MG Motor India inaugurates 1st corporate EV charger in Lucknow
Lucknow, July 4, 2022, MG Motor India today installed and inaugurated the first two corporate chargers at The Centrum Hotel, Lucknow. This is in line with the automaker’s plan to install more charging stations in Lucknow. As a part of the MG Charge initiative, the automaker will install 1000 AC fast chargers at residential localities and corporates across India in 1000 days. The chargers were inaugurated by Shri Daya Shankar Singh, Minister of State, Independent Charge Transport and Mr Rajnish Agarwal, Dealer Principal, MG Lucknow.
The SMART chargers installed are Type 2 chargers, sim-enabled and supported through a sharable Charger Management System. The connected AC charging stations will cater to the residents and visitors of these societies for their EV charging needs, operating 24*7.
Along with its partners and other RWAs, MG will continue to bolster the community charger infrastructure in the future. The brand will also provide end-to-end guidance, coordination, and support for the installation process, saving costs for the selected residential societies and corporates. This will enable societies to become future-ready, go green, and encourage the transition to electric vehicles.
