Alongside our partners, we are working to establish an extensive network of EV charging stations, as well as solutions for battery recycling and second-life applications to ensure the sustainability of electric vehicles. Our partnership with HPCL is a crucial step in expanding India’s EV charging infrastructure, thereby enhancing consumer confidence in EVs,” Gupta remarked.

Rajdip Ghosh, Chief General Manager of Highway Retailing at HPCL, emphasized the company’s dedication to a sustainable future. “HPCL operates a vast network of over 22,000 fuel stations and is committed to offering green fuel alternatives. We plan to install 5,000 electric vehicle charging stations by December 2024. Through our collaboration with MG Motor India, we aim to leverage MG’s vehicle user base to maximize the utilization of our charging stations across India,” Ghosh stated.

Customers using these charging stations will also enjoy loyalty rewards and exclusive promotions, further incentivizing the adoption of electric mobility.
