    TVS to develop EV charging infrastructure with Convergence Energy

    The TVS Motor Company and Convergence Energy Services Ltd. (CESL) have announced a strategic partnership to set up EV charging stations across India.

    • Deal inked on World Environment Day

    • Public charging infrastructure for the TVS iQube electric

    • TVS iQube to be available in 20 cities by FY 2021-22

    As part of the MoU, TVS and CESL plan to set up a network of charging stations for the TVS’ iQube electric scooter, in 20 cities. This will be in addition to the home charging and TVS dealership charging infrastructure that iQube owners currently use to charge their EV. We’ve reached out to TVS to know the exact timeline of their charging infrastructure plan and which cities are part of the list. We shall update this when we get the information.

    TVS also plans to launch the iQube electric in 20 cities, by the end of FY 2021-22. At present, the iQube is available in Bangalore and Delhi, at Rs 1.20 lakh and Rs 1.09 lakh (ex-showroom), respectively. 

    TVS says that expanding the charging infrastructure will boost electric vehicle adoption in India. In fact, major players such as Ather Energy, Hero-Gogoro and Ola Electric are also in the process of installing or expanding their respective charging infrastructures to encourage EV adoption in India.

    To reiterate, the TVS iQube is powered by a 4.4kW electric motor that propels the scooter to a claimed top speed of 78kph. TVS claims the iQube can cover 75km on a full charge and a 0-40kph time of 4.2 seconds. The scooter has two riding modes – economy and power. The battery on the iQube is not removable.
