EV Charging Simplified With Autocharge
Electric vehicles (EVs) are revolutionizing how we travel by offering a greener and more sustainable mode of transportation. As the popularity of EVs continues to rise, the need for reliable and convenient charging infrastructure becomes paramount. EV charging stations play a vital role in supporting the growth and adoption of electric vehicles by providing a network of charging points for EV owners.
At Statiq, we are committed to providing our customers with the best charging experience possible. We have installed thousands of EV chargers nationwide to offer a seamless EV charging experience. With more than 1200 public EV charging stations, we are one of India’s fastest-growing EV charging companies.
Thousands of EV owners are using the Statiq mobile application to charge their electric vehicles. The Statiq EV charging app allows you to discover EV charging stations near you, book your charging session, and pay conveniently through your Statiq wallet.
What is Autocharge?
Generally, when you reach the charging station, you have to connect the charging connector to the electric vehicle to start charging by selecting units and clicking the “Start Charge” button. This process can take a few minutes. That is why Statiq is introducing the “Autocharge”, a feature that can save you time on selecting and starting EV charging sessions from the mobile app.
With Autocharge, Statiq has taken charging convenience to a whole new level. Gone are the days of fumbling with cards or tapping on screens to initiate a charging session. With Autocharge, just plug in your compatible CCS charger and the magic begins. Seamlessly and effortlessly, your EV communicates a unique identification number (UIN) with the Statiq charger, initiating the charging process instantly.
The moment you plug in, your EV will be recognized by Statiq’s advanced network infrastructure, seamlessly associating your vehicle with your account. There is no need for manual intervention or complicated setup procedures. Autocharge handles everything behind the scenes, simplifying the charging process like never before.
Imagine the convenience of arriving at a Statiq EV charging station knowing that charging your electric vehicle is as easy as plugging it in. No more searching for cards or fiddling with payment methods. With Autocharge, Statiq has eliminated these unnecessary steps, allowing you to focus on what truly matters – getting charged up and back on the road.
