Tata Power signs MoU with MG Motor for EV chargers

Our Bureau Mumbai | Updated on June 08, 2020

Tata Power has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with MG Motor to deploy 50KW DC Superfast chargers at select MG dealerships.

These superfast 50KW DC chargers will be accessible by both MG ZS EV customers as well as other EV owners whose automobiles are compatible with the CCS/CHAdeMO charging standards.

Further, the Tata Power- MG Motor partnership will also explore the possibility of second life management of EV batteries, which involves battery management techniques when they no longer meet EV performance standards.

Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD, Tata Power said, “We are delighted to associate with MG Motor India as an end-to-end EV charging partner as also to work on second life of battery usage in future. We are confident that this partnership with MG Motor will further boost our country’s ability to adopt the range of electric vehicles that MG Motor has to offer.”

With this association, MG Motor aims to focus on the key target cities where they intend to foray as a part of their EV expansion plans.

Rajeev Chaba, President & MD, MG Motor India, said, “Further strengthening our commitment to India, we aim to provide our customers with a robust charging ecosystem to promote the adoption of cleaner and greener mobility solutions.”

MG Motor India has 10 SuperFast 50 kW charging stations across its dealerships in five cities - New Delhi- NCR, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru and Hyderabad – and is expanding them to more cities. Tata Power, on the other hand, has established an elaborate EV Charging ecosystem with 180 charging points in 19 different cities under the EZ Charge brand, along with digital platform to facilitate customers.
