Kia India today inaugurated India's fastest '240kWh' charger for EV passenger vehicles at its dealer Incheon Kia, in Kochi. This follows the company setting up a 150kWh charger for passenger cars in Gurgaon in July 2022. Customers can avail this charging facility at the Kochi dealership by paying per usage.

Kia India says it will also “accommodate the charging needs of EVs from other OEMs through these charging stations.” 

According to Myung-sik Sohn, Chief Sales Officer, Kia India said, "These are exciting times for EVs, and we aim not just to be a part of the mobility revolution of EVs in India but to make EV ownership aspirational, accessible, and inclusive. Our EV journey in India does not stop here. In fact, we are in the process of setting up more charging stations at our EV dealerships across the country, ensuring superior customer experience and reducing the issue of charging time and range anxiety that usually follows EV customers."

On June 2, 2022, Kia India launched its first fully electric car – the EV6 –which is based on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) platform. The Kia EV6 offers a range of 528km on a full charge and can be charged 10-80 percent in as little as 18 minutes using a 350-kW charger. As part of its EV roadmap, Kia will launch its India-centric EV by 2025 in the country.
