Tata Power expands EV charging station network to over 1,000 across India 

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 25 Oct 2021


Tata Power, one of India’s largest private-sector integrated companies, now has a network of more than 1,000 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations across the country. 

This 1,000-strong network of public EV charging stations provides seamless EV charging experiences for Tata Power customers across offices, malls, hotels, retail outlets and places of public access, enabling clean mobility and freedom from range-anxiety.  In addition, there are close to 10,000 home EV charging points, which make EV charging an easy affair for EV owners. The Tata Power EZ chargers ecosystem covers the entire value chain of public chargers, captive chargers, bus/ fleet chargers and home chargers.

Starting with the first chargers being installed in Mumbai, Tata Power EV charging points are now present in nearly 180 cities and in multiple State and National highways under various business models and market segments. The company plans to have a base of 10,000 charging stations as also to enable whole stretches of highways into e-highways across the length and breadth of the country.

“We have started the first of our many milestones towards enabling the EV revolution in the country through successful deployment of over 1,000 EV charging points in public domain. This makes Tata Power the country’s largest EV charging solutions provider. Our innovative and collaborative approach has made a significant impact in developing this ecosystem and encouraging EV adoption in the country. We remain committed to playing a key role along with other stakeholders in achieving the national goal of transition to green mobility,” said Dr Praveer Sinha, CEO and MD, Tata Power.

Tata Power has also collaborated with OEMs and has partnered with Tata Motors, MG Motors India, Jaguar Land Rover and TVS Motor to develop EV charging infrastructure for their customers and dealers. The partnerships with multiple state transport utilities facilitate e-bus charging, furthering the cause of green public transport. Tata Power also actively collaborates with IOCL, HPCL, IGL, MGL and multiple State governments for developing EV Charging Infrastructure (EVCI).

With a marked shift in EV adoption, particularly in key cities and metros, the company has expanded its footprint into the electric three-wheeler and two-wheeler charging market. Earlier this month, Tata Power and TVS Motor inked a strategic partnership to drive the comprehensive implementation of EVCI across India and deploy solar power technologies at TVS Motor locations.

In July 2021, Tata Power and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL) joined forces to provide end-to-end EV charging stations at HPCL’s retail outlets (fuel stations) in multiple cities and major highways across the country.
