They have entered the Indian EV scene and are primed to setup a manufacturing facility and a distribution network.
- Setup EO Chargers with Indian conditions
- Test the EO Chargers with Indian EV's
- Test the chargers against electric cars, electric two wheelers
- Discuss about manufacturing partners
- Start setting up distribution network
- Take some videos, publish to the world about EO India
Some of the above mentioned tasks are still going on. We still will be working with EO UK in the coming months, while the EO India team is being created.
These chargers support overCurrent protection, earth leakage protection and are EU CE Certified for compliance. These smart chargers are the safest way to charge your EV.
Also the EOGenius charger supports software based remote monitoring with EOCloud and EOApp.
You can connect 1 EOHub device with upto 30 EOGenius chargers. This makes adding intelligence to chargers very easy. All chargers can be remotely monitored and controlled. Also owners of the charging stations can login to the website and can set how they will get paid. If they want to offer free charging or if they want to set a fixed rate for an interval.
The EO chargers have awesome build quality and the blue, green LED's look really good. We tested them against few electric cars for short top-ups, overnight charging and the charger just works.
There are tons of software features like monitoring power loads, setting up schedules etc.
There are some challenges too. The EO uses Stripe payment gateway and the EOApp for authentication and making payments.
In India, not everyone has a credit card, maybe EO will need to consider integrations with PayTM or other digital wallets to make things simpler.
Do read about the variants of EO chargers in the Smart Charger EVSE section of our website. The company is working out pricing and other details in the coming weeks. We will be releasing videos of these chargers, in our YouTube channel, in a staggered manner. We will also be doing in-depth reviews, testing them against varied EV's and will be documenting the features of these chargers.
So lots of more to come from PluginIndia and the EO team!
Let the Indian smart and safe charging journey begin!
