Founded in May 2021 by Avinash Sharma and Raghav Rohila, ElectricPe offers a B2C EV charging and demand generation app. It promises to be a one-stop platform where EV users can quickly identify, access, and pay for EV charging points.


"Our belief has always been in stage-by-stage capitalisation as we ramp up our operations and create a holistic full-stack consumer-facing platform,said Avinash Sharma, Co-Founder & CEO, ElectricPe.

"Having a trusted dense network of charging/swapping points to find, use and pay will not only help increase adoption, but also utilisation of charging infrastructure."
