MG Motor India and Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) have inaugurated 12 DC fast charging stations on the Delhi-Jalandhar corridor. The 12 DC fast chargers are installed at a distance of about 100 km from each other and on both sides of the highway. This is the first of many such efforts under the partnership between MG and BPCL with more charging stations planned later this year.

MG Motor India has also announced that the ZS EV owners will get preferential experience at BPCL stations along with discounted charging rates. Customers can locate the charging station from the MG in-car dashboard or the MyMG app. However, payments will take place through the HelloBPCL mobile app.
