Jio-bp will be setting up EV charging and battery swapping stations at properties of Omaxe in 12 cities as it looks to take mobility solutions to the doorstep of users.
In a statement to the media, the firms said Omaxe will be a partner in establishing a battery charging ecosystem for electrical vehicles.
“Jio-bp will set up EV charging and swapping infrastructure at various Omaxe properties across Delhi, Noida, Greater Noida, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, New Chandigarh, Ludhiana, Patiala, Amritsar, Jaipur, Sonipat and Bahadurgarh in a phased manner,” it said.
“Jio-bp will install 24×7 EV charging infrastructure for two and four-wheelers at Omaxe properties,” the statement said.
Last year, Jio-bp constructed and launched two of India’s largest EV charging hubs.
“Leveraging the best of Reliance and bp’s strengths in electrification, Jio-bp is creating a charging ecosystem that will benefit all the stakeholders in the EV value chain,” the statement said.
As the penetration of EVs — automobiles powered by electric power that uses energy stored in rechargeable batteries — increases, Jio-bp feel charging infrastructure needs to be set up at commercial establishments. It is working with developers and real estate players in the country.
The joint venture’s EV services operate under the brand Jio-bp pulse, and with the Jio-bp pulse mobile app, customers can easily find charging stations nearby and seamlessly charge their electric vehicles.
In the last 34 years, Omaxe has established a strong footprint in several cities in North and Central India.
It has delivered a wide range of real estate projects – from integrated townships to offices, malls and high street projects.+
