Consumer electronics major Panasonic India Monday said it has set up an EV charging station at power distribution company BSES Yamuna Power’s office here.
The newly launched charging station will reduce the charge time significantly for lithium-ion battery powered electric vehicles, it said.
Built in compliance with the BharatEV AC001 standards released by DHI, Panasonic’s smart AC charging station comes equipped with 10KW power and can charge up to three electric vehicles simultaneously. The newly launched charging station also reduces the charge time significantly for lithium ion battery powered electric vehicles, almost 3 times faster than the conventional Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) Batteries.
With this association, Panasonic said, it aims to strengthen the partnership with one of the progressive electric distribution companies and scale it up in the future.
The pilot facility inaugurated is state of the art and comes with key advantages such as enforcing the authorized charging, automated revenue collection understanding of the charging behaviour and pattern, real time charging data, app based control and automated payment mechanism etc. apart from being the most reliable and rugged product in the market.
Manish Sharma, President & CEO Panasonic India says, “As the country ushers into this new age of transport, we are focusing on renewable and sustainable solutions that can help us realize our vision of “A Better Life, A Better World”. With government giving impetus to adoption of electric vehicles and aiming to switch to all electric cars until 2030, it is essential to contribute meaningfully to the initiative. As a diversified technology company, we will continue to introduce products that can help achieve this goal.”
Jitendra Nalwaya, Head Clean and Sustainable Technology, BSES Yamuna says, “It is proactively involved in the new developments in the energy space such as electric vehicles and it gives us immense pleasure to associate with Panasonic, which shares our objective of promoting the use of electric vehicles. This association is a step towards the larger goal of making efforts for sustainable development.”
