Electric vehicle charging infrastructure company Relux Electric has successfully raised Rs 250 crore from a consortium of private real estate and infrastructure investors. This capital infusion, carried out on a revenue-sharing basis and without equity dilution, marks a pivotal moment for Relux as it embarks on an ambitious plan to expand its fee network across the region.

Founded in 2009, Relux Electric has outlined its plans to use the newly raised funds to build 20 state-of-the-art hyper-charging stations along key highways in southern India over the next eight months. Dr. Highlighting the company’s commitment, Karthikeyan Santharam, Managing Director and CEO of Relux said, “Relux has identified land on busy highways such as NH 44, NH 45 and NH 556. The company will procure the land and set up charging stations, each occupying an area of ​​1 to 1 .5 acre.’

These upcoming charging stations are expected to serve a diverse range of vehicles, with each station able to accommodate up to 10 small to medium-sized cars, 10 high-end cars, two buses and a truck at the same time, as detailed by Dr. Santharam. Charging times will be optimized for different vehicle types, with tricycles being able to recharge in 10 minutes and quad bikes requiring 18 minutes to fully charge.

In addition, Relux Electric is expanding its focus by venturing into charging solutions for fleet operators and commercial EV owners. Dr. Clarifying the expansion, Santharam said, “Relux will soon launch a business unit to set up charging stations for fleet operators and electric utility vehicle (EV) owners.
