Tata Power partners with MG Motor to expand India’s DC fast charging network
Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power utility, today, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with MG Motor. As part of the association, Tata Power will install 50kW DC fast chargers at select MG dealerships across India to encourage electric mobility and kickstart the EV movement in the country.
Through this association, MG Motor aims to lay a specific focus on the key target cities they will be foraying into as a part of their future EV expansion plans. These superfast 50kW DC chargers will be accessible by both MG ZS EV customers as well as other EVs compatible with the CCS/CHAdeMO charging standards, like the Tata Nexon EV and the Hyundai Kona Electric.
After signing the MOU, Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD, Tata Power Company Limited, said, “We are delighted to associate with MG Motor India as an end-to-end EV charging partner as also work on second life of battery usage in future. As India’s leading integrated player in the EV charging space, we aim to provide customers a seamless charging experience. We are confident that this partnership with MG Motor will further boost our country’s ability to adopt the range of electric vehicles that MG Motor has to offer.”
Speaking on this association, Rajeev Chaba, President and MD, MG Motor India, said, “Further strengthening our commitment to India, we aim to provide our customers with a robust charging ecosystem to promote the adoption of cleaner and greener mobility solutions. With a partner like Tata Power, a known major in the field of power & renewable energy, we are confident that we will create a distinct synergy together.”
MG Motor India already has 10 50kW charging stations across its dealerships in five cities - New Delhi- NCR, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru and Hyderabad – and is expanding them to more cities. Tata Power, on the other hand, has an elaborate network of EV Charging stations with over 180 charging points in 19 cities.
