RIL-BP JV open to set up EV charging network in India

BP’s CEO, BOB Dudley, has announced that it plans to roll out electric vehicle charging infrastructure in India via its joint venture with RIL.

“As we plan to go forward is providing electric charging at the retail sites and networks. So, it doesn’t involve constructing the cars or vehicles…And over time when it makes sense, we will put charging networks,” he stated.

The government is pushing for a faster adoption of EVs and is thus aiming at one charging station at every four kilometres in cities and twenty-five kilometers on both ways of highways.
