MG Motor India partners BPCL for EV charging infrastructure

MG Motor India has entered into a partnership with Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPCL) to expand its EV charging infrastructure. The move makes MG Motor India one of the first passenger car companies to tie up with the PSU to promote the adoption of green mobility.

As per the understanding, both partners will install EV chargers across highways and within cities by combining their individual expertise to strategically identify sites, garner consumer insights, devise loyalty programs, and create technology to manage the charging systems.

Rajeev Chaba, president and MD, MG Motor India, said, “The key to a successful transition to electric mobility is a robust EV ecosystem. Along with our ecosystem partners, we are working to create a vast network of EV charging stations, in addition to battery recycling and battery second life solutions for end-to-end sustainability for electric vehicles. Our customers also benefit from the unique 6-way charging ecosystem that makes using an EV every day much easier.”

Arun Kumar Singh, chairman and MD, BPCL said, “Sustainable consumption is the present and future as we move into the era of mass electric mobility. BPCL is at the forefront of addressing the three big anxieties amongst electric vehicle owners (range anxiety, time anxiety, and discovery anxiety) in order to build consumer confidence in EVs.”

BPCL is setting up fast-charging corridors across major highways inter-connecting major cities, and economic hubs and aims to have a network of 7,000 conveniently located fast-charging stations in the country in the next 2-3 years. These fast-charging stations will come with a host of customer amenities viz, restrooms, micro-ATMs, etc.
