Comments from SemaConnect Leadership
Mahi Reddy – CEO
After over a decade watching and taking part in the development of the Electric Vehicle market and the supporting charging infrastructure industry in North America, we are very excited and pleased to announce the launch of our EV charging solutions in India.
India has played a very important role in the development of SemaConnect Inc. From the very beginning, we have based our IT development, R&D and manufacturing in India. Given this large base of knowledge, we feel that it rightly positioned us to help in the advancement and growth of the EV industry and the associated EV infrastructure in India. It poised us at the start of a very important decade in the development of a new paradigm for Indian transportation. As more of the country urbanizes, it is critical that the Indian transportation segment modernizes and grows to be completely sustainable. The coming advancements in battery technology and lowering of battery costs will go a long way in making EV adoption a reality across all segments of public transportation in India.
Our extensive experience in deploying EV charging solutions in North America coupled with our Indian pedigree, positions us to provide unique Indian solutions to the country. While we are launching with our range of 4 wheeler L2 charging solutions – we have big plans to build our solutions to cater to unique Indian motifs, including cost-effective solutions to address the increasing penetration of EVs in the 2 and 3 wheeler segments.
SemaConnect Charging Infrastructure Private Limited has been setup as a subsidiary in India, to ensure that we build the right teams and structures to allow us to “Go to Market” effectively in India – allowing us to build unique products, services and solutions to cater to the unique demands of the Indian marketplace.
Mark Pastrone – COO
SemaConnect is extremely pleased and excited to bring our products, services and solutions to the Indian market.
Our decade long experience in developing, producing, selling, installing and managing EV charging stations across North America gives us a strong foundation to bring to India.
Our smart EV charging solutions have been thoroughly tested across a wide range of driver applications, property types and environmental conditions that stand us in good stead in serving the range of applications and conditions in India.
Over the years, SemaConnect has been fortunate in building great customer relationships and partnerships with multinational corporations and global real estate firms that we are proud to extend to the Indian marketplace. These relationships reach across a variety of sectors including the multifamily residential, workplace, retail and fleet segments.
We believe our product stack, including the power controls, extensive software application functionality, network coverage and top of the line product design will be the perfect solution for discerning customers in India. All this complemented by our years of experience in deploying and managing these solutions of course!
