Jio-BP is a joint Indian venture for the fuel and mobility branch of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) and BP. They have now partnered up with TVS Motor Company. The trio announced that they are working to create a robust public EV charging infrastructure for electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers in the country with the Jio-BP network as the backbone.
As a result of this partnership, the customers of TVS electric vehicles will get access to the widespread charging network of Jio-BP, which has been expanding its charging centers across the country. The current Jio-BP charging stations are open to other EV vehicles and will stay that way for the near future. The partnership is also exploring options for creating a regular AC charging network and a DC fast-charging network.
The Jio-BP partnership is promising to provide vast and reliable charging infrastructure to their customers and create seamless solutions like the partnership with TVS to offer a world-class charging infrastructure across the country, which could further open up more partners. The Jio-BP JV is currently operating EV charging and swapping stations under the brand Jio-BP Pulse.
