LEV AC chargers supplied by Magenta to the Vasant Kunj residential community were recently opened by the honorable transport minister Shri Kailash Gahlot, in keeping with the trend for home electric vehicle (EV) charging, which contributes to 70-80 percent of worldwide charging demands.

The charger was developed and installed as part of the state government’s initiative, which allows private EV chargers to be built for a net cost of around Rs. 2,375 after incentives.

In addition, additional charges have been installed in Vivek Vihar, Munirka, Dwarka, Jamia Nagar, and Rohini, among other locations in Delhi. By the end of April 2022, Magenta hopes to have installed over 100 chargers as part of the program.

The scheme’s incentive to build these EV chargers can help both commercial and residential companies. To improve the EV infrastructure in Delhi, the business plans to install 10,000 of these chargers.

The Magenta charger features an OLED display and an easy-to-use Bluetooth-based authentication mechanism. It’s a smart solution that all EV drivers can control via the ChargeGrid BT mobile app.

It’s a great low-cost Bluetooth-based solution for EV owners of all types who need to charge their vehicles on a regular basis. With several precautions against electronics short circuits, over-current, over-voltage, and ground fault, this charger was developed with the ‘Safety First’ idea in mind.

The low-cost AC charger also boasts a number of unique features, including an auto charging session resume in the event of a power outage. These chargers are also incredibly ‘Easy to Install’ and take up very little room due to their ability to be mounted on the wall or placed on a stand. Three Delhi DISCOMs have given Magenta a three-year contract to build an EV charging station network across the capital.

Magenta has also installed Portable EV Charging Stations, India’s first EV Charging Corridor for the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, and the ChargeGrid App (the app also available on the App Store), a mobile-based, integrated and automated network of all charging stations.
