After the signing, BOLT brand logo will be sported on the leading arm of the Delhi Capitals match jersey through the upcoming season of the league.

Through this partnership, BOLT aims to amplify the message of ‘Electricity Is The New Fuel’, thereby highlighting how the brand is enabling EVs across India, and encouraging the adoption of e-mobility in the country. The BOLT-Delhi Capitals partnership also aims to promote efforts in enhancing the air quality index in the National Capital Region, by promoting the availability of safe, easy access, and affordable EV charging solutions.

Speaking on the association, Jyotiranjan Harichandan, Cofounder, BOLT said: “We are proud to be chosen as the EV Charging Partner of Delhi Capitals. The scale and reach of IPL provides a great platform for us to rapidly drive awareness and familiarity for the brand across the country, as we expand our geographic footprint. This gives us the opportunity to introduce our affordable and easy-to-access EV charging infrastructure to a wider audience thereby accelerating the adoption of EVs across the country.”

“By providing an ubiquitous EV Charging network, we look forward to playing a key role in India’s transition towards EVs. We wish Delhi Capitals good luck for IPL 2022,” he added.
