Tata Power and Zoomcar team up to promote electric vehicles in India
On Thursday, Zoomcar and Tata Power EV Charging Solutions Ltd (TPEVCSL) announced that they had signed a contract to encourage the use of electric vehicles in India. In a statement, Tata Power promised to provide a “seamless” and convenient charging experience at all of their stations.
In its EZ Charge stations, Tata Power offers EV charging stations. In 350 cities, including numerous highways, it has over 50,000 home chargers, 4370 public and semi-public charging stations, and 250 bus-charging stations. It plans to install 25,000 charging stations across India by 2028.
Tata Power introduced an RFID card in July that enables EV owners to start charging just tapping the card on an EZ charger anywhere in the nation.
The partnership, according to the company’s statement, intends to promote Tata Power’s EZ Charge points on the Zoomcar platform and will benefit current and prospective EV owners in addition to Zoomcar’s current clients.
Zoomcar is a car-sharing marketplace with over 20,000 cars.
“Valuable insights on Tata Power’s extensive network of EZ Charge points all across the country will provide these customers with easy access to streamline the EV charging process and address the challenges often associated with using the charging infrastructure. This will encourage more people to list their EVs on Zoomcar’s platform and potential customers to opt for them,” it said.
“Our car-sharing platform is perfectly suited for electric vehicles, and we expect to grow 50 per cent of our platform by 2025. This mutual partnership is poised to create a comprehensive ecosystem that fulfils the evolving needs of EV enthusiasts,” said Greg Moran, co-founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of Zoomcar. “As India’s leading EV charging infrastructure provider, we are constantly collaborating with industry partners such as Zoomcar to develop a technologically advanced and robust EV ecosystem in the country,” added Praveer Sinha, CEO and managing director (MD), Tata Power.
