Increasing accessibility to EV charging
Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd. and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) have signed an MOU to collaborate on public charging stations across India. (TPEM), known for pioneering India’s electric vehicle revolution, has signed an MOU with TPEM. To set up chargers at locations often visited by Tata EV owners, BPCL and TPEM are partnering to leverage BPCL’s fuel station network and TPEM’s insight into Tata EVs. The company will also collect data on charger usage to improve customer service.
The goal of this agreement between TPEM and BPCL is to provide EV owners with a better overall experience. Moreover, the two companies are exploring the possibility of launching a co-branded RFID card for Tata EV users to make payments easier and to encourage more people to adopt electric vehicles.
By integrating strategy, investments, and environmental goals, BPCL maintains a nationwide network of more than 21,000 fuel stations. According to BPCL, 7,000 electric vehicle charging stations will be installed by the end of next year. A fast charging station is located approximately every 100 kilometers on both sides of major highways across the nation as part of BPCL’s Electric Vehicle Fast Charging Highway Corridors. This initiative is designed to alleviate the concerns of electric vehicle owners regarding range. More than 30,000 kilometers of corridors provide enhanced accessibility and convenience to EVs along various highways.
BPCL’s Executive Director In Charge of Retail, Santosh Kumar, stated that the company is committed to aligning its operations with the country’s vision for zero carbon emissions by 2040. A comprehensive decarbonization strategy has been developed by BPCL to support and prioritize sustainable initiatives, including the conversion of 7000 conventional retail outlets into energy stations. Fast charging stations have already been set up on highways by BPCL. With TPEM, we believe we can take BPCL’s EV game to the next level.” EV is a field of collaboration.
Over 71% of the Indian electric passenger vehicle market is held by TPEM. TPEM continues to lead the charge in India’s electric mobility revolution with more than 115,000 Tata electric vehicles on Indian roads, of which 75% are used as primary vehicles.
Indian cities can achieve significantly better air quality if electric vehicles are adopted, said Shailesh Chandra, Managing Director of Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd., electric vehicles will be adopted more rapidly in India when reliable and widespread charging infrastructure is available. They are delighted to announce their strategic collaboration with BPCL, which aims to accelerate India’s e-mobility journey in line with their commitment to developing the charging ecosystem in India. In this collaborative partnership, they share the goal of fostering positive change – building a customer base for EVs in a growing market. By combining TPEM’s EV usage insights with BPCL’s nationwide reach, this project will be able to benefit from TPEM’s unmatched insight into EV usage. Charge infrastructure in the country is likely to be reshaped as a result of this project.
Globally, case studies demonstrate that ubiquitous and convenient charging infrastructure is vital to the adoption of electric vehicles and that EV adoption increases exponentially as charging infrastructure improves. It is expected that the collaboration between two leading companies will accelerate the expansion of charging infrastructure in the country, thus contributing to the mainstreaming of EV adoption in the country.
