India’s largest Electric Vehicle (EV) charging station was recently inaugurated on the Delhi-Jaipur National Highway in Gurugram on Friday.
India is facing two major problems in the direction of adopting electric mobility. Including the high cost and charging infrastructure of electric vehicles. The government, along with private companies, is working on accelerating the use of electric vehicles in the country. Various subsidies like FAME II and other policies are contributing to making electric vehicles affordable in India and automakers are investing in the localization of electric cars.
For the charging infrastructure, the government is partnering with various players to expand the public charging network in India so that EV buyers are able to address the range concerns. Meanwhile, India’s largest Electric Vehicle (EV) charging station was recently inaugurated on the Delhi-Jaipur National Highway in Gurugram on Friday.
The new charging station has a capacity of 100 charging points for four wheelers. The station is bigger than the EV charging station located in Navi Mumbai with 16 AC and 4 DC charging ports. The company recently announced in a press note that its new Gurugram station is now operational with 96 chargers for EVs.
The station, located in Sector 52 of Gurugram, has been developed by tech-piloting company Alektrify Private Limited. This EV charging station will not only give a boost to the electric vehicle industry in the region, but will also serve as a benchmark for larger EV charging stations across the country in future.
