Keeping up with this commitment, this World EV Day, Radisson Hotel Group celebrates the inauguration of its Electric Vehicle (EV) chargers in partnership with SunFuel at the Radisson Blu Plaza Delhi International Airport. This is an extension of the Group’s partnership with SunFuel to EV-enable its portfolio of 100+ hotels across South Asia.
The hospitality sector at large has been keen to encourage the use of EVs among travellers especially given the rise of road travel to explore nearby destinations. Given RHG’s widely spread domestic network and presence in 60+ locations across India, it is a significant enabler for road travel with one hotel every four hours. Thus, the Group has pledged to provide optimal charging infrastructure typology across all hotels in India with the intent to reduce range anxiety amongst consumers.
This infrastructure will include SunFuel-designed 22 KWh Level 2 AC Chargers with technology from Siemens. These are the fastest AC Chargers possible today which makes this infrastructure future-proof. The initiative aims to reduce range anxiety among tourists, particularly avid travellers exploring the length and breadth of the country in their electric vehicles. The group is proactively creating a visible EV-charging infrastructure that will catalyse behaviour modification among non-EV users to choose an electric car for their next purchase.
