Reliance BP Mobility to set up 24 EV battery swapping stations across India
Reliance BP Mobility Ltd, a joint venture between Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) and UK's energy major BP Plc, has announced that it has commenced infrastructure development at all supply locations and started pilot testing of battery swap stations at over 24 select locations, the company said in its annual report.
"Initial response has been encouraging with strong growth in daily order deliveries. RBML is committed to creating a world-class fuelling experience for its customers, with a proven customer value proposition, synergies of extended group companies (RIL and bp), company-wide focus on customer-centricity, and best-in-class technology," RIL said.
RBML plans to deliver consumers with advanced fuels that have lower emissions, charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, and other low carbon solutions.
The company has kick-started its franchisee onboarding process to expand its fuel retail network expansion to up to 5,500 outlets in over five years, from the existing 1400.
This week, RBML also started a doorstep delivery service of diesel. "With its services traversing across India, it is uncovering the latent needs of the non-transport sector, and meeting these needs with great efficiency, leading the way to market leadership in the non-transport sector," it said.
