The Magenta Group has inaugurated what is claimed to be ‘India’s largest public EV charging station’. The facility is located in Navi Mumbai and will be open to the public 24×7. It will cater to all types of electric vehicles, including 2-wheelers, 3-wheelers and 4-wheelers.
The facility houses a total of 21 EV chargers, out of which 4 are 15 to 50 kW DC fast chargers while the rest are 3.5 to 7.5 kW AC chargers. It is said that the fast chargers can fully charge an EV from 0-100% in about 45 minutes. Parking bays have been provided for those using the slow AC chargers, where customers can leave their vehicles overnight.
Customers can access the chargers using the ChargeGrid mobile app, which has features such as an online remote monitoring system and an automated payment gateway.
