In a development that is expected to boost electric vehicle (EV) adoption and mobility in India, Reliance’s Jio-bp has partnered with Hero Electric to strengthen mobility solutions for electric two-wheelers. Under the new partnership, the customers of Hero Electric are expected to get access to the widespread charging and swapping network of Jio-bp, which is also open to other vehicles.
In addition to creating solutions for seamless customer journey on Hero Electric and Jio-bp apps, both companies will create a differentiated customer experience that has been achieved with their global learnings in electrification.
