A cornerstone of bp’s $1 billion investment includes an intention to bring fast charging infrastructure to Hertz locations in more than a dozen major cities. bp currently offers 22,000 EV charge points worldwide.
A number of the fast-charging installations will include gigahubs 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.
