Log9 & Tork Motors Partner for EV Charging Infrastructure

Log9 and Tork Motors have partnered to promote interoperable EV charging infrastructure in the country under the Bharat Charge Alliance (BCA) initiative. Both Log9 and Tork Motors are members of BCA.

Log9 has launched Type 6-Bharat LEV fast charging across its new 2W/3W battery platforms. Type 6 will be the low-voltage rapid charge standard in the future generation, with several OEMs adopting it.

Tork Motors and Log9 have agreed to allow consumers of both brands to use their chargers and charging network, which is based on BCA’s LEV DC interoperable standard (IS 17017-25 & IS 17017-2-6, which will be released by BIS in 2021). The collaboration also indicates that all technological updates, including but not limited to connectors, protocols, and payment gateways, will be jointly agreed upon and implemented by both organizations to ensure long-term interoperability.

Both firms will collaborate to promote BCA’s interoperable LEV DC charging infrastructure and allow their respective customers to charge on each other’s public charging network. Other OEM customers implementing IS 17017-2-6 and IS 17017-25 standards will also be able to charge their vehicles via their integrated network.

Kartik Hajela, COO-Log9 said, “Govt. push around standardised low voltage, fast charging platform was always missing as CCS was high voltage. So, a low voltage fast charging platform needed to be standardised and Log9 being at the forefront of fast charging in last mile commercial EV platforms has been a big advocate for such fast charge protocols interoperable between OEMs in this category as it holds enormous scale potential.”

Kartik Hajela added, “Bharat LEV or type 6 technology introduced by the government will help in standardising fast charging across platforms and Log9 has developed grounds-up charging control systems to adopt this technology across its platforms.”

Kapil Shelke, Founder & CEO – Tork Motors said, “This partnership is yet another step towards promotion of interoperability among OEMs and ancillary companies in the Indian EV market. We have always advocated the importance of interoperability through the Bharat Charge Alliance initiative and are working towards establishing a comprehensive charging infrastructure that transcends manufacturers and benefits EV users across the country.”
