Hero MotoCorpand BPCL to set up EV charging infrastructure across India

Hero MotoCorp Limited hascollaborated with Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) to establish charging infrastructure for two-wheeler electric vehicles (EVs) across India.

Hero has become the first automotive original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to tie up with BPCL to set up charging infrastructure. In the first phase, charging stations will be set up across nine cities starting with Delhi and Bengaluru. Later, the network will be expanded across the country with the aim to establish a high density of charging stations. Each charging station will feature multiple charging points including direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) chargers and will be available for use to all two-wheeler EVs.The two entities will first establish a substantial charging infrastructure at the existing nationwide energy station network and subsequently may broaden the collaboration to develop more synergies within the EV ecosystem and adjacent business verticals.
