    Jaguar Land Rover partners with Tata Power for EV charging infrastructure

    Before introducing its electric vehicle range in the country, Jaguar Land Rover India has started building an EV charging infrastructure and announced its partnership with Tata Power to offer end-to-end EV charging solutions. The carmaker’s first EV to launch in India will be the Jaguar I-Pace SUV, which will arrive in showrooms in the second half of 2020. 

    Under this partnership, Tata Power will install charging stations across JLR’s retail network of 27 outlets in 24 cities and at customer’s residence and/or office. Tata Power will provide AC and DC chargers ranging across the 7-50kW capacity. The company will also provide aftersales-related support services.

    Speaking on the occasion, Rohit Suri, president and managing director, Jaguar Land Rover India, said, “The partnership with Tata Power will be a tremendous value addition for Jaguar Land Rover customers, as it provides a one-stop solution to their charging needs and also provides easy accessibility to the wide network of public charging infrastructure being set up by Tata Power across India. This tie-up is one step forward in creating the right ecosystem enabling a simple and hassle free charging experience for owners of our first Electric Vehicle, the Jaguar I-Pace, which makes its debut in India later this year.”

    Following the Jaguar I-Pace, the manufacturer will also be introducing other battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) and even plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) in India, soon. In addition to Jaguar Land Rover, Tata Power also has a tie-up with Tata Motors to provide 300 EV-charging stations across five major Indian cities – Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Bengaluru and Hyderabad – by the end of FY2020. The first seven fast-chargers (15kW DC units)  from this partnership have already been installed at Tata Motors dealerships in and around Pune.
