Top 5 EV Recharge Station Locator Apps for India

With the rise in popularity of electric vehicles (EV), many counties have now begun encouraging them as a more sustainable alternative to traditionally fueled modes of transport. A land that is constantly evolving and adapting to change, India, too, has incorporated electric vehicles into its transportation system. The Government of India, as well as many state governments, have granted subsidies in order to propel EV acceptance and adoption in the country. One of the primary reasons people are hesitant of EVs is the relatively limited availability of charging stations. Although many electric vehicle producers have taken up the task of installing EV charging stations across the nation, another challenge that deters potential buyers is the inability to access resources. Despite many EV charging stations having already been installed across India, many drivers are often unable to find one near them when in a pinch. However, there are numerous apps available online that can help users find the nearest EV charging station. Listed below are our top picks for EV charging station locator apps in India.
