Delhi to get 84 fast-charging EV stations by March 2019

According to a media report, state-run Energy Efficiency Services (EESL) plans to set up 84 fast-charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs) in Delhi by end of March 2019. These fast-charging stations will be set up at public parking spaces and high-visibility areas including Khan Market, Yashwant Place and other locations in the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) area.

Users will be able to book a slot and charge their vehicles using the ElectriFi smartphone app. A top-up of fifteen minutes is expected to be enough for a range of 22 km and is expected to cost around Rs. 30. A full charge is expected to take 90 minutes.

Initially, the government plans to set up 15 kW Bharat DC-001 chargers that are compatible with Tata and Mahindra EVs as well as electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers. Later, these are expected to be updated to European CCS and Japan's CHAdeMO standards.
