The Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL) in collaboration with Ola has launched the country’s first electric charging station at one of its petrol pumps in Nagpur.

Nagpur, being the first city to introduce electric public transportation model in India, has added one more feather to its cap by rolling out the first electric charging station at IOCL’s company-owned, company-operated (COCO) fuel station in the city.

“As India’s leading oil refiner and marketer, IOCL considers promoting ecological sustainability as part of its core business. Thus, this partnership with Ola is the right step forward as we re-imagine how India will commute in the coming years. We applaud Ola for building the electric vehicle eco-system from a nascent stage in Nagpur. EVs have the ability to solve some of the key issues we are currently facing with respect to vehicular pollution and air quality and as a large-scale mobility platform, Ola can bring about a catalytic change,” IndianOil’s Maharashtra state office executive director Murali Srinivasan said.
