by the way, is the first time any two-wheeler manufacturer has partnered with CESL, which is a 100 percent owned subsidiary of EESL. Furthermore, the press release from TVS Motor Company states this agreement falls in with its commitment of expanding the presence of TVS iQube Electric in over 20 cities by the end of FY 2021-22. Naturally, CESL will help strengthen the charging infrastructure in these cities for the customers of the electric scooter. In case you’re wondering, the iQube is only available in Bengaluru and Delhi, currently.
