MD of Tesla Power USA, Kavinder Khurana stated, “This is the first time that automotive batteries will be available on a large scale at petrol pumps, similar to the western markets. Tesla Power currently has over 5000 distribution points in India that we aim to double in 2023. The addition of IOCL petrol pumps can potentially offer Tesla Power USA a distribution reach of over 40,000.”

Quoting India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA), Mr Khurana added that the country’s battery market would develop at a compound annual growth rate of 25% from 2021 to 2026. “With the EV market growing at an impressive CAGR of 49%, fuel pumps must be well-equipped and ready for the transition. By 2030, there will be around one crore EV scooters alone on Indian roads. Tesla Power USA offers both lead-acid batteries and Lithium batteries, to cater to all segments of vehicles.”

Delhi-headquartered Indian Oil Corporation Limited is India’s diversified, integrated energy public sector undertaking with a presence in almost all the streams of oil, gas, petrochemicals and alternative energy sources.

Tesla Power India Pvt. Ltd is based out of Gurgaon (APAC office) with the global headquarters in Delaware, USA. The company aims to cater to all segments of vehicles by offering both lead-acid batteries and lithium batteries.
