Hyundai And Tata Power Aim To Make EV Chargers More Common In India


This partnership could well help accelerate EV adoption in India

 

Not to be caught napping when the Indian electric revolution arrives, Hyundai Motor India has signed a Memorandum of Association (MoA) with Tata Power to improve EV charging infrastructure in the country. 

Under this partnership,  the two companies will work to develop an EV charging infrastructure to expand it in the country. The partnership aims to offer public EV charging stations at Hyundai dealerships, as well as supply, installation and commissioning of home charging for Hyundai EV customers.

The charging stations at Hyundai dealerships will be open for all EV customers and can be accessed via dedicated apps. Hyundai is planning to instal 60kW DC fast chargers across its 34 dealerships in 29 cities on top of the existing 7.2kW AC fast chargers. Tata Power already has over 1000 EV charging stations across 180 cities in the country, with the aim to have up to 10,000 charging stations on highways to ease range anxiety. 

Hyundai, while it has the Kona Electric SUV as its sole EV in India, the carmaker plans to offer up to six new EVs by 2028 and invest up to Rs 4,000 crore for its electrification journey in India.

 

The new EVs will be based on existing platforms and on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP).The next confirmed new EV from Hyundai will be the Ioniq 5 hatchback which is slated for a launch in the second half of 2022. It’ll take on the Volvo XC40 Recharge and its cousin, the upcoming Kia EV6, which is also based on the Hyundai Group’s E-GMP.
