Ultraviolette and HPCL will collaborate to develop an electric vehicle (EV) charging network

Ultraviolette Automotive and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited plan to establish EV charging infrastructure at HPCL's nationwide energy stations initially, with potential expansion for additional business opportunities later. In a move to support the transition to electric two-wheelers, HPCL collaborates with Ultraviolette to set up charging networks on highways, starting in the Southern region. Ultraviolette, known for its high-performance F77 electric motorcycle, launched in November 2022, plans to introduce its second model, the F99, in the Indian market next year.

Regarding EV charging infrastructure, the Ministry of Heavy Industries sanctioned INR 800 crore under the FAME-II scheme for three PSU oil marketing companies, including HPCL, to set up 7,432 public fast-charging EV stations across the country, to be completed by March. HPCL actively works on charging infrastructure and collaborates with various EV OEMs, aiming to commission 5,000 charging stations by 2023-24. In April last year, Statiq secured a tender from HPCL to install over 500 chargers at its outlets across various states.
