Previously several retailers also did the same thing. Starbucks Teams up with Volvo to install public EV chargers station. At an early stage this partnership will be realized with the installation of 60 Volvo-branded ChargePoint DC fast chargers in 15 Starbucks store locations.
This is seen as a strategy by some retailers to provide extra services to customers and increase their green credentials.
The first filling station for Carrefour customers to use is in the parking lot of the La Chapelle Saint-Luc hypermarket in Troyes, northeastern France. The charging station will start operating on April 8.
According to the “Power sector accelerating e-mobility” report from the professional services group and European utility trade agency, it takes 65 million electric vehicle chargers consisting of 9 million public chargers and 56 million residential chargers to keep pace with the growth of electric vehicles in Europe.
