Kia India, today officially opened India's quickest charger for passenger cars at its showroom in Gurgaon. This 150 kWh DC fast charger is set up at Dhingra Kia in Gurgaon. This project is anticipated to give all EV owners access to charging options, keeping with the company's commitment to providing top-notch mobility solutions.

With this, Kia India has started the process of creating an EV infrastructure in the nation. This year, more charging stations will be installed at all of its EV stores. With 150kWh of electricity, this rapid charger can complete 10-80 percent of the charging process in less than 42 minutes (may vary depending on the vehicle). Customers may access charging at the Gurgaon dealership by paying for usage.

The Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) platform-based Kia EV6 utilizes Kia's "Opposites United" design concept, and Kia India just introduced it in India. With a 528 km range on a full charge, the Kia EV6 alleviates range anxiety. To give its customers a hassle-free ownership experience, Kia India is committed to providing sustainable mobility solutions and is working to build charging infrastructure across the nation.

Speaking on the occasion, Myung-sik Sohn, Chief Sales Officer, Kia India said, "We started with the ambition of making EV ownership aspirational and launched our global best EV – the Kia EV6 in India, earlier this year. To take things further, we're now incredibly excited to inaugurate the first DC fast charger for passenger vehicles with 150 kWh charging capacity, playing our role in India's EV growth story. At Kia India, it is our constant endeavour to provide a superior customer experience and we believe that such fast-charging solutions will take away issues of range anxiety & charging time that EV owners face. We have begun the journey of providing an unparalleled EV experience across all our EV dealerships in the country and here, we will be able to cater to the charging requirements of EVs from other OEMs as well. We shall be installing a total of 15 such chargers across 12 cities by August, 2022, and are hopeful that such small steps will go a long way in fostering EV adoption in the country. "
