MG Motor India has revealed that it has tied up with Delta Electronics India to establish fast charging stations for electric vehicles (EV). As part of the tie-up, Delta will install AC chargers in private vehicle parking locations such as homes and offices enabling MG customers to charge their EVs free of cost as per their convenience. 

The move comes ahead of the launch of MG Motor’s ZS EV in India next year. The model is currently on sale in the UK, Thailand and China. 

“Our partnership with Delta is another aspect of our commitment to helping us (the company) pioneer and further develop the ecosystem for EVs in India, months ahead of the scheduled launch,” MG Motor India Chief Commercial Officer, Gaurav Gupta said. 

The partnership expands our infrastructure push for EVs in both slow and fast charging segments, he added. 

The upcoming launch of MG ZS EV next year is aligned with the government’s objective to bring more EVs on the road in India. The MG ZS EV has crossed around 1,000 orders within two weeks of its launch in the UK. 

“As EVs have been greatly promoted by the government, we are constantly evaluating the Indian market from charging infrastructure perspective and will continue to provide innovative solutions to EV users,” Delta Electronics India Business Head (Energy Infrastructure Solutions) Niranjan Nayak said. 

In July, we reported that MG Motor India and Fortum Charge & Drive India have undertaken the first step towards creating DC EV Fast Charging infrastructure (50 KW) in the country.

The carmaker has announced a tie-up with leading Finland-based clean energy major Fortum to install the country’s first 50 KW DC fast-charging EV stations. Under the partnership, Fortum will install 50 KW CCS/CHAdeMO DC fast Public Charging Stations for Electric Vehicles across MG’s showrooms in 5 cities including Delhi NCR, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad by September this year to begin with.

The smart chargers can be accessed by an EV user, having cars compatible with CCS/CHAdeMO charging standards by registering with Fortum Charge & Drive India through its Mobile App.
