Reliance Jio-BP and BluSmart have established a partnership to set up a commercial EV charging network across the country starting with Delhi-NCR. The alliance will also work with BluSmart to expand its EV fleet and services in multiple cities.

BluSmart is a Gurugram-based India’s first and leading all-electric ride-hailing mobility service provider offering sustainable means of transportation in the national capital region. It has currently over 500 electric cars and around 300 charging stations. While Reliance Industries, to enter into green energy, has a joint venture with British Petroleum (BP) together called Jio-BP.

Now, the new association between BluSmart and Jio-BP will work together to plan, develop, and operate charging infrastructure for electric vehicles in various sites within cities where BluSmart is already operating. The first phase includes developing charging stations with a capacity of a minimum of 30 electric vehicles.

Through their joint coalition, the two firms plan to expand their green fuel retailing network to over 5,000 outlets in various states in the next five years. They will use Jio‘s digital platform to connect with consumers and establish franchises. They will set up battery swap stations at different locations and already have kicked off the pilot testing at 24 centres.

BluSmart Mobility will also exploit the partnership in expanding its fleet and charging network to newer cities where the green mobility provider hasn’t made its presence yet. Also, Reliance is eyeing to achieve its goal of being a net-zero carbon company by 2030 with this union.
