The move to set up charging stations comes months before the launch of the company’s first electric sport utility vehicle EZS. MG Motor will be the second mass market vehicle manufacturer, following Hyundai Motor India Ltd, to launch an SUV with an electric powertrain.

Fortum will install 50 KW CCS and Chademo DC fast public charging stations for electric vehicles across showrooms in five cities, the National Capital Region, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad, by September.

The smart chargers can be accessed by an electric vehicle user, having cars compatible with the CCS and Chademo charging standards by registering with Fortum Charge & Drive India through its mobile app, said the company in a press release.

Roadmap ahead
In order to consolidate the brand in India, Morris Garages will launch its electric SUV as its second vehicle. Also, being the largest Chinese vehicle maker, the parent company SAIC Motor Corporation Ltd has the know-how to develop mass-market electric vehicles.

Mint reported that according to Rajiv Chaba, president and managing director, the upcoming launch of the eZs is aligned with the government’s long-term objective to have more electric vehicles on the road in the next few years.
