Jio-BP, Mahindra sign agreement to jointly develop EV charging solutions

Reliance BP Mobility Limited (RBML), operating under the brand name Jio-bp and Mahindra Group, announced a non-binding MoU for exploring the creation of EV products and services, alongside identifying synergies in low-carbon and conventional fuels. Jio-bp is a joint venture between Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) and UK’s bp plc. 

The MoU also covers evaluating charging solutions by Jio-bp for Mahindra vehicles including electric 3- and 4-wheelers, quadricycles and e-SCV (Small Commercial Vehicles – sub 4 tonne). This would include captive fleets and last-mile mobility vehicles of Mahindra Group. 

The partnership aims to leverage the strengths of both companies in the areas of EV products and services. Mahindra Group and its channel partner locations will be evaluated for setting up of Jio-bp Mobility Stations and EV charging and swapping points apart from utilizing existing Jio-bp stations. 

Jio-bp recently launched its first Mobility Station in Maharashtra, offering multiple fueling choices, including EV charging infrastructure, while providing a world-class retail experience. Additionally, business models like Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and Battery as a Service (BaaS) will be explored wherein Jio-bp could provide charging solutions to vehicles made by Mahindra Group. 

“The EV market in India is still at a nascent stage and through this MoU, various possibilities and orientation of database, operations support systems, software, pilot and commercial-scale business model and types of charging and swapping facilities are proposed to be explored and implemented, subject to techno-economic feasibility and necessary approvals,” an official statement issued by Mahindra Group said. 

It adds: “The partnership aims at accelerating EV adoption in India with high-performance and swappable batteries that will help in dispelling range anxiety. The solutions would afford great convenience to customers who can ideally bring in a depleted battery to their nearest swapping station and within minutes move on with fully charged batteries by paying a nominal fee. Such innovative solutions will broaden the horizon for both the companies and help realize India’s net-zero emissions goals faster.”
