Delhi/ Ahmedabad, Mumbai 7th July, 2021: Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power company has installed the first-ever Fast DC electric vehicle (EV) Charger at the home to the world’s tallest statue and famous Indian Landmark – Statue of Unity located at Kevadia in Gujarat. The grand statute is of India’s first Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Bharat Ratna Shri Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. The statue symbolises the national, spiritual and historical oneness of our vast country.
The Tata Power EZ Charge (Charging Station) at Kevadia, near the railway station, will become an important pit stop for EV users. EV users can access this charger through awarding-winning Tata Power EZ Charge application. It offers a seamless user interface, making it convenient for all EV owners to locate, navigate, book, charge, pay & check the availability of the nearest e-charging stations in real-time.
According to the announcement made by the Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi on the World Environment Day and the Statue of Unity Area Development and Tourism Governance Authority (SOUADTGA), Kevadia, which houses the world’s tallest Statue of Unity, will become the country’s first electric vehicle city with only electric buses, cars and two-wheelers on roads. The company’s move to set up the charging station will surely support the grand move.
“Visitors coming to the Statue of Unity can now travel in their EV’s without the anxiety of charging their vehicles. We are delighted that Kevadia-home of Statue of Unity is now EV ready with a DC fast charger.
