Tata Group’s two leading arms i.e. electric utility giant Tata Power and automotive manufacturer Tata Motors have entered into a partnership to install 300 fast charging stations across five key cities.

These charging stations will be installed in Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Bangalore and Hyderabad by the end of the financial year 2020.

To begin with this partnership, Tata Group’s both companies have inaugurated their first 7 fast charging stations in Pune, in order to enable e-mobility drive in the city.

Over the next two months, 45 more chargers will be installed across the other four cities. These chargers will be installed at Tata Motors dealerships, certain Tata Group retail outlets and other public locations.

The chargers will be operated by Tata Power and will adhere to Bharat Standard (15 kW) for the initial 50 chargers.

Going forward, we will also have charging stations that will adhere to 30-50 kW DC CCS2 Standard. These chargers can be accessed by any electric vehicle user, having cars compatible with the above charging standards.
