Citroën India has announced a strategic partnership with Jio-bp, fuels, and mobility joint venture between Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) and bp to build EV infrastructure and services across its network. Jio-bp will install DC fast chargers across Citroën’s key dealership network and workshops across the country in phases. These chargers will also be open to the entire universe of EV car customers to help boost EV adoption among consumers.
With the New Citroën ë-C3 All Electric scheduled for launch in Q1 2023, this partnership will ensure Jio-bp’s charging infrastructure network is accessible via the My Citroën Connect app.
Jio-bp currently operates a rapidly expanding network of EV charging and swapping stations under the Jio-bp pulse brand. The entire range of Jio-bp pulse offerings can be accessed via its mobile app which helps customers easily locate EV charging stations in their vicinity, and facilitates digital payments amongst others. Driven by the vision to be among India’s largest EV charging networks, Jio-bp is creating an electric mobility ecosystem that will benefit stakeholders across the EV value chain and is expanding its Jio-bp pulse-branded EV charging network by setting up charging facilities at multiple touch points within cities and major highways to ensure smooth intra-city and inter-city commutes for EV owners.
