MG Motor India has partnered with Finnish company Fortum to set up what is claimed to be the country’s first 50 kW DC fast-charging EV stations ahead of the planned eZS electric SUV launch later this year. The SUV will be produced at the company’s Halol facility.
Under the partnership, Fortum will install 50 kW CCS/CHAdeMO DC public fast-charging stations for Electric Vehicles across MG’s showrooms in 5 cities including Delhi NCR, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad by September this year. One such charging station will come up at MG’s flagship showroom in Gurugram.
Cars compatible with CCS/CHAdeMO charging standards can access the chargers by registering with Fortum Charge & Drive India through its mobile app.
The upcoming launch of MG eZs is aligned with the government’s long-term objective to have more electric vehicles on the road in the next few years. We are delighted to be partnering with one of the leading EV Charging service provider in the global EV space to set up charging stations at MG dealerships in select cities to begin with – Rajeev Chaba, President & Managing Director, MG Motor India
We have already witnessed an uptake in adoption of electric vehicles in the last one year. This collaboration will further bolster this growth – Sanjay Aggarwal, Managing Director, Fortum India
