The two companies will first establish charging infrastructure at HPCL's existing network of nationwide energy stations, with the likelihood of subsequently broadening the collaboration for supplementary business opportunities.

In the first phase, charging stations will be set up in select cities, which will then be expanded to other key markets with the aim of establishing a high density of EV charging station network across the country.

Hero MotoCorp will lead the infrastructure development for the charging network. Each charging station will feature multiple smart and fast chargers, including DC and AC chargers that will be available to all two-wheeled EVs.

The entire user charging experience will be controlled by a Hero MotoCorp Mobile-App, based on a cashless transaction model, it said.
