Bharat Petroleum installs EV Fast Charging stations on South Indian highways.

Bharat Petroleum has installed nine 25 kW CCS-2 EV fast charging stations on the Bangalore-Chennai and Bangalore-Mysore-Coorg Highway.

Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) announced the launch of EV Fast Charging stations on two highways in South India, Bangalore-Chennai and Bangalore-Mysore-Coorg Highway.

The fast chargers follow the CCS-2 protocol and are strategically located at nine BPCL fuel stations with an approximate distance of 100 Km on both sides of the routes.

BPCL plans to provide CCS-2 EV charging stations at its fuel pumps at periodic intervals on all major national highways connecting major cities and economic centres in the country. The Chennai-Trichy-Madurai highway was part of the first phase.

The installation of a 25 KW fast charger will enable customers to discover and charge their EVs in about 30 minutes to enjoy a travel range of up to 125 Km along with the convenience of BPCL’s user-friendly payment mobile application HelloBPCL. The fast charger can be self-operated without any manual assistance, however, support staff help will be available when needed.

With the announcement of the launch, BPCL aims at accelerating its focus on new business segments and converting its 7,000 conventional Retail Outlets into Energy Stations providing multiple fueling options, which will also include an EV charging facility, in the medium to long term.

Speaking at the launch of the EV Fast-Charging Corridors, P.S. Ravi, Executive Director In-charge (Retail) of BPCL, said: “The growth of the Indian electric vehicle market has been significant over the years and the launch of our EV Fast-Charging Corridors on the Bangalore-Chennai Highway and Bangalore-Mysore-Coorg Highway is aligned with India’s EV dream of transitioning to cleaner alternatives. Our leading edge in providing “superior” solutions and experiences will serve our EV customers along the two new corridors and will provide a Pure for Sure experience in this exciting journey of electric mobility.“
