With Accor’s aim to take steps towards sustainability and protecting the environment, Ibis Mumbai Vikhroli becomes the first of Accor hotels in Mumbai to have an EV charging point for electric vehicle charging, in association with Magenta. Created for public use, anyone can charge their vehicle, with the help of chargegrid app. As part of this initiative, Ibis has also deployed an EV model car for guest requirements too. All Ibis hotels across India will also join in eventually.
Anant Leekha, GM, ibis Vikhroli said, ‘With this new addition of EV charging points within ibis premise, we are hoping to help the EV owners and drivers. There is a growing demand for EVs, especially in the first-last mile mobility space. All our hotels have wall-mounted dispensers for all toiletries to avoid single-use plastic waste, Ibis as a brand has been conscious about its carbon footprint and has continuously worked towards adopting sustainable practices”.
