The nine new locations where the EV charging stations have come up include Matunga, BKC, Bhandup (near LBS Marg), Chembur, Malad (near Link Road), and Carnac Bundar (near Fort and Freeway).
Praveer Sinha, CEO and Managing Director, Tata Power, said, We are committed to making Maharashtra EV ready and in meeting the government's vision of providing green technology solutions. We are happy to partner with Tata Motors to deliver on the Government's and the Group's vision of improving India's carbon footprint and ensure a sustainable future.
