Hero MotoCorp, the world’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles and scooters, and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL), a Fortune Global 500 Company, have collaborated to set up charging infrastructure for two-wheeled electric vehicles (EVs) across India.
Hero MotoCorp will first establish a substantial charging infrastructure at BPCL’s existing nationwide energy station network and subsequently may broaden the collaboration to develop more synergies within the EV ecosystem and adjacent business verticals, thereby enabling prospects throughout the customer life cycle.
In the first phase, charging stations will be set up across nine cities starting with Delhi and Bengaluru. The network will be then expanded across the country to establish a high density of charging stations.
Hero MotoCorp will soon commence the infrastructure development in the two cities. Each charging station will feature multiple charging points including DC and AC chargers and will be available for use to all two-wheeled EVs.
The entire user charging experience will be controlled by a Hero MotoCorp Mobile-App and will be a cashless transaction model.
Bharat Petroleum, accelerating its focus on new business segments for sustainable growth, had announced last year that it will convert its 7,000 conventional retail outlets into energy stations providing multiple fueling options, which will include EV charging facility also, in the medium to long term.
