- Kia India inaugurates India’s fastest ‘150kWh’ EV charger for passenger vehicles in Gurgaon
- First DC fast charger with 150kWh capacity installed at Dhingra Kia, Gurgaon
- Kia India plans to install 15 DC fast chargers at its EV dealerships by August 2022
Kia India has installed India’s first 150kWh EV charging station at its dealership in Gurugram as part of its plan to develop EV infrastructure in the country. The EV maker aims to install 15 more 150kWh DC fast chargers in 12 Indian cities.
The company says that the DC fast charger can charge the EV 6’s 77.6kWh battery from 10-80 percent in less than 42 minutes. Since the Kia EV6 accepts up to 350kWh of DC fast charging, the new charger is a better alternative to the standard 22kWh wall box charger.
The Korean brand recently launched its flagship EV6 electric crossover in India and will sell it through the CBU route, with deliveries slated to begin in September.
