Tata Motors working with Tata Power to set up 300 fast-charging infrastructure for electric mobility, mainly across five metropolitan cities, namely Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Bangalore and Hyderabad.. 

Tata Power and Tata Motors announce their partnership to install 300 fast charging stations by the end of the FY20, across key five cities. On Saturday, both companies inaugurated their first 7 charging stations in Pune, to enable the e-mobility drive in the city. Over the next two months, 45 more chargers will be installed across the other four cities. 
The company has already inaugurated seven charging stations in Pune and has plans to install another 45 chargers in the other four metropolis over the next two months. These chargers will be installed at Tata Motors dealerships, certain Tata Group retail outlets and other public locations.
First set of chargers adhere to 15kW Bharat Standard, future chargers to adhere to 30-50kW DC CCS 2 standards as well.
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 to the above charging standards. 
Tata Power and Tata Motors have jointly developed an attractive charging tariff for Tata Motors EV customers. Tata EV buyers will get three months of free charging, but chargers will be accessible to other compatible EVs as well.
“We are committed to making India EV ready in line with the government’s ambition of providing green technology solutions and Tata Group’s vision of reducing India’s carbon footprint. Our aim is to make EV charging as fast and easy as possible for all Indians and we are very pleased to partner with Tata Motors, with whom we jointly identified high priority locations which could be preferred by the potential EV owners,” Praveer Sinha, MD and CEO o Tata Power, said.
“We are happy to partner with Tata Power for taking the first step in developing ubiquitous EV charging infrastructure in India. This partnership is an important milestone in our journey to offer complete ecosystem solutions and offer peace of mind to our customers. We remain committed to the sustainable mobility mission and will continue to work towards bringing aspirational e-mobility solutions for the customers, leading the drive towards faster adoption of electric vehicles in the country,” Guenter Butschek, CEO and MD of Tata Motors Ltd, said.
Tata Power’s current EV infrastructure presence in Mumbai is 42 charging points and its mobility infrastructure footprint is in multiple cities, including Hyderabad, Bangalore and Delhi with a total of 85 charging points set up across various usage scenarios. The company has signed landmark MoUs for setting up commercial scale EV charging stations at HPCL, IOCL, and IGL retail outlets. The company also partnered with Tata Motors earlier to support Maharashtra government’s vision of promoting e-mobility in the state by setting up public EV charging stations.
The only EV currently offered by Tata is the Tigor EV, which is on sale for commercial uses only. It is expected to go on sale to private owners soon with an improved range of around 200km. Tata is expected to offer the AltrozEV or Nexon EV next. However, there will likely be a considerable wait for that one as one of them is expected around mid-2020.
