Ultraviolette launches SUPERNOVA DC Fast Charging Stations

Written by News Team

In a move towards accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles, Bengaluru-based electric vehicle startup, Ultraviolette, has launched its new DC fast charging infrastructure dubbed the UV Supernova.

The SUPERNOVA Charging Stations

The Supernova charging stations come in two capacities – 6kW (Supernova) and 12kW (Supernova Plus) – and can charge two bikes at the same time. Each charging station comprises two plugs which can top up the F77’s battery from 20-80 percent in less than an hour. This claimed charging time is much quicker than the Boost Charger that takes approximately four hours from zero to full battery SOC.

Ultraviolette Expansion Plans

Currently, the company plans on deploying hundred such charging stations across India with ten such stations already established across three major states – Maharashtra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Ultraviolette also recently partnered with HPCL, which gave the company access to set up its charging stations at HPCL retail fuel pumps in 12 states.


The UV Supernova charging infrastructure is currently compatible with the Ultraviolette F77 e-bike that has a claimed IDC range of 307km in its top Recon guise. The F77 is the first electric bike that can genuinely be used to cover long distances at speed and the establishment of this charging infrastructure will prove greatly beneficial to the dedicated few who do decide to embark on a long road trip aboard an EV.

This launch marks a significant step towards Ultraviolette’s vision of providing its customers with hassle-free intercity rides. With the introduction of the Supernova DC Fast Charging Stations, the charging speed for Ultraviolette F77 and F77 Recon motorcycles will be significantly increased.
