MG Motor India has forged a partnership with TES-AMM to build a robust EV infrastructure to facilitate India’s transition to green mobility.
MG Motor’s association with the global e-waste recycling and end-to-end service provider will ensure environmentally-sustainable and secure recycling of MG ZS EV batteries, thus ensuring greater peace of mind to the ZS EV owners about their ecological footprint.
According to Rajeev Chaba, President and Managing Director, MG Motor India, “At MG, we are on a mission to develop a comprehensive EV ecosystem that supports India’s drive towards its greener and cleaner future.”
He added: “We strongly believe that battery management is a critical area that needs focus. Our partnership with TES-AMM builds along these lines and ensures that batteries not only re-enter the value chain, but are also recycled while following the most eco-friendly protocols. We believe it will go a long way in India’s sustainable e-mobility future.”
TES-AMM has Asia’s only Li-ion battery recycling plant and is one of the few companies certified in multiple management systems including 18001:2007/R2 (Responsible Recycling) alongside others.
It utilises a unique mechanical-hydrometallurgical process for enhanced asset recovery that is environmentally superior and safer.
TES-AMM Chairman and Managing Director Ram Ramachandran said, “TES-AMM has been a trusted leader in E-waste Recycling. Established in 2006, we have seen a great advancement of technology which means newer goods entering into the market.”
He added that TES-AMM is continuously striving to cater to the need by setting up state-of-the-art facilities that are ultramodern and cost-effective and provide safe and secure battery management.
MG, which launched ZS EV in early-2020, has retailed more than 1,000 units to date in India despite national and regional lockdowns.
The electric vehicle comes with overwhelming looks and a 0 to 100 kmph time of 8.5 seconds. It can also charge from 0% to 80% in 50 minutes approximately.
MG is setting up an integrated EV ecosystem across the country aimed at promoting the EV adoption while minimizing the overall ecological impact of EVs. The automaker has previously partnered with Umicore for the safe and secure disposal of batteries and Exicom Tele Systems as well as TATA Power for their second-life use for non-automotive purposes.
