LEH, May 17: An MoU was today signed between Hyundai Motor India and Tata Power to build a robust EV charging network and boost EV adoption in India at its dealerships.
Through this association, Hyundai will become a key contributor in expansion of quality charging infrastructure.
HMIL currently has an existing network of 34 EV dealers in 29 cities, equipped with AC 7.2 kW chargers, and aims to expand the charging infra network across its pan India dealerships.
“The vehicle charging time of the DC 60 kW charger is much lesser than AC 7.2 kW charger. These DC 60 kW charging stations will enhance customer convenience,”
Unsoo Kim, MD & CEO, Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) said adding: “This partnership will power-up the nations’ electric mobility mission by offering end-to-end EV charging infrastructure at HMIL dealerships along with supply, installation and commissioning of home charging for HMIL EV customers, thereby enhancing customer convenience and ease of adoption of electric vehicles.”
Dr. Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD, Tata Power said, “Our collaboration with Hyundai Motor India aligns with the Government of India’s National Electric Mobility Mission Plan and demonstrates our commitment to leading India’s clean energy and net-zero goals.”
Under this collaboration, public EV charging stations at Hyundai dealership locations will be installed and end-to-end charging solutions at home will be offered for customer convenience and hassle-free EV ownership. The charging stations at Hyundai dealerships will be open for all electric vehicle customers and accessible through Hyundai and Tata Power EZ Charge Mobile App.
