Tata Power and TVS Motor team up to build an EV charging infrastructure
TVS Motor has announced its partnership with Tata Power for the countrywide development of the Electric Vehicle Charging infrastructure (EVCI).
The agreement memorandum of understanding (MoU) states that Electric Vehicles Charging Infrastructure (EVCI) is implemented throughout India by both organizations and that they are using solar power technology in TVS Motor facilities.
In order to speed up electric mobility in India, the alliance wants to build a specific two-wheeler electric charging infrastructure. It helps TVS iQube electric scooter consumers to use the TVS Motor consumer connect application and the Tata Power EZ charge app across India to have a widespread charging network by Tata Power.
The agreement is aimed at establishing a regular AC charging network, as well as a fast-charging DC network for two-wheeled electric vehicles. “This collaboration with Tata Power marks yet another critical milestone in allowing the country to achieve a greener future,” stated Joint Managing Director Sudarshan Venu of TVS Motor Company. Through world-class fast-charging solutions, our alliance will significantly improve customer convenience.”
Tata Power CEO and MD Praveer Sinha said “Through this collaboration, we will further leverage our expertise to enhance synergy between sustainable mobility and renewable energy integration resulting in the creation of a robust EV charging eco-system across India.”
In its quest for sustainability, the alliance also intended to explore the utilization of solar energy options for powering selected TVS Motor facilities.
This collaboration is part of TVS Motor’s plans to strengthen the presence of TVS iQube Electric in over 25 cities over the next few months, as announced earlier this year. The TVS iQube Electric is presently available in Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, Pune, Kochi, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Surat, Vizag, Jaipur, and Ahmedabad, with more cities to come in the coming months. Tata Power now has a network of more than 5,000 home chargers and more than 700 public chargers in over 120 Indian cities.
