TVS Automobile Solutions subsidiary, Ki Mobility Solutions has announced the launch of a comprehensive digital mobility service platform for electric vehicles (EV). Commemorating its entry into the EV segment, the company has partnered with eight EV manufacturing start-ups and leading original equipment manufacturers (OEM), comprising companies like Okinawa and Boom Motors.

The set of services include providing charging station facilities for these companies at over 2,500 garages associated with myTVS. Ki Mobility is India's first full-stack O-to-O (online to offline) digital platform that operates myTVS brand. The move will help electric vehicle manufacturers to jump-start their operations across the country. The alliance will consist of companies in the two-wheelers, three-wheelers, LCVs, and passenger cars space.

The digital platform from Ki Mobility Solutions will provide the manufacturers with a wide service network across 250-plus towns for sales, service, insurance, roadside assistance, charging stations, and parts.

"Launch of digital mobility platform for EV is a milestone moment in the automotive aftermarket industry. The platform provides an opportunity to discover new business models that have been traditionally defined as the dealership and the independent aftermarket. This platform provides a portfolio of solutions that would help Electric vehicle manufacturers provide complete customer-centricity that they desire to provide for their customers," said G Srinivasa Raghavan, Managing Director, Ki Mobility Solutions.

He added that Ki Mobility's cloud-based service network would support the accelerated roll-out plans along with service promises to the electric vehicle manufacturers that would help them drive the competitive advantage.

"We are not going to invest in charging stations, instead we will provide them with both physical and technological infrastructure. We are targeting a market share of around 30 percent in the EV market," Raghavan stated.

As technicians servicing EVs must be trained in different battery operations technology and different power transmission concepts, Ki Mobility Solutions has already capitalized in training around 500 technicians across the country to service all types of electric vehicles ensuring the highest quality standards.
