India`s biggest electric vehicle (EV) charging station with a capability of 121 charging points for four-wheelers, has been opened in Sector 86. With this EV station, the city has now the most important electric powered automobile charging stations within the country.

The first EV station was opened in January with a capability of one hundred charging factors for four-wheelers in Sector fifty-two of Gurugram.
