Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPCL) has launched 19 electric vehicle Fast-Charging Corridors at 110 fuel stations along 15 highways in Karnataka, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu. 

The government-owned oil and gas company has launched 3 corridors with 19 fuel stations in Kerala, 6 Corridors with 33 fuel stations in Karnataka, and 10 corridors with 58 fuel stations in Tamil Nadu.

So far, BPCL has converted 21 Highways into electric corridors, and going forward, by March 2023, 200 highways will be covered with Electric Vehicle Fast Chargers across India, to support and accelerate the EV growth in the country.

These Fast EV Charging Corridors were inaugurated by P.S. Ravi, Executive Director Incharge (Retail) in presence of Pushp Kumar Nayar, Head Retail South, Kannabiran D. State Head (Retail) Kerala, Subhankar Sen, Chief General Manager (Retail Initiative & Brand) at Ernakulam, Kerala.

"It takes just 30 minutes to charge an EV, giving the driving range of up to 125 kilometers at our Fuel Stations, therefore we have maintained the distance within 100 kilometers between the two charging stations, said Pushp Kumar Nayar, Head Retail South at the launch.

Speaking at the launch, P.S. Ravi, Executive Director Incharge (Retail), BPCL said, "The fast chargers are easy to use.
