The partnership between Tata Motors and Tata Power is to support the Maharashtra Government’s vision of promoting e-mobility in the State by setting up public EV charging stations. Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Bengaluru and Hyderabad are the five key metros that Tata Motors and Tata Power will set up electric charging stations for their EVs. The partnership aims to have 300 charging stations set up by the end of FY20 and a total of 500 in the next two years. The initiative was inaugurated with the first seven stations being set up in Pune on 2 August. The next two months should see 45 more stations set up in four of the other cities.
