JSW MG Motor India and Shell India partner to strengthen EV charging infrastructure

JSW MG Motor India customers will be able to leverage Shell’s wide fuel station network across the country for a superior vehicle charging experience.

JSW MG Motor India announced a strategic collaboration with Shell India Markets Private Limited (SIMPL) to enhance public charging infrastructure for electric vehicles (EVs) across India. JSW MG Motor India customers will be able to leverage Shell’s wide fuel station network across the country for a superior vehicle charging experience.

As per the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), Shell India will deploy CCS 50kW and 60kW DC fast chargers at various locations throughout India, bolstering the EV charging network and facilitating long-distance travel for EV users. These chargers will be accessible to MG customers via the MyMG App and Shell’s network discovery tool, ensuring ease of use and convenience.

Gaurav Gupta, Chief Growth Officer, JSW MG Motor India, said “As India’s second-largest EV manufacturer, we aim to enhance the electric vehicle (EV) ownership experience for our customers. Our partnership with Shell India highlights our shared commitment to sustainable mobility and will help accelerate EV adoption across the country. The expansion of infrastructure will make EV fast charging more convenient, accessible and enable EV customers to plan hassle-free long-distance journeys.”

Shell EV Recharge locations provide reliable and ultra-fast charging, with a 98%-99% charger uptime. These locations also offer convenient retail, including fresh food and beverage options. All these factors help enhance the overall customer experience and provide added value and convenience.

Commenting on this partnership, Sanjay Varkey, Director, Shell India Markets Private Limited, said, “Shell India is committed to enhancing the EV charging experience by offering integrated solutions that prioritize convenience, safety, and sustainability. Our dedication to using 100% certified renewable power combined with our ultra-fast and reliable chargers ensures that our customers enjoy a sustainable, hassle-free, and efficient charging experience. Our strategic partnership with JSW MG Motor India aims to promote the widespread adoption of electric vehicles in the country by leveraging digital integration and customer-centric initiatives.”

JSW MG Motor India has been working on the EV ecosystem well before the launch of the MG ZS EV – India’s First Pure Electric Internet SUV. The company has partners working collaboratively on battery recycle and battery second life management and has set up multi-step charging systems with AC chargers and DC fast chargers in residential communities and showrooms. It also provides a 6-way charging ecosystem to customers, which includes a free-of-cost AC fast-charger (installed at the customer’s home/office), an extended charging network, a plug-and-charge cable onboard, charge-on-the-go with roadside assistance, and community chargers. The company has installed around 500 chargers in 500 days in residentials and communities across India, and a total network of over 15,000 charging touchpoints nationwide, including public and home chargers.
