History of Ecogears
Ecogears was born in 2017 when Karnataka became the first Indian state to launch an EV policy after the announcement of the Indian government to become carbon neutral nation by 2030. The ecogears blog stood at the forefront of the EV revolution in India, making people aware of the financial benefits of switching to electric vehicles and their positive impact on the environment.
Ecogears became a full-fledged electric vehicle website in 2019 after being recognized by the Ministry of Heavy Industries as “EV Media”, becoming the only source of reliable and accurate information on electric vehicle policies, subsidies, and setting up EV charging stations. We added contact forms for people to connect with us and assisted them to install the initial EV charging stations in India across different Indian States. By mid-2022, we assisted and installed more than 134 AC and DC EV charging stations in India.
A dedicated segment for EV charging Ecocharger.in was introduced in 2022 as a sub-brand of Ecogears. We developed several revolutionary technologies and a complete financial projection for the EV charging business in India. Both Ecogears and Ecochargers are owned by Abhishek Gautam through the Ecogears EV Ecosystems company.
