Delhi CM Kejriwal Launches 11 New EV Charging Stations


New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal inaugurated 11 electric vehicle charging stations in the national capital on Tuesday and 100 more will come up in next two months.

The 11 EV stations launched today will have 73 charging points and 12 swapping points while the 100 EV stations that are to be set up in the next two months will have a total of 900 charging points and 103 swapping stations.

Kejriwal said that 70 per cent of the 11 new charging stations will be installed in metro sites so that people can plug in and leave their vehicles on charging.

In the last two years, as many as 70, 000 EVs have been bought in Delhi. The city has left behind global cities like New York and California in the conversion of vehicles to EVs. The major role in this change has been in charging stations, the CM said.
