Big Plans For Mahindra In The EV Business

Mahindra & Mahindra and Jio-bp (a fuel and mobility joint venture between Reliance Industries and Bharat Petroleum) have joined hands to strengthen their existing partnership. Under this, they have plans to set up a charging network for the upcoming Mahindra e-SUV launches. The RIL and bp joint venture are expanding its Pulse-branded EV charging network at quite some pace. They are setting up charging facilities at multiple touch points within cities and major highways for intra-city and inter-city commutes of EV owners.

Initially, starting with 16 cities, Jio-bp will install DC fast chargers across the M&M dealership network and workshops in the country. These chargers are open to the public, thus allowing all stakeholders in the EV value chain to make use of them.

We recently saw Mahindra unveil the XUV400. However, the launch and price announcement are set to take place in January 2023. The carmaker has also teased its Born Electric Vision range of EVs. These will arrive in the markets sometime in the coming years, thus expanding Mahindra’s electric vehicle lineup with more options.
