HOUSTON — BP is betting big on the future of mobility. The energy company plans to invest $1 billion by 2023 on electric vehicle (EV) charge points across the United States.
A cornerstone of the investment includes the partnership between Hertz and BP to bring fast charging infrastructure to Hertz locations in major cities, including Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Miami, New York City, Orlando, Phoenix, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
According to BP, several of the fast-charging installations will include gigahub locations. These are large-scale fast charging hubs, such as one location previously announced by BP and Hertz at Los Angeles International Airport. The hubs will serve rideshare and taxi drivers, car rental customers and the general public at high-demand locations, such as airports. The buildout will be informed by telematics from Hertz’s fleet of connected cars. READ MORE
