CHARGE ZONE Announces Major Rollout of Supercharging Network for Electric Vehicles, to invest US$360m over the next four years


CHARGE ZONE, India’s fastest-growing electric vehicle (EV) charging network, announces a significant expansion of its supercharging infrastructure to cater to electric buses, trucks, and personal mobility vehicles nationwide. In the current fiscal year, CHARGE ZONE plans to establish 25 new supercharging stations with the target of 500 such stations of capacity ranging from 360KW to 1.2MW, marking a substantial increase from the current stations and boosting the company’s charging capacity by a ratio of 6:1 compared to previous fast charging models.

“Our new supercharging network marks a significant step towards a sustainable and electrified future integrated with micro-grids comprising of Solar PV and energy storage,” affirmed Mr. Kartikey Hariyani, Founder and CEO of CHARGE ZONE. “By pushing the boundaries of EV super-charging technology, we aim to deliver innovative solutions across industries.”

The selected routes for the expansion were meticulously chosen based on geographical location, traffic volume, land availability, and grid connectivity. These routes include highways across Southern and Western zones in India including Bangalore-Chennai, Bangalore-Hyderabad, Bangalore-Pune-Mumbai, Mumbai-Ahmedabad amongst others.

Reflecting on the trial results, Mr. Kartikey Hariyani stated, “Our six-months pilot roll out of the supercharging network yielded remarkable results with the strong utilization by inter-city electric cars and electric buses as the prime customers.  We received excellent customer feedback, with power utilization exceeding previous levels and significant traffic volumes recorded. During the first pilot of commercial rollout, we covered nearly 1500 kilometers, showcasing the network’s efficiency. The average charging time at the new supercharging stations is between 15 to 20 minutes, significantly shorter than the 45 minutes  required at fast DC charging  stations, which enhances user convenience and process efficiency.”

Continuing, Mr. Kartikey Hariyani emphasized, “This rollout signifies a significant milestone in our journey towards sustainable transportation. By expanding our supercharging network, we not only meet current EV user needs but also pave the way for a cleaner, greener future. Our commitment to renewable energy and strategic partnerships ensures that our infrastructure remains robust, reliable, and ahead of the curve for electric cars as well as electric buses and trucks.”

To support sustainable energy use, CHARGE ZONE’s supercharging stations will utilize renewable sources. The company anticipates this network will significantly influence the adoption of electric buses, trucks, and personal mobility vehicles, enhancing range, reliability, efficiency, and cost savings. Integrated solar rooftops and battery storage ensure a green power supply, extending sustainability efforts to transforming national highways into renewable corridors. Utilizing signage, PlugShare, Google Maps, and the CHARGE ZONE app will ensure widespread awareness and utilization.

Over the next six months, CHARGE ZONE is dedicated to expanding its reach by increasing the number of stations and deploying superchargers to boost charging speed for all types of 4W EVs. The company’s intercity charging strategy includes strategically placing stations, meticulous route planning, and offering high-speed capabilities, ensuring a seamless experience with mobile app integration and multiple payment options. Safety remains paramount with 24/7 surveillance and emergency support, complemented by efficient maintenance through remote monitoring and regular inspections.

CHARGE ZONE continues to pursue its  ambitious goal to electrify 150,000 kilometers of highways, targeting key routes, installing 1000 stations, and optimizing based on user feedback. Supported by partnerships with government bodies and private entities like AUDI, GENTARI, HYUNDAI, MERCEDES BENZ, MG Motors, TATA Motors , and others, CHARGE ZONE ensures station reliability through maintenance schedules, remote monitoring, customer support, and upgrades.


CHARGE ZONE  is one of few companies globally, with an integrated technology and engineering capabilities to build EV Charging Networks, specializing in high-speed charging networks for electric buses/trucks and electric cars across the enterprise and the retail network on both dedicated and opportunity-based charging using smart-grid networks. Headquartered at Vadodara (Gujarat, India), CHARGE ZONE has spearheaded the fast-charging infrastructure with indigenous development of the technology of mobile-app and CMS with firmware/web-socket cloud-based computing for super-fast EV charging with more than 4000+ points across 480+ locations in India and UAE. CHARGE ZONE is on a green mission to establish one million charging points across important markets of EVs in India for all 4W categories of vehicles including cars, buses and trucks.
