Hyundai Motor India and Shell India Markets Private Limited (SIMPL) have joined together to improve the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles (EVs) in India. This agreement between Hyundai India and Shell India has the purpose to install DC quick chargers throughout all 36 EV stores in the country. This is a significant step in the direction of advertising and marketing the adoption of electric powered automobiles in India. If it is at all practicable, Shell India will also investigate the possibility of installing DC 120 kW Rapid Chargers in sellers rather than DC 60 kW Speedy Chargers.

In light of the rapidly expanding market for electric vehicles in India, the establishment of a reliable network of charging stations has emerged as a pressing necessity in recent times. In light of this fact, the automaker is committed to expanding the public charging community of electric vehicle quick chargers. This will make it significantly simpler for owners of electric vehicles to charge their vehicles while they are travelling. Hyundai intends to expedite the growth of the electric vehicle charging ecosystem through the formation of a partnership with Shell India, a global energy organisation.

Sanjay Varkey, Director of Shell India, and Jae Wan Ryu, Executive Director of Hyundai India, both attended the event.

At the headquarters of HMIL in Gurugram, Haryana, the memorandum of arrangement between Hyundai India and Shell India was signed in the presence of Jae Wan Ryu, Executive Director of Hyundai Motor India Constrained, and Sanjay Varkey, Director of Shell India Marketplaces Non-public Confidential. The purpose of the strategic alliance is to expedite the development of electric vehicle charging stations in India. As part of the terms of the settlement, customers who charge their electric vehicles at any one of Hyundai’s many electric vehicle dealerships will be eligible for special discounts on the cost of charging their vehicles.

The Hyundai Kona is the first electric vehicle to be offered by the automaker in the Indian market.

Unsoo Kim, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Hyundai Motor India, issued the following statement in response to the news: “We are happy to announce our partnership with Shell India to even further develop Hyundai’s electric vehicle (EV) ecosystem in India and improve our battery electric vehicle (BEV) charging community. To achieve the national objective of carbon neutrality and accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles by consumers, the formation of these kinds of strategic alliances is important. This agreement will energise the nation’s mission to increase the use of electric mobility by providing infrastructure for charging electric vehicles at HMIL dealerships.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 is the second electric vehicle that the automaker has presented, and it is built in India.

At the present time, Hyundai has a network of 72 EV Dealers spread out throughout 45 different metropolitan areas. The first stage of the process of installing community electric vehicle charging stations at Hyundai’s electric vehicle dealerships has already been finished. The next phase of the project, which will be carried out in conjunction with Shell India and will aim to construct DC 60/120 kW quickly charging stations throughout an additional 36 dealerships, has begun. Not only does the expansion of the electric vehicle charging infrastructure in India provide Hyundai EV with new business opportunities, but it also adds to the overall expansion of the electric vehicle and truck industry. The concern about the vehicle’s range, which is a typical issue among people who are considering purchasing an electric vehicle, can be alleviated when more charging stations become readily available. The Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Hyundai Kona Electric powered are both part of Hyundai’s current lineup of electric vehicles (EVs).
