The Department of Heavy Industries (DHI) has approved 2,636 EV charging stations across 62 cities of India which include 24 states and union territories (UTs). The approval is carried out under the second phase of the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles (FAME) India program. As a result, the government has received around 106 proposals from public and private entities for the deployment of around 7000 electric vehicle charging stations. Moreover, according to the proposal, 1,633 charging stations are fast charging, and the rest 1,003 are slow charging stations from a total of 2,636 EV charging stations. Kia Motors, a South Korea’s second-largest automobile manufacturer, is likely to invest around US$ 25 billion in the upcoming six years to transform itself into an innovative brand. As a part of this, Kia Motors will build mobility hubs with EV charging stations, maintenance centers, and convenience facilities in major cities where people are very much concerned about the environment and electric cars.
