BP’s fuel retail brand in Germany, Aral, has announced plans to invest in a network of ultra-fast electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure across the country.
Aral will roll out more than 100 charging points across its retail network in Germany in the next 12 months – the first phase of the project will see chargers installed and connected at about 30 sites.
That follows a 12-month pilot project at five of its filling stations.
The EV chargers will be self-operated, powered by 100% green energy with a charging capacity of up to 350kW – the vehicles will be able to charge for a range of up to 350 kilometres in just ten minutes.
Aral CEO Patrick Wendeler said: “At Aral, our aim is to be the fuel provider of choice, whether drivers need electric charging or liquid fuels. As the market leader in the German filling station business, we are an ideal point of contact for convenient and reliable ultra-fast charging on the go.”
