Nagpur: Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) has collaborated with app-based taxi aggregator Ola to launch the country's first electric charging station at one of its petrol/diesel stations in Nagpur.

This is a big leap towards contributing to the vision of 'Green India', the state-owned oil refiner said in a statement.

 

"Electric vehicles 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," the statement said.

The electric charging facility was inaugurated at Indian Oil's Company-Owned, Company-Operated (COCO) fuel station at RBI Square, Nagpur, in the presence of senior officials, dealers and customers.

Nagpur is the first city to introduce electric public transportation model in the country when it introduced 200 electric vehicles, including taxis, buses, e-rickshaw and autos in May.

 

"As India's leading oil refiner and marketer, Indian Oil 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," Murali Srinivasan Indian Oil's Executive Director, Maharashtra said.
