India’s largest electric vehicle (EV) charging station with a capacity of 100 charging points for 4 wheelers, was opened on Friday at Delhi-Jaipur National Highway in Gurugram.
Previously, India’s largest EV charging station was situated in Navi Mumbai with 16 AC & 4 DC charging ports for EVs.
“This station is now open with 96 chargers for technical inspection for various ‘Certification Compliance’ and ‘Safety Standards’ laid two week ago by Power Ministry, Govt of India and which also opened the doors for offering government land to government or public agencies and private entities for setting up charging stations on a revenue-sharing basis,” the company said in a statement.
