♦ ARAI has developed indigenous technology for EV chargers called AC001. It’s been taken up for manufacturing and promotion by Bharat Electronics.
♦ Charging points will be started by Bharat Electronics, while the parts for EV charger systems like Type 1, Type 2, CCS & CHAdeMO will be manufactured locally.
♦ Apart from that, ARAI is fixing its new center in Takwe because ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistant System) vehicles and cylinder testing centers require dedicated space.
♦ ARAI will make investments of around Rs 500 crore in a phased manner within the next 3-4 years to set up this center.
♦ ARAI is in talks with Telangana and Kerala to line up such centers.
♦ The cost of the EV chargers is predicted to be between Rs 50000 to Rs 60000.
♦ ARAI signed a deal with Bharat Electronics Limited on EV chargers. According to the deal, ARAI will provide the actual know-how of the costs while Bharat Electronics will manufacture them.
