Hyundai expands ultra-fast EV charging network across India, sets up 11 new stations

Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) has expanded its Ultra-Fast charging station network across India, setting up a total of 11 stations. These stations are located in key cities like Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Gurugram, and Bangalore, as well as on major highways including Delhi-Chandigarh, Delhi-Jaipur, Hyderabad-Vijayawada, Mumbai-Surat, and Mumbai-Nashik.

Each of these charging stations features three charging points, offering different capacities (DC 150kW, DC 60kW, and DC 30kW) to cater to various EV models. Most of these stations are operational 24x7 and are equipped with amenities like restaurants and shopping complexes for the convenience of EV users.

Jae Wan Ryu, Executive Director, Corporate Planning, HMIL, emphasised the company's commitment to enhancing the EV ownership experience and supporting the Indian government's push for electrification. Hyundai aims to provide quick charging solutions, especially for its IONIQ 5 customers who can charge their vehicles from 10% to 80% in just 21 minutes.

These Ultra-Fast charging stations offer charging sessions at competitive prices, starting from Rs 18 per unit for the 30kW charger, Rs 21 per unit for the 60kW charger, and Rs 24 per unit for the 150kW charger. Customers can easily locate and book charging slots through Hyundai's app, myHyundai, which also provides navigation, digital payments, and charging status monitoring.

Looking ahead, Hyundai plans to expand its Ultra-Fast charging network to 10 or more new locations in 2024, with a focus on enhancing the overall EV experience for both Hyundai and non-Hyundai EV users. Additionally, the company has committed to installing 100 charging stations by 2027 as part of its agreement with the Government of Tamil Nadu.
