The first public e-vehicle (EV) charging station in Delhi was inaugurated on Saturday. The e-vehicle charging-station is set-up under a partnership between power discom BYPL and EV Motors India Private Limited.
The station can charge four vehicles at a time, in 45 to 90 minutes, depending on the vehicle type, a Delhi government statement said.
