One of the biggest fears for anyone planning on getting an Electric Vehicle is recharging. After all, the current infrastructure for fuel pumps is so widespread and reliable that imagining a more convenient solution is difficult. A charging station at your residence is a good idea, but it's not for everyone. So how do you recharge when you're on the go?
What's revolutionary about EVs is that the technology has finally evolved to a point that if you need to recharge, all you need is a standard 3 pin plug point! If you're heading to a cafe to work on a cozy afternoon, all you need is a few hours to top up; so while you refill, your ride recharges. This becomes even more convenient with EVs like the TVS iQube ST, which comes with fast charging capabilities. That means you can get up to 80% in around 2 and a half hours!
The electric equivalent of a fuel pump is becoming an increasingly popular alternative. Thanks to government impetus, charging stations are popping up all over major metropolitan cities. The increasing push to make India an electric vehicle based economy has also been aided by these charging stations that are planned both by the government as well as in partnership with private players. This will ensure a reliable and widespread charging network in the near future.
How to find charging stations?
While a simple Google search should tell you where your nearest public charging station is, your EV company might also have its own proprietary charging stations. With the TVS iQube app, you can navigate to any of your nearest TVS iQube dealership to utilize their free to use charging stations.
Charging on the go is becoming consistently easier. While it still is a work in progress, a dedicated focus on developing a charging ecosystem by several parties will soon enable a much more convenient charging solution on-the-go. With the world shifting towards cleaner transportation, the biggest drawbacks of owning an EV are being done away with. Not only has it become easier to top up an electric vehicle, electric two wheelers like the TVS iQube offers a range per charge of 100 kilometres; needing you to have much lesser requirement of frequent charging. As we step into the future, things are getting smartly simple. Are you ready to hop on for the ride?
