After putting up its first fast charger last month at Gurugram, India, Kia India has now launched its second fast charger at a dealership in Kochi, Kerala. The 240kW charger put in at the Kia dealership in Kochi is the quickest EV charger in the country. It is even faster than the 150kW fast charger put in earlier. The Kia EV6 electric crossover can be charged up to 350kW, and it takes about 18 minutes to go from 10 to 50 percent full. Fast charging cuts down on the time you have to wait at a charging station, which is important for getting people to use electric vehicles. Kia fastest EV charger.

The new fast charger is faster than the one the company put in at Gurugram before, and all EVs that can use the system will be able to use it. Kia India wants to add 15 more 150kW fast chargers in 12 cities across the country.
Kia India’s Chief Sales Officer, Myung-Sik Sohn, said, “This is a big step forward for us as we continue to strengthen our commitment to building EV infrastructure in the country and contributing to India’s mobility growth story.” He also said, “Our journey with EVs in India doesn’t end here. We’re putting in more charging stations at all of our EV dealerships across the country to ensure that our customers don’t have to worry about how long it takes to charge or how far they can go.
Kia India is not only working on setting up a charging network in the country, but it has also thought of an EV portfolio for the country. The Hyundai Kona EV facelift, the Hyundai IONIQ, the Kia Niro EV, and more are likely to be released soon by Kia-Hyundai. The Kia EV6 is a high-end crossover that competes with cars like the BMW i4 and is made by a Korean company.
