Tata Power expands EV charging ecosystem, ties up with Zoomcar car sharing platform

Tata Power EV Charging Solutions, a Tata Power group company and Zoomcar, the car sharing platform, have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote widespread electric vehicle adoption and deliver a user-friendly charging experience to EV users across India.

The MoU was signed between Tata Power EV Charging Solutions (TPEVCSL) and Zoomcar in Mumbai in the presence of Ashish Khanna, CEO, Tata Power Renewable Energy; Virendra Goyal, Head Business Development, EV Charging, Tata Power; and Greg Moran, CEO and co-founder, Zoomcar.

The collaboration aims to promote Tata Power's EZ Charge points on the Zoomcar platform and will focus on supporting existing and aspiring EV owners along with Zoomcar's existing customers. Tata Power, with its network of EZ Charge points across the country, will provide customers with easy access to streamline the EV charging process and address the challenges often associated with using the charging infrastructure. This, as per the company, will encourage more people to list their EVs on the Zoomcar platform and potential customers to opt for them.

Tata Power’s EZ Charge EV charging infrastructure includes over 50,000 home chargers, 4,370 public and semi-public charging points, and 250 bus-charging points across 350 cities including multiple highways. The company aims to set up 25,000 charging points in the next five years. Zoomcar, has over 20,000 cars on its technology-driven platform across India, Indonesia, and Egypt.

"This collaboration with Zoomcar is another milestone in our journey to speed up the green mobility transition in the country. As India’s leading EV charging infrastructure provider, we are constantly collaborating with industry partners such as Zoomcar to develop a technologically advanced and robust EV ecosystem in the country," said Dr. Praveer Sinha, CEO and MD, Tata Power.

Zoomcar CEO Greg Moran stated, "We are very excited to embark on this journey with Tata Power, leveraging their position as a leader in the field of EV charging. Our car-sharing platform is perfectly suited for electric vehicles and we expect to grow 50 % of our platform by 2025. This mutual partnership is poised to create a comprehensive ecosystem that fulfils the evolving needs of EV enthusiasts”

Tata Power’s customised solutions include software subscription services, a mobile app, charger hardware, a power supply, and power backend infrastructure. The Tata Power EZ Charge Mobile App facilitates locating EV charging stations in its EV charging network.

Recently, in July 2023, the company launched an RFID card that allows EV users to initiate charging by tapping the EZ CHARGE RFID card on the EZ charger at any location in the country.
