Tata Power partners with Hyundai Motor India to Power-up EV-charging Infrastructure in India
Tata Power, one of India’s largest integrated power companies and a leading provider of EV charging infrastructure, has formed a strategic partnership with Hyundai Motor India Ltd. (HMIL), the country’s first smart mobility solutions provider and the largest exporter since its inception, to build a robust EV charging network and accelerate EV adoption across India.
Hyundai Motor India Ltd. would become a key contributor to the expansion of quality charging infrastructure as a result of this collaboration.
The MoU was signed at HMIL’s headquarters in Gurugram, Haryana, in the presence of Dr. Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD, Tata Power, and Mr. Unsoo Kim, MD & CEO, Hyundai Motor India Limited.
“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. Tata Power’s expertise in EV charging space coupled with comprehensive charging solutions and countrywide ownership of Hyundai vehicles, will help in the development of sustainable mobility infrastructure, boosting faster EV adoption,”Dr. Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD, Tata Power.
Tata Power will install Tata Power EZ Charge fast chargers (DC 60 kW) at HMIL’s existing 34 EV dealer locations across 29 cities, as well as supply, install, and commission home charging for HMIL’s EV customers, as part of the partnership. The collaboration will make Tata Power and HMIL key contributors to charging infrastructure expansion. Currently, all 34 HMIL dealer locations have AC 7.2 kW chargers, and the company plans to expand the fast charging infrastructure network across its pan-India dealerships. Customers will benefit greatly from this new partnership because a DC 60 kW charger takes much less time to charge a vehicle than an AC 7.2 kW charger. Customers will benefit from charging stations with a capacity of 60 kW.
“Realising Hyundai’s global vision of ‘Progress for Humanity’ and in line with our new brand direction of going ‘Beyond Mobility, Hyundai Motor India is glad to announce its partnership with Tata Power to facilitate and strengthen India’s robust EV ecosystem and enhance the general outlook on sustainable transportation, reaffirming Hyundai’s vision to integrate social responsibility with economic prosperity and community wellness. Such strategic partnerships are fundamental in accelerating the adoption of Electric Vehicles by customers to achieve the national goal of carbon neutrality. This partnership will power up the nation’s 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,”Mr. Unsoo Kim, MD & CEO, Hyundai Motor India Limited.
Customers of all-electric vehicles will be able to use charging stations at HMIL dealerships as part of the collaboration. Tata Power will also provide end-to-end charging solutions at the homes of HMIL’s EV owners for their convenience, resulting in hassle-free EV ownership.
Tata Power will invest in, own, and operate the charging stations, while HMIL dealerships will provide space and necessary administrative approvals. Customers across the country will benefit from the easy accessibility of charging stations via HMIL and the Tata Power EZ Charge Mobile App.
With over 1500 public and semi-public EV chargers installed and another 550+ chargers in various stages of installation, Tata Power is India’s leading provider of EV charging solutions. In addition, the company has installed a network of 13000+ home chargers (for private use) and 200+ bus charging points across India.
