MG Motor India and BPCL install 12 fast EV chargers on Delhi-Jalandhar highway

MG Motor India inaugurated 12 DC fast charging stations for EVs on the Delhi-Jalandhar corridor, in partnership with Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL). The inauguration event took place today at Prem Service Station, Delhi and simultaneously at 11 other stations.

The first MG Motor-BPCL fast-charging highway corridor will have the charging points installed at approximately every 100km on both sides of this busy highway. The strategic partnership between the two companies aims to cover more such major highways across India with EV charging infrastructure this year.

MG ZS EV owners get a preferential experience at BPCL stations as also 10% discounted charging rates. MG ZS EV users will be able to locate the charging station from their in-car dashboard as well as the MyMG App and can make payment through HelloBPCL mobile application.

Gaurav Gupta, CCO, MG Motor India said, “MG has been at the forefront of the development of a strong EV ecosystem since the launch of the ZS EV in 2020. We intend to establish a holistic ecosystem in India to accelerate EV adoption, and the new chargers at the BPCL fuel stations should provide the necessary impetus for people to switch to electric mobility.”

Subhankar Sen, Head Retail Initiatives & Brand, BPCL said “A cleaner planet is better for everyone and decarbonisation is a challenge that requires broad-reaching, multi-faceted solutions and we in BPCL are playing our part by setting up the network of electric vehicle fast charging highway corridors to address the range, discovery, and time anxieties of EV owners. We firmly believe this will hasten the adoption of EVs in the country. Our initiative with MG Motor India is an important initiative under our EV charging strategy and towards our larger objective of achieving our goal of net-zero emissions by 2040.”

Since its inception, MG Motor India has set up its multi-step charging system with AC chargers and DC fast chargers in residential communities and MG showrooms. The carmaker also provides a six-way charging ecosystem to its customers, which includes a free-of-cost AC fast-charger (installed at the customer’s home/office), an extended charging network, a plug-and-charge cable onboard, charge-on-the-go with RSA (Roadside Assistance), and community chargers. Currently, MG has installed more than 8,000 EV chargers across India.
