MG Motor and Tata Power announce the deployment of the first 50kW super-fast EV charging station in Chennai. Since the launch of ZS EV, MG Motor has been a forerunner in developing the e-mobility infrastructure in the country. These charging stations will help create a sustainable tech-driven approach aiding the country’s push for electrification.
MG Motors Vision on Charging Infrastructure
These state-of-the-art EV charging stations with their customer-centric approach will ensure that India is EV-ready. MG Motor’s vision to deploy a robust EV charging ecosystem with 50kW and 60kW DC superfast charging is progressing at a good pace. Currently, the company has installed 22 superfast charging stations across 17 cities like Delhi-NCR, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, and Nagpure to name a few. In 2021, the company had added charging stations in Coimbatore, Cochin, and Mangalore with Chennai one being the 5th launch in 2021. These superfast charging stations will cater to all the electric vehicles that are compatible with CSS fast-charging standards. The company claims that its electric vehicle offering the ZS EV can be charged from 0 to 80% in under 50 minutes.
Tie-up With Tata Power
The collaboration with other industry experts will help MG Motor to achieve its target more efficiently. Tata Power is one such pioneer in the energy sector and is India’s largest integrated power company. MG Motor’s tie-up with Tata Power will help smooth out the transition to electric vehicles in the country. Tata Power is one of the leading integrated players in the e-mobility sector and has deployed a total of 400 chargers across 45 cities.
Electric Vehicles in India
As per recent reports, there is a sudden spike in the demand for electric vehicles post the petrol hike. Customers are already looking to make their shift from fuel-powered vehicles to emission-free battery-powered motors. But, the main ingredient for a successful e-mobility market is the presence of a robust and wide charging infrastructure which is still at a nascent stage in India. But, the number of companies joining the electric vehicle bandwagon will help improve the e-mobility infrastructure greatly.
