Tata Passenger Electric Mobility to set up over 10,000 charging stations by FY25 in collaboration with charge point operators

Tata Passenger Electric Mobility today signed an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with leading charge point operators (CPOs), Chargezone, Glida, Statiq, and Zeon, to further develop India’s charging infrastructure.

This MoU crucially builds on the significant existing presence of each operator in the charging ecosystem and TPEM’s unique telematics insights basis more than 1.15 lakh Tata EVs on Indian roads, the press release noted.

Chargezone, Glida (formerly known as Fortum Charge & Drive India), Statiq, and Zeon are leading CPOs in the country, with a combined network of nearly 2,000 charging points across key cities.Through this collaboration, the CPOs intend to roll out over 10,000 additional charging points within the next 12-15 months.

Through this MoU, TPEM will also work with Chargezone, Glida, Statiq, and Zeon to explore the possibility to roll-out a smart payment gateway through co-branded RFID cards respectively, that will enable ease of payment for Tata EV users. Furthermore, customers can avail benefits of loyalty programs from these respective CPOs and access a dedicated customer care number for any assistance.

Balaje Rajan, Chief Strategy Officer, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd., and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd., said, “This collaboration will benefit from TPEM’s unparalleled EV usage insights, coupled with the CPOs’ innovative charging solutions and entrepreneurial spirit, and create 10,000+ additional charging points in the country by FY25.”

Out of the 10,000 charging points, Zeon will be deploying 5,000 by CY2025. 

Karthikeyan Palanisamy, CEO, Zeon, speaking onthe announcement said, " At Zeon we believe that it is not just enough to have chargers, but it is more important to have charging stations that customers can rely upon.“

Global case studies consistently demonstrate how widespread and easily accessible charging infrastructure is a crucial element of the EV ecosystem. The expansion of charging infrastructure has been shown to lead to a significant increase in the adoption of EVs.

This innovative open collaboration between major CPOs and TPEM is anticipated to expedite the development of charging infrastructure in the nation, thereby playing a pivotal role in making EV adoption more widespread.

In addition to this, an open collaboration with BPCL aims to set up 7,000 chargers over the next year.
