BP, the oil giant, has recently announced a significant move in the electric vehicle (EV) charging industry. In a deal worth $100 million, BP Pulse, the company's EV charging business, will be acquiring ultra-fast charging hardware units from Tesla. This strategic acquisition is part of BP's plan to expand its public network across the United States.
The rollout of these chargers is set to begin next year, with installation sites including prominent locations such as TravelCenters of America and Thorntons. The initial cities to benefit from this network expansion will be Houston, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington D.C.
Furthermore, BP Pulse fleet customer depots will also have Tesla chargers deployed. This marks a significant milestone as it is the first time that Tesla's chargers will be integrated into an independent EV charging network.
Rebecca Tinucci, Tesla's senior director of charging infrastructure, expressed enthusiasm about the deal, stating, "Selling our fast-charging hardware is a new step for us, and one we're looking to expand in support of our mission to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy."
As BP continues its commitment to fostering sustainable energy practices, this partnership with Tesla emphasizes their dedication to providing convenient and efficient charging options for EV users throughout the United States.
