Select CITYWALK has partnered with Charge City to install electric vehicle charging stations in its vast premises. With this move, the shopping centre in Saket is looking to support India’s shift to electric mobility and offer customers the facility of charging their electric vehicles as they shop, watch a movie or dine.
Charge City, a Delhi-based EV charging start-up, has tie-ups with global EV charging solution providers. The company will be the charging solution provider to the Select CITYWALK in Saket. These electric vehicle charging stations will be installed and operated by Charge City.
Yogeshwar Sharma, Executive Director, and CEO, Select Infrastructure Pvt Ltd. commented “As India gets on the EV revolution, there is a great need for safe, reliable and accessible charging points across the country. Government of India guidelines are to enable the country for EV with more than 100 stations by 2023, and as a responsible public space, we intend to be part of this revolution. The State and Central Government’s continuous push to boost electric mobility in the country has propelled us to take this step. We are elated to collaborate with Charge City for setting up the EV charging station at the shopping centre. We look forward to partnering with such initiatives for a more sustainable future. This is aligned with our initiative to bring such best practices into our ecosystem and community as well. Now customers can use the facility of charging their EVs while they have a good time at the shopping centre.
Manekdeep Singh Ratra, Co-Founder, Charge City, said: “We are proud to associate with Select CITYWALK for the installation of electric vehicle charging stations. The installation of EV charging points at retail locations is a necessity to drive electric vehicle adoption which is gradually increasing in the country. We believe that our Charge City stations will provide ease to retail customers who own electric vehicles in Delhi NCR. We also hope to create awareness and boost confidence among those looking to shift to the electric mobility revolution.”
In the mall’s multi-level underground parking facility, Charge City has installed two EV Charging Type -2 AC EV Charging points of 22kW and 7.4kW capacities. The charging stations installed by Charge City are manufactured by EO Charging UK, a major supplier to all the leading global automotive brands.
It allows the charging stations installed at Select CITYWALK to be compatible with all battery-electric cars on sale in the country. The charging stations are compatible with the Tata Nexon EV, Tata Tigor EV, Hyundai Kona Electric, Mahindra eVerito, MG ZS EV, Mercedes-Benz EQC, Jaguar I-Pace, Audi e-tron, Audi E-Tron Sportback, and Audi e-tron GT. Additionally, the charging stations will be compatible with future EV models soon to arrive in the Indian market.
Electric Vehicle owners in the country can use the Charge City smartphone app to access the charging stations in the Select CITYWALK multi-level underground parking facility. Furthermore, the app will also provide EV owners access and precise locations to charging stations in other parts of the National Capital Region.
Users looking to use Charge City charging stations need to sign up on the application. Then follow a simple process of scanning a QR code printed on the charger, plug in their vehicle and begin charging. The Charge City app’s integrated payment gateway and e-wallet make it user-friendly. Customers can make payments for their use of the charging station conveniently through the app itself. Users will receive a notification alert on their smartphone once the charging session is complete.
