Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) and bp’s fuel and mobility joint venture, Reliance BP Mobility Limited (RBML), on Tuesday (26 October), launched its first Jio-bp branded Mobility Station at Navde, Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra.
Also, the existing network of over 1400 fuel pumps will be rebranded as Jio-bp. Jio-bp Mobility Stations bring together a range of services for consumers on the move – including additivised fuels, EV charging, refreshments and food, and plan to offer more low carbon solutions over time.
“The joint venture is well-positioned to become a leader in fuels and mobility by leveraging Reliance’s vast presence and deep experience in consumer businesses across India, with its hundreds of millions of customers in Jio and Reliance Retail, and bp’s extensive global experience in high-quality differentiated fuels, lubricants, convenience and advanced low carbon mobility solutions,” the company said.
Instead of regular fuels, Jio-bp Mobility Stations across the country will offer additivised fuels at no extra cost.
According to the company, the fuel offering will contain internationally developed ‘ACTIVE’ technology that forms a protective layer on critical engine parts to help keep the engines clean.
Jio-bp will also set up a network of EV Charging Stations and Battery Swap Stations at its Mobility Stations. The joint venture aims to become a leading EV charging infrastructure player in India.
In addition, Jio-bp will offer a network of Express Oil Change outlets, in partnership with Castrol, at its Mobility Stations, providing free vehicle health check-ups and free oil-change service through professionally trained experts.
Every two-wheeler customer buying Castrol lubricant at the Express Oil Change outlets will be able to avail oil change service at no cost.
