Jio-bp, MG Motor and Castrol sign partnership to boost electric mobility

MG Motor India and Castrol India have collaborated with Jio-bp to explore mobility solutions for electric cars. Under the partnership, Jio-bp, MG Motor and Castrol will explore setting up four-wheeler EV charging infrastructure and expand Castrol’s existing auto service network to cater to EV customers.

Reportedly, Castrol will start serving four-wheeler electric automobiles through its current multi-brand Auto Service network and Express Oil Change locations as part of the partnership. These services will initially be accessible across India at Jio-bp mobility stations and select Castrol Auto Service workshops and will cater to both EV and non-EV four-wheelers. Castrol will also assist with the installation of EV charging infrastructure across its auto servicing network. Castrol will leverage its access to a vast pool of car mechanics and offer them specialised EV training and certification.

In April 2022, Jio-bp and TVS Motor Company agreed to investigate the development of a robust public EV charging infrastructure in the country for electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers. Under the proposed agreement, the customers of TVS electric vehicles are expected to gain access to Jio- bp’s extensive charging network, which is also open to other vehicles.
