Tata Motors has teamed up with its sister company Tata Power to set up 300 fast charging stations by the end of the FY20, across 5 cities including Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Bangalore, and Hyderabad. Both companies have inaugurated their first 7 charging stations in Pune.
Over the next two months, 45 more chargers will be installed across the other 4 cities. These chargers will be installed at Tata Motors dealerships, certain Tata Group retail outlets, and other public locations. The chargers will be operated by Tata Power and will adhere to Bharat Standard (15 kW) for the initial 50 chargers. At a later date, there’ll be 30-50 kW DC CCS2 compliant charging stations.
These chargers can be accessed by any electric vehicle user, having cars compatible with the above charging standards. Tata Power and Tata Motors have jointly developed an attractive charging tariff for Tata Motors EV customers, the companies added.
Our aim is to make EV Charging as fast and easy as possible for all Indians and we are very pleased to partner with Tata Motors, with whom we jointly identified high priority locations which could be preferred by the potential EV owners – Praveer Sinha, MD & CEO Tata Power
Tata Power currently has 42 EV charging points in Mumbai and a total of 85 charging points across multiple cities including Hyderabad, Bangalore and Delhi. The company has signed MoUs for setting up commercial EV charging stations at HPCL, IOCL, and IGL retail outlets.
