Default ABB sets up EV fast charging station at Niti Aayog, New Delhi

ABB has installed a fast charging station for electric vehicles (EV) at Niti Aayog in New Delhi. This is the company's first public charging station in India.

ABB sets up EV fast charging station at Niti Aayog, New Delhi-abb-charging-station.jpg

ABB offers three versions of its Terra 53 fast charger in India - Terra 53 CJG, Terra 53 CJ and Terra 53 CT. The charger converts alternating current (AC) from the grid to direct current (DC) to charge EV batteries. The Terra 53 CJG and Terra 53 CT are compatible with EVs that use AC charging. ABB claims that its 50 kW Terra 53 fast charging station can fully charge an EV in 30 minutes.

The Terra 53 fast charging station uses ABB's Ability Connected Services that links it to payment gateways and smart grid systems. It uses cloud-based systems to show users where the next recharging station is located. This is expected to enable users to plan their next stop.

ABB has installed over 6,000 charging stations across 55 countries. The company's fast chargers are being used by Indian and global auto makers to test their vehicles.

Isn't this a bit like buying a can of petrol before one can afford to buy a car or bike?

Nope; this is like someone installing a petrol station in a new area where the petrol car density is increasing.

Didn't the government backtrack on its electric vehicle policy just a few days ago? So why an expensive fast charging station?

Irrespective of what the Govt did and plans to do, Bangalore and Delhi had a healthy population of e2o EVs. So this charging station are going to be useful at least for a few out there and the probable future buyers.

Right. So why not install such charging stations in areas easily accessible to public, rather than at the premises of Niti Aayog, where does not see a single e2o or any other EV being parked? And why demo the unit with a Hyundai Ioniq parked before it, and not an e2o? This must be some new height of hypocrisy.

EVs and Charging stations are always a chicken/egg problem. When companies launch EVs, people crib about lack of charging infrastructure. So atleast this is a good start.
With respect to location of Niti Aayog, I believe a few Tigor EVs supplied by Tata to EESL may be headed for Niti Aayog. That might be the reason for setting up charging station there. If that is the case, we are going to see such charging stations in more Govt offices.

What would be the cost to charge a car by such charging stations.
