Delhi to have 100 more EV charging stations in two months: Kejriwal

The Chief Minister claimed that Delhi has emerged as the first State where EV adoption rates have reached double digits.

NEW DELHI, Oct 23: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has announced that Delhi will have 100 more charging stations for electric vehicles in the next two months.

Kejriwal inaugurated 11 charging stations on Tuesday. The Chief Minister said the stations will also have battery exchange points. The inaugural event was held at the Indraprastha Metro parking area, one of the 11 locations.

"Earlier, battery swapping points and charging stations were different but these have now been clubbed together. These 11 stations have 73 charging points and 12 swapping stations. In the next two months, Delhi will get 100 charging stations," he said. These will have 900 charging points and 103 swapping stations operational in two months.

Consumers will be charged at the rate of Rs 3 per unit of electricity. The running cost will be barely 7 paise/km for two-wheelers, 8 paise/km for three-wheelers and 33 paise/km for four-wheelers.

The Government has provided land at concessional rates and electrical infrastructure of up to 100kW to set up the new 100 charging stations.

The 11 charging stations have been set up at the parking lots of Indraprastha, Subhas Nagar, Vasant Vihar, Dwarka Mor, Sarita Vihar, Mohan Estate, Harkesh Nagar Okhla, Hauz Khas Metro stations, Kair and Shadipur depots, and the parking area near Star City Mall in Mayur Vihar. The charging points have been set up at public spots like malls, theatres, RWAs and office premises.

Delhi had launched its EV policy in August 2020. "Under the EV policy, we had set a target to ensure 25% of all vehicles purchased in Delhi by 2024 will be EVs; we have already achieved 10% of that target in two years since the policy was launched,” Kejriwal said. In the city, 70,000 electric vehicles were purchased in the last two years.

“In the last two years, Delhi has emerged as the first state where EV adoption rates have reached double digits," Kejriwal said. Delhi currently has 2,900 public charging points and 250 battery swapping stations.
