Thane plans for 100 e-charging stations, first one to be operational in Jan 2019

Thane, part of the Mumbai metropolitan region, is all-set to get 100 electric charging points for cars as well as two-wheelers to boost the acceptability of electric vehicle sin the region. Thane Municipal Corporation has signed a MoU with Mahindra and Kinetic Electric for infrastructure development with funds provided by the International Finance Company.

The MoU has been signed after two months of deliberation and the TMC has already started scouting for locations to evenly distribute the infrastructure in the ever-growing city. TMC has also planned to share the charging costs to make electric mobility even more lucrative for faster adoptions.

The corporation plans to bear 75 per cent of the electricity cost in 2019, 50 per cent in 2020 and 25 per cent in 2021. With emission norms becoming stricter in 2020 and the promise of electric vehicle launches by quite a few manufacturers, the move seems well-timed. Although the deadline for the 100 e-charging stations hasn’t been declared, it should be completed within three years. The charging stations are also said to offer battery swaps, the technology for which is already being developed.
