India, the world's third biggest carbon emitter, is offering incentives to motorists as it seeks to speed up the adoption of electric vehicles in the country.

Reliance BP Mobility Ltd opened its first station under the Jio-BP brand at Navi Mumbai, and in the coming months plans to rebrand the 1,400 stations that belonged to Reliance before the joint venture was formed in 2019, it said.

BP Chief Executive Bernard Loony last week said the plan is raise the number of fuel stations to 5,500 by 2025.

BP has 49% stake in the joint venture while Reliance, operator of the world's biggest refining complex, holds the remainder.
