Tata Power said on Monday it now has a network of over 1,000 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations across India, in a major push for green mobility in the country.

The charging stations have been installed at offices, malls, hotels, retail outlets and places of public access, “enabling clean mobility and freedom from range-anxiety”, the company said in a press release.

Tata Power, which installed the first EV charging station in Mumbai, now has charging points across 180 cities, the company said, adding that there are also close to 10,000 home EV charging points.

“We have started the first of our many milestones towards enabling the EV revolution in the country through successful deployment of over 1,000 EV charging points in public domain. This makes Tata Power the country’s largest EV charging solutions provider,” Praveer Sinha, chief executive officer of Tata Power, said.

The company said it has tied up with automakers, including Tata Motors, MG Motors India, Jaguar Land Rover, TVS, to develop EV charging infrastructure for customers and dealers.

 

EV Charging Infrastructure

Tata Power said it also collaborates with Indian Oil, Hindustan Petroleum, Indraprastha Gas, MGL and some state governments to develop EV charging infrastructure across the country.

With EVs gaining traction, Tata Power said it has also expanded into the electric 3-wheeler and 2-wheeler charging market.

Earlier this month, Tata Power and TVS Motor Co, a leading maker of two-wheelers and three-wheelers, signed a deal to set up EV charging infrastructure across India and deploy solar power technologies at TVS Motor locations.

The partnership aims to create a large dedicated electric two-wheeler charging infrastructure to accelerate electric mobility in India, the company said.

Tata Power has also developed a software platform and released a mobile-based application, Tata Power EZCharge, to help customers locate EV charging stations, charge EVs and make bill payments online.
