Hyundai Motor India is partnering with Shell India to install 60 kW DC Fast Chargers across 36 of its EV Dealerships in India. The collaboration with Shell India is a part of Hyundai’s EV charging infrastructure expansion plan for providing customer centric solution towards a cleaner and greener future through adoption of environment friendly battery electric vehicles.
Shell India will also consider installing DC 120 kW Fast Charger in dealers instead of DC 60 kW Fast charges if feasible.
The strategic partnership aims to increase the expansion of charging infrastructure for EVs in India.
Hyundai currently has an existing network of 72-EV Dealers in 45-cities. Phase-1 for establishment of public EV charging facility across EV dealerships of Hyundai was concluded in the past. Phase-2, has been initiated with Shell India across 36-additional dealerships for installation of DC 60/120 kW fast chargers, which will deliver a hassle-free, reliable, fast & safe charging experience through innovative, customer centric hardware solutions.
The collaboration enables the customer value proposition of fast charging, green energy and a 24×7 customer support, creating a new benchmark in customer experience in this transformational drive towards clean mobility.
Hyundai in its commitment towards a sustainable future has invested and built its own Charger Management Systems (CMS), which is an open platform and enables EV customers (regardless of brand) to avail seamless EV charging experience. With this collaboration, Shell’s network of chargers would also be available in Hyundai CMS along with Hyundai’s own chargers & those from 3rd party Charge Point Operators. Advanced functions like, Locate, Navigate & Pay digitally on CMS, make this platform a unique, industry leading initiative by any auto manufacturer for facilitation of EV charging in India.
