Hyundai and Tata Power have joined together to improve India's EV charging infrastructure.

As part of the collaboration between Tata Power and Hyundai Motor India, additional 60kWh fast Direct-Current (DC) chargers will be placed alongside the present 7.2kWh Alternating-Current (AC) chargers at 34 Hyundai Electric Vehicle (EV) stores in 29 locations across India.

Furthermore, Tata Power will deliver and install chargers at Hyundai's EV customers' selected site.

The 60kWh DC fast chargers require less charging time than the 7.2kWh AC chargers, which improves the EV ownership experience.

These charging stations will be available to all-electric car users, but Hyundai customers will benefit from lower costs. While the South Korean manufacturer will manage the charging stations' logistics and administration, Tata Power will be in charge of their operation and maintenance. These charging stations will be available via Tata Power's EZ Charge Mobile App, which includes a variety of services such as slot pre-booking.

Following the debut of the Kona EV in 2020, Hyundai intends to deliver its second all-electric product, the Ioniq 5, in October 2022. The electric hatchback will be imported as a Completely Built Up (CBU) unit with two battery packs, a 58kWh battery pack and a 72.6kWh unit, with Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP)-certified ranges of 384km and 481km, respectively. It will most likely be priced comparable to the Volvo XC40 Recharge and its cousin, the Kia EV6.
