MG Motor India Partners with HPCL for EV Infrastructure Enhancement in India

MG Motor India and Hindustan Petroleum to install 50-60kW DC fast chargers at highways and cities

Electric vehicle (EV) sales, including those of MG, Tata, and Mahindra, are increasing in India. Moreover, to support such growth, both the government and private sector are working towards providing sufficient EV resources.

Recently, MG Motor India collaborated with Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (HPCL) to boost EV charging infrastructure in the country. As per the agreement, both organizations will install 50kW/60kW DC fast chargers at significant locations, including highways and metro cities.

Enhancing EV Charging Accessibility

Many EV owners find it difficult to charge their vehicles during long-distance and intracity commutes. Thus, this partnership will increase the EV chargers’ accessibility, offering convenience to EV users.

The official statement indicates that the public-mode network of chargers caters to all EVs compatible with the CCS 2 charging standard. The CCS 2 charger integrates both AC and DC charging into a single plug and socket. Now, that allows for faster and more efficient charging of EVs.

MG customers can access these charging stations through the MyMG App and locate them using the integrated HPCL network discovery tool.

Gaurav Gupta, Chief Growth Officer, MG Motor India, said:

As an early mover in the EV space, MG has been at the forefront of the development of a strong EV ecosystem.

Along with our ecosystem partners, we are working to create a vast network of EV charging stations, in addition to battery recycling & battery second life solutions for the end-to-end sustainability of electric vehicles.

Our partnership with HPCL is another step to expanding the EV charging infrastructure in India.
