MG Charge to install 1,000 EV chargers in residential areas across India

MG Motor India, as part of its focus to drive EV adoption has announced its new venture christened ‘MG Charge’, which aims to install 1,000 AC fast chargers at residential localities across India, which it claimed to be the first-ever initiative by an OEM in the coutry.

The SMART chargers will be Type 2 chargers, supporting most of the leading current and future EVs. They will be sim-enabled and support a sharable Charger Management System. The charging stations will cater to the residents and visitors of these societies for their EV charging needs, operating 24x7.

MG will collaborate with Electreefi (MG Developer Program & Grant 2.0 winner), Exicom, Echargebays, Resident Welfare Associations, and other new partners to enable this initiative. 

Rajeev Chaba, president and MD, MG Motor India, said, “With the launch of MG Charge, we will bring increased convenience and address the charging concern of the customers, encouraging more to adopt the EV lifestyle. With this initiative, we will now have a 6-way charging solution for our customers and provide increased assurance and confidence.” 

MG Motor India will collaborate with RWA and provide end-to-end guidance, coordination, and support for the installation process, saving cost for the selected residential societies.

The OEM has also partnered with Fortum and Tata Power to introduce superfast charging stations.
