Future Expansion Plans

Looking ahead, Hyundai is not stopping here. The company has ambitious plans to further expand its DC charging network to at least 10 new locations by 2024. By 2027, Hyundai aims to install 100 charging stations, in line with its agreement with the Government of Tamil Nadu, announced at the Global Investor Meet in January 2024.

This expansion is a testament to Hyundai’s dedication to fostering a sustainable and accessible EV ecosystem in India, paving the way for a greener future.
