To recall, the company had launched its first Mobility Station at Navde, Navi Mumbai back in October, and since has been focussing on scaling up its network. BP had acquired a 49 percent stake in over 1,400 petrol pumps and 31 aviation turbine fuel (ATF) stations owned by Reliance back in 2019 for $1 billion. Now, the joint venture is looking to expand this number up to 5,500 by 2025. Also Read - JioPhone Next gets a major discount, available for Rs 4,499 on exchange

The company claims to be looking to set up a network of EV charging stations and battery swap stations, at its petrol pumps, which it refers to as ‘Mobility Stations’. Whereas, standalone points for EV charging stations and battery swap stations are being referred to as ‘Mobility Points’.

Jio-bp Mobility Stations are designed to help meet this growing demand and are ideally located to suit customer convenience. They bring together a range of services for consumers on the move – including additivised fuels, EV charging, refreshments & food, and plan to offer more low carbon solutions over time,” Reliance-bp had said in October last year.

The company has also stated that Jio-bp Mobility Stations across the country will be offering additivised fuel, at no extra cost. This fuel will contain an internationally developed ‘ACTIVE’ technology, which forms a protective layer on critical engine parts to help keep the engines clean, according to the company.

With the joint venture, the company also plans to leverage Reliance‘s wide customer base across India from its Jio and Reliance Retail lines. Apart from normal fuel and electric fuel options, the company is also looking to offer differentiated fuels, lubricants, convenience and advanced low carbon mobility solutions to its customers.
