MG Motor India has joined hands with Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) to set up EV charging infrastructure across the country. With this, MG becomes the first passenger car company to tie up with BPCL to rapidly enhance the adoption of ‘green mobility’. Aligned with its vision to “ChangeWhatYouCan”, this is MG’s next step toward strengthening electric vehicle adoption in India. As a part of this collaboration, the two entities will install EV chargers across highways and within cities.
Commenting on the development, Rajeev Chaba, President and Managing Director, MG Motor India, said, “The key to a successful transition to electric mobility is a robust EV ecosystem. MG has been at the forefront of the development of a strong EV ecosystem since the launch of the MG ZS EV in 2020. Along with our ecosystem partners, we are working to create a vast network of EV charging stations, in addition to battery recycling & battery second life solutions for end-to-end sustainability for electric vehicles. Furthermore, our customers also benefit from the unique 6-way charging ecosystem that makes using an EV every day much easier. Our partnership with BPCL is yet another step to strengthening the EV charging infrastructure in India to energize and enhance customer confidence in EVs. BPCL's strong presence and vast network in India will ensure that existing and prospective customers across the country have convenient access to charging solutions. We aim to further expand the opportunities of charging an EV and educate consumers on the environmental benefits of the same.”
