These charging facility would facilitate electric car owners to charge their cars at any time safely and conveniently.

Currently, in India customers have a limited choice of electric cars which includes the Mahindra e2o and the Mahindra eVerito. In future, it is expected that Tesla and Nissan will bring in their electric vehicles to India as well. The likes of Mahindra, Tata Motors and Maruti Suzuki are focusing heavily on developing battery powered products for the country.
