Tata Motors and Tata Power inaugurated high-speed CCS2 EV charging stations in Surat, Gujarat in western India, and in Chandigarh, which is at the capital of Haryana and Punjab, in northern India.
One charging station each has been set up at Shreeji Automart in Piplod, Pramukh Auto at Umiya Nagar in Surat, and at RSA Motors in Chandigarh.
In Gujarat, the company now operates the largest EV charging network of 5 charging stations in Surat and 18 throughout the State. They are located on the Ahmedabad – Vadodara – Surat, Ahmedabad – Rajkot and Ahmedabad – Gandhinagar routes.
In Chandigarh, the number of charging stations has gone up to 3 while the company operates 6 charging stations across Punjab. The charging stations are located on the Chandigarh-Ludhiana and Chandigarh-Ambala routes.
The high-speed EV charger is equipped to charge the Nexon EV from 0-80% in one hour, and is accessible via the Tata Power EZ Charge app. The app enables Nexon EV users to easily find, pay for, and use the charging station. The app also allows users to monitor their charge status and get notified when they are ready to go.
Sandeep Bangia, Head of EV, HA & ESCO Business, Tata Power, said, “Currently, all the 4,000+ Tata Nexon EV owners can access over 292 charging points installed in 92 cities and on several prominent intercity routes across India. The CCS2 charging station is typically installed at workplaces, hotels, and commercial areas where EV owners normally spend several hours and can conveniently recharge their vehicles.”
In May, Tata Motors and Tata Power had installed EV charging stations in Jaipur in Rajasthan, and in Bhubaneshwar and Cuttack in Odisha.
