"The strategic partnership is aimed at creating EV-friendly roads for inter-city and intra-city travel by setting up a robust EV charging and service infrastructure in the country," the statement said. EV customers will be able to locate nearby charging stations by using the Jio-bp pulse mobile app.

Such initiative is not new for Jio-bp, which is a joint venture between Reliance Industries and British Petroleum. Earlier in April, TVS Motor Company too announced a tie-up with Jio-bp to set up public EV charging infrastructure for electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers.

Meanwhile, Castrol aims to increase its auto service network through this tie-up. It hopes to start serving four-wheeler electric cars. These services will be offered across India at both Jio-bp mobility stations as well as select Castrol Auto Service workshops initially to serve both EV and non-EV four-wheelers.
