BPCL sets up EV fast-chargers on Chennai-Madurai highway

CCS-2 DC fast chargers have been installed at 10 fuel bunks along the 900 km route.

Bharat Petroleum has launched EV fast-charging corridors on the Chennai-Madurai highway. The company has installed CCS-2 DC fast chargers at 10 fuel bunks along the 900 km route on both sides of the highway.

BPCL plans to provide CCS-2 EV charging stations at its fuel pumps at periodic intervals on all major national highways connecting major cities and economic centres in the country. The Chennai-Trichy-Madurai highway is part of the first phase, which will be followed up by key routes.

As part of its plan, BPCL will be converting 7,000 conventional retail outlets into Energy Stations that will provide multiple fuelling options, including EV charging facilities in the medium to long term. The company will also roll out its chain of ‘In & Out’ convenience stores at key fuel stations on highways.
