"As we celebrate 28 years of HMIL in India, we are delighted to inaugurate our first ever 180 kW fast public charging station in Chennai. In line with Hyundai's vision of 'Progress for Humanity', we aim to enhance convenience of all EV users, and hence our charging stations can be utilised by any four-wheeler EV user. HMIL envisages to install 100 charging stations across Tamil Nadu, to enhance the EV ecosystem and motivate more customers towards EV adoption across the state," Jae Wan Ryu, Executive Director - Corporate Planning, HMIL, was quoted as saying in the release.

EV owners can access the charging facility on HMIL's own Charger Management System in the myHyundai App, for easy location, navigation and pre-booking of charging slots, making digital payments and remote charging status monitoring.

In addition to the fast public charging station, more than 170 of the charging points currently available in Tamil Nadu are mapped in the "EV Charge" section of myHyundai app for customer convenience. This app is open and accessible to all Hyundai as well as non-Hyundai EV users, the release added.
