Hero MotoCorp (NS: HROM ), the world's largest manufacturer of motorcycles and scooters, has entered a groundbreaking partnership with Ather Energy, a leading electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer in India. This collaboration aims to establish an interoperable fast-charging network, a significant development in the EV industry. The partnership will allow EV users to seamlessly access both VIDA and Ather Grids across the country, covering 100 cities with over 1900 fast-charging points.

The interoperable network is based on the recently approved Light Electric Combined Charging System (LECCS) standard, marking India's first indigenously developed AC and DC Combined Charging connector standard for light electric vehicles. This combined network is set to become the largest EV charging ecosystem in the country. Importantly, it represents the world's first-ever interoperable fast-charging network for EV two-wheelers, showcasing India's leadership in sustainable mobility.

The interoperable fast-charging network is expected to play a pivotal role in accelerating EV adoption by strengthening the overall segment and promoting a convenient ownership experience. Users will be able to locate and navigate to charging stations through the "My VIDA" and Ather App, ensuring compatibility, availability, and a seamless charging experience. This initiative aligns with India's growing focus on sustainable and accessible EV solutions, fostering a paradigm shift in the country's mobility landscape.

Dr. Swadesh Srivastava, Chief Business Officer at Hero MotoCorp, expressed excitement about extending their association with Ather Energy and highlighted the significance of the interoperable network. He emphasized that VIDA's brand promise of building a "Worry-free EV ecosystem" would be realized through this extensive and fastest-growing charging network, ensuring a seamless and convenient ownership experience for current and future EV customers. This collaboration sets a global benchmark in the two-wheeler EV space, reinforcing India's commitment to sustainable mobility solutions
