Jio-bp is setting up robust charging networks for Mahindra's upcoming electric vehicle launches.
Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) and Jio-bp, a joint venture between Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) and bp, are strengthening their existing partnership, with Jio-bp setting up robust charging network for Mahindra’s upcoming e-SUVs launches. The companies signed an MoU last year for exploring the creation of EV products and services, alongside identifying synergies in low-carbon and conventional fuels.
Starting with 16 cities, Jio-bp will install DC fast chargers at M&M dealership network and workshops across the country. With these chargers being open to the public, the partnership will benefit all stakeholders in the EV value chain.
M&M launched its first all-electric C segment SUV at Mahindra Research Valley, Chennai earlier this month. The company also made rapid strides towards electrification by unveiling its Born Electric Vision with a range of electric SUVs to be launched in the country in the next few years. M&M is supplementing the launch of EVs with access to extensive fast-charging infrastructure. To this end, M&M has partnered with Jio-bp to provide EV users with a wide, accessible and convenient fast-charging network.
The RIL and bp joint venture is aggressively expanding its Jio-bp pulse branded EV charging network by setting up charging facilities at multiple touch points within cities and major highways to ensure smooth intra-city and inter-city commutes for EV owners. Through a state-of-the-art digital platform, this partnership envisages rolling out e-mobility solutions across discovery, availability, navigation, and transactions to empower all EV users to seamlessly access the M&M partner charging network.
