In a release issued today, Tata Power announced it had installed a DC fast electric vehicle (EV) charger at Kevadia—a famous tourist location in Gujarat housing the world’s tallest statue, the Statue of Unity. The charging point is located near the Kevadia railway station.
EV users can access the charging station Tata Power EZ Charge app. The app offers a seamless user interface, making it convenient for EV owners to locate, navigate, book, charge, pay, and check the availability of the nearest e-charging stations in real time.
On World Environment Day, India’s prime minister Narendra Modi had recently declared Kevadia would become the country’s first electric vehicle city with only electric buses, cars, and two-wheelers on roads. Tata Power’s initiative is in sync with the Government’s move to create the country’s first ‘only electric vehicle city’ at Kevadia.
“Visitors coming to the Statue of Unity can now travel in their EVs without the anxiety of charging their vehicles…Tourists coming from Surat, Vadodara, Ahmedabad, and other cities can now make the journey in their electric cars without worry. We are committed to installing EV charging points at important highway locations and similar tourist destinations,” said Sandeep Bangia, head–EV Charging, Home Automation and ESCO, Tata Power.
Tata Power is the only Indian Power utility that owns an expansive network of over 4,000 home chargers and over 500 public chargers in 102 cities across India. The company is present across all segments of the EV eco-system—public charging, captive charging, home and workplace charging, and ultra-rapid chargers up to 240kW for buses.
