AC “Slow” Charging
Slow AC charging is the most common method of charging electric vehicles.
An EVSE supplies AC current to the vehicle’s onboard charger which in turn converts the AC power to DC allowing the battery to be charged.
So when you charge your Mahindra e2o or the e2o plus electric car or a Lithium-Ion based e-Scooter using a 15 Amp socket or a smart charger, then you are charging you are – AC charging your EV.
Under AC Charging there are 2 categories of charging
DC fast chargers are designed for quick, convenient charging of all electric vehicle models, including those equipped with high voltage battery systems. The Terra’s compact size makes it perfect for public and fleet use, while its modularity allows an increase of charging power up to 180 kW and serve up to three electric vehicles at the same time.
MG Motor India and Tata Power have inaugurated the first superfast charging EV station in Nagpur, Maharashtra. The move is part of the partnership to further strengthen the electric vehicle ecosystem in the country, which will see the deployment of 50kW DC superfast charging stations across the country.
The new public EV charging station can be accessed by all vehicles compatible with CCS/ CHAdeMO fast-charging standards and is in line with the carmaker’s commitment to provide a 5-way charging ecosystem. Using the fast charger, the MG ZS EV can be charged up to 80% in 50 minutes at the facility.
