Built in compliance with the Bharat EV AC 001 standards released by DHI, Panasonic’s smart AC charging station comes equipped with 10KW power and can charge up to three electric vehicles simultaneously. The newly launched charging station also reduces the charge time significantly for lithium-ion battery-powered electric vehicles, almost 3 times faster than the conventional Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) Batteries.

With this association, Panasonic aims at strengthening the partnership with one of the progressive DISCOMS and scale it up in the future. The pilot facility inaugurated today is state of the art and comes with key advantages such as enforcing the authorised charging, automated revenue collection understanding of the charging behaviour and pattern, real-time charging data, app-based control and automated payment mechanism etc. apart from being the most reliable and rugged product in the market.

Manish Sharma, President & CEO Panasonic India said, “As the country ushers into this new age of transport, we are focusing on renewable and sustainable solutions that can help us realise our vision of “A Better Life, A Better World”. With the government giving impetus to the adoption of electric vehicles and aiming to switch to all-electric cars until 2030, it is essential to contribute meaningfully to the initiative. As a diversified technology company, we will continue to introduce products that can help achieve this goal.”

Speaking about the association, Atul Arya – Head Energy Systems Division, Panasonic India said, “We are delighted to extend our partnership further with BSES with the electric vehicle charging station at their campus. We envision a growing need for electric vehicles in India, as they are environmentally conscious and seen as automobiles of the next generations. This is a step towards our vision to create a smart charging network where it’s as easy as fuelling our vehicles today. Our charging stations are fully designed and developed in India R&D center and our endeavour is to drive the EV evolution from here.”

BSES spokesperson said, “It is proactively involved in the new developments in the energy space such as electric vehicles and it gives us immense pleasure to associate with Panasonic, which shares our objective of promoting the use of electric vehicles. This association is a step towards the larger goal of making efforts for sustainable development.”
