Tata Motors Partners with Multiple Charge Point Operators to Expand EV Charging Infrastructure

Tata Passenger Electric Mobility (TPEM), a division of Tata Motors, recently announced partnerships with four charge point operators (CPOs) – Chargezone, Glida, Statiq, and Zeon, marking a significant stride in bolstering the electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in India. The collaboration aims to strategically install charging stations at locations frequented by EV owners, effectively addressing accessible charging options.

Through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with these CPOs, TPEM plans to actively support the installation of chargers for EV users in high-traffic areas. Additionally, TPEM intends to share insights with these operators regarding charger usage patterns, facilitating a better understanding of customer needs by enhancing the overall charging experience.

One of the pivotal aspects of this partnership is introducing an intelligent payment gateway using co-branded RFID cards aimed at simplifying payment procedures for Tata EV users. This initiative collaborates with the growing demand for user-friendly payment methods within the EV charging ecosystem.

Balaji Rajan, Chief Strategy Officer at TPEM, emphasized the urgency of EV adoption as a critical solution to tackle urban pollution. Rajan highlighted the pivotal role of convenient and widespread charging infrastructure in expediting the transition to electric mobility. The collaboration between TPEM and these CPOs aims to pave the way for over 10,000 additional charging points across India by the fiscal year 2025.

Rajan further underscored the significance of an open, collaborative approach to establishing a robust nationwide charging ecosystem. Leveraging TPEM’s insights into EV usage patterns and combining them with the innovative charging solutions offered by the partnered CPOs, the initiative seeks to drive significant growth in EV charging infrastructure in the country.

This partnership demonstrates Tata Motors’ commitment to advancing EV infrastructure. It signifies a collective effort towards building an extensive and efficient charging network that aligns with the evolving needs of electric vehicle users in India.
