Ahead of the launch of its electric vehicles in India, Jaguar Land Rover has entered into a partnership with Tata Power to offer end-to-end EV charging solutions. Tata Power will provide installation, management and after-sales support of EV chargers for Jaguar Land Rover across its retail network of 27 outlets in 24 cities and at customers’ residences and/or offices in the country.
Tata Power will provide a range of AC and DC chargers, starting from 7 kW to 50 kW capacity.
Speaking about the partnership, Jaguar Land Rover India President & Managing Director Rohit Suri said, “The partnership with Tata Power will be a tremendous value addition for Jaguar Land Rover customers as it provides a one-stop solution to their charging needs and also provides easy accessibility to the wide network of public charging infrastructure being set up by Tata Power across India. This tie-up is one step forward in creating the right ecosystem enabling a simple and hassle free charging experience for owners of our first Electric Vehicle, the Jaguar I-PACE, which makes its debut in India later this year.”
Tata Power CFO & President-New Business Ramesh Subramanyam said, “As India’s leading integrated player in the EV charging space, we will provide Jaguar Land Rover India’s EV customers with easy, ubiquitous and seamless charging experience at their homes, offices and public places. This partnership is also an endorsement of their faith in us and our ability to deal with the electrified range of vehicles that Jaguar Land Rover will bring into India.”
Last year, Tata Power partnered with Tata Motors to install 300 ‘fast’ EV charging stations by the end of FY2019-20, across Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Bangalore and Hyderabad.
The company has also signed MoUs for setting up commercial-scale EV charging stations at Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited, Indian Oil Corporation Limited and Indraprastha Gas Limited retail outlets.
