The collaboration will leverage Bharat Petroleum Corporation’s widespread fuel stations network and TPEM’s insights from over 1.15 lakh Tata EVs on Indian roads, to set up chargers at locations frequently visited by Tata EV owners, it added.

Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL) aims to install 7,000 electric vehicle charging stations by next year and it has initiated over 90 electric vehicles (EV) fast-charging highway corridors across the nation, the statement said.

The collaboration with BPCL is aimed at accelerating India’s journey towards e-mobility, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility managing director Shailesh Chandra said.

“This collaborative partnership epitomises our shared vision of fostering positive change — an enabling infrastructure for the growing EV customer base,” he said

“EV is a field of collaboration and we believe that joining hands with TPEM shall take the EV game of BPCL and TPEM to the next level,” BPCL executive director in-charge retail, Santosh Kumar said.
