The joint venture of billionaire Mukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Industries and energy major bp – Jio-bp today announced the launch of its first branded mobility station at Navde, Navi Mumbai in Maharashtra. In a statement released on Tuesday, October 26, Jio-bp said that it will sell additivised fuel at no extra cost, instead of regular fuels, at its ‘mobility stations’ – which will take place for the first time in India.

The joint venture aims to become a leading EV charging infrastructure player in the country.

Every two-wheeler customer buying the Castrol lubricant at the Express Oil change outlets will be able to avail the oil change service at no cost, according to Jio-bp.

The convenience offering will also offer refreshments to customers who are on the move, through its 24×7 shop – ‘Wild Bean Café’ – in partnership with Reliance Retail – the country’s largest retailer.

The international on-the-move brand by bp will serve its signature coffee along with a blend of regional and local fare including masala chai, samosa, upma, paneer tikka roll, and chocolate lava cake to customers.

Additionally, Jio-bp will also provide new value propositions such as dynamic pricing, instant discounts, happy hour schemes, implementation of flexible and uniform digital payment across the network.

In 2019, bp had bought a 49 per cent stake in more than 1,400 petrol pumps and 31 aviation turbine fuel (ATF) stations owned by Reliance for $1 billion.
