To reduce environmental pollution, the carbon footprint and enhance sustainability, vehicle manufacturers are pushing towards electrification. But electricity cannot be poured into a fuel tank like petrol and diesel and EVs typically take a long time to recharge, some even take overnight hours on a home charging system, repelling most buyers’. But with a robust DC fast-charging system, a compatible fully electric car can be recharged within an hour or kept topped up in minutes.
To boost such an electric ecosystem and decrease the range anxiety of the customer, MG Motor India joined hands with Tata Power and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on 8th of June 2020 under which the brand would deploy end-to-end EV charging solutions to MG dealerships spread across India. As part of the association, the integrated power utility company will provide 50kW DC SuperFast chargers at select MG dealership locations in India.
MG Motor India and Tata Power Corporation Limited have today inaugurated the first SuperFast Charging EV station in Nagpur. The new 50 KW DC SuperFast Charging station is a public EV charging station available to all vehicles compatible with CCS/ CHAdeMO fast-charging standards. To put things into perspective, the MG ZS EV can be charged up to 80% in 50 minutes at the facility.
In addition to this, MG Motor India has a total of 10 SuperFast 50 kW charging stations across its dealerships in five cities – New Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad and is committed to expanding further to more cities. On the other hand, Tata Power, under the EZ Charge brand already has an established EV charging solution with over 200+ Charging points spread across 24 different cities in India, further strengthening MG’s commitment to providing a 5-way charging ecosystem which includes – 50 KW DC SuperFast Charging, free-of-cost AC fast-charger installation at the customer’s home/office, extended charging network, a cable to charge anywhere and charge-on-the-go with RSA (Roadside Assistance).
