Hyundai will set up these EV charging stations in 34 dealerships in 29 cities and will service all types of electric vehicles through Hyundai and the Tata Power EZ Charge mobile app.
Hyundai Motor in India has teamed up with Tata Power to create a fast EV charging infrastructure at its dealerships across India. The Korean carmaker, which is set to launch its second EV offering in the country with Ioniq 5, is setting up an EV charging network at some of its individual dealerships. Hyundai is already offering the Kona electric SUV in India, which is one of the first EV models to be launched in the country.
Under an agreement between the automaker and Tata Power, several 60 kW fast DC charging stations will be installed at 34 Hyundai EV dealerships in 29 cities. These EV charging stations will service all types of electric vehicles through Hyundai and Dad Power EZ Charge mobile app. Owners of Hyundai EV will also receive special tariff and end-to-end solutions for home charging as part of the deal.
“The company is pleased to announce its partnership with Tata Power to facilitate and strengthen India’s robust EV ecosystem and improve the overall view of sustainable transport, reaffirming Hyundai’s vision of integrating social responsibility with economic and societal well-being,” said Unsu Kim, MD. director. at Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL), the statement said.
Prow Xinha, MD and CEO of Tata Power, said: “Our collaboration with Hyundai Motor India is in line with the Indian Government’s National Mission Plan for Electric Mobility and demonstrates our commitment to India’s clean energy and zero needs goals.”
“This partnership will strengthen the country’s mission in electric mobility by offering end-to-end EV charging infrastructure at the company’s dealerships along with the supply, installation and commissioning of home charging for HMIL EV customers, thereby increasing customer convenience and ease of electric vehicle adoption,” Kim added. .
The agreement is seen as Hyundai’s final push towards India’s electrification. The Korean automaker recently said it would invest ₹4,000 crore to increase its presence in the four-wheeled EV segment in India. Hyundai aims to launch as many as six electric vehicles in the next 6 years. The Ioniq 5 will be the first of these six models.
