HPCL and Tata Power are working to set up EV charging outlets in multiple cities as well as alongside the highways across the country. Tata Power will provide its EV charging infrastructure that enables charging via the company's 'EZ Charge Mobile' platform, at HPCL petrol pumps.
Let us tell you that Tata Power currently has a network of over 500 public chargers across over 100 cities that have been set up at petrol pumps, metro stations, shopping malls, theatres, and highways. With this, the EV owners can charge their vehicles at nominal prices These charging stations are available across all segments of the EV ecosystem including public, captive charging, home, and workplace charging as well as ultra-rapid chargers for buses.
Mr Sandeep Bangia, Head - EV Charging, Tata Power, said, “We are excited to partner with HPCL who share our vision of sustainable mobility. This strategic tie-up provides us access to a vast retail base of HPCL, especially in cities and along the key highways. The move will tremendously benefit the EV users as it will not only provide them easy access to charging points but also remove the range anxiety, resulting in wider adoption of electric vehicles in the country.”
