Hero Electric has partnered with ElectricPe, an EV charging network, to install charging stations for its customers across India to address this demand. Hero Electric riders will be able to use ElectricPe's charging network as part of the partnership. The business recently committed to installing 1,00,000 charging points by the end of the year.
