Glida and Statiq Collaborate to Enhance EV Charging Services in India

With Statiq mobile app, EV users can locate and book EV chargers and even make remote payment for charging usage

One of the country’s leading charging point operators, GLIDA (previously known as Fortum Charge and Drive India), has collaborated with Statiq, a renowned provider of smart public charging solutions. The aim of this partnership is to improve the convenience and accessibility of EV charging across India.

Through the Statiq App, EV users will be able to access GLIDA’s extensive network of 850+ charging points. Additionally, the app will cover not just GLIDA’s current charging stations but those planned for the future. It means that users won’t have to use multiple apps for charging and connectivity.

With Statiq’s mobile app, EV users can locate and book EV chargers. Also, the app makes it easy for remote payment for charging usage. Statiq offers solutions for EV charging at home, in public spaces, and in commercial settings.

The collaboration will allow EV users to access a broader network seamlessly and eliminate the need for multiple apps for charging and connectivity. However, users will still be able to access GLIDA Chargers through both the GLIDA App and Charge-Thru (a web link solution designed to be compatible with any app for the convenience of EV users).

Addressing the announcement, Awadhesh Kumar Jha, Executive Director of GLIDA, stated “This move allows us to leverage our expertise in green mobility solutions to build a robust & sustainable EV charging infrastructure aligned with the evolving customer needs. Together, we are paving the way for a cleaner and greener future, and thus making it ‘All Lights Green’ for our end users.”

This collaboration will reshape the EV charging infrastructure throughout India. It will offer improved convenience and accessibility to Passenger Electric Vehicle (PEV) users nationwide.

Raghav Arora, Co-founder & CTO of Statiq, commented “This partnership is a pivotal step in our mission to create an extensive and user-friendly EV charging ecosystem in the country. By integrating GLIDA’s chargers into the Statiq app, we are enhancing convenience and affability for EV users. This partnership underscores our shared commitment to innovation, sustainability, and customer-centric solutions. By combining our strengths, we aim to create a seamless charging experience for EV owners and play a pivotal role in shaping India’s sustainable transportation ecosystem.”

Statiq is aiming to partner with more companies that operate charging stations. The goal is to provide access to EV users in the country with reliable charging facilities.
