The largest network of electric chargers in the UK has been bought by BP.
Chargemaster has been sold for an ‘undisclosed sum’, the BBC reports.
BP, which has 1,200 petrol forecourts, recently announced it would add more charging points for EVs at its petrol stations.
Chargemaster - which will be renamed ‘BP Chargemaster’ - currently has 6,500 charging points around the country, and runs POLAR, a public charging network. It also sells EV charging points for the home.
BP, which has invested in Pure Planet, says one of its goals is to speed up charging so that it will only take just 10 minutes to charge an EV so that it can for run for 100 miles.
Motoring journalist Richard Aucock has called this deal “hugely significant”. Do you agree? Will this persuade more people to get an EV for the next car?
