Hyundai Motor India Ltd. has announced the successful expansion of its Ultra-High Speed Public EV Charging Network across key highways and cities in India. This move is part of Hyundai’s aim to spearhead the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) in India and alleviate range anxiety for both intercity and intracity travel.

Hyundai Ultra-Fast charging stations

Hyundai has set up a total of eleven Ultra-Fast charging stations, each equipped with three charging points of varying capacities – DC 150 kW, DC 60 kW, and DC 30 kW. This makes Hyundai the only Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) in India to set up such a network.

The expanded public charging network is available across six key cities – Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Gurugram, and Bangalore, and on five major highway locations – Delhi-Chandigarh, Delhi-Jaipur, Hyderabad-Vijayawada, Mumbai-Surat, and Mumbai-Nashik. Most of these chargers are operational round the clock for the convenience of customers and are available for all Hyundai and non-Hyundai customers.

To enhance the customer experience, these charging stations are manned by dedicated personnel and are located near multiple customer amenities such as coffee shops and restaurants. This allows customers to take care of their needs while their vehicles are being charged.

Speed and Cost

Hyundai IONIQ 5 customers can charge their vehicles from 10% to 80% within just 21 minutes using these Ultra-Fast DC chargers. The charging sessions can be booked at an attractive price – ₹18 per unit for the 30 kW Charger, ₹21 per unit for the 60 kW Charger, and ₹24 per unit for the 150 kW Charger.

The EV charging stations are visible on Hyundai’s app, myHyundai, under the ‘EV Charge’ section. This feature allows users to discover chargers, navigate to them, pre-book charging slots, make digital payments, and monitor charging status. In addition to these Ultra-Fast chargers, more than 2900+ charging points are mapped in the ‘EV Charge’ section of the myHyundai app for customer convenience. This app is open and accessible for all Hyundai as well as non-Hyundai EV users.

Hyundai plans to expand its Ultra-Fast charging stations to 10 or more new locations in 2024. These sites will be located across India, demonstrating Hyundai’s commitment to enhancing the overall EV experience for all users.

Furthermore, Hyundai Motor India Ltd. is planning to install 100 Charging stations by 2027, as per the agreement with the Government of Tamil Nadu in the recently concluded Global Investor Meet held in January 2024.
