Hertz and bp to Develop Network of EV Charging Stations in USA


(09/28/22)
Hertz and bp have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop a network of EV charging stations in the US operated by bp pulse, bp’s global brand of electrification and charging solutions.

The MOU also includes bp pulse managing Hertz’s charging infrastructure and adapting Omega’s software to ensure Hertz’s growing fleet of electric rental vehicles is charged quickly and efficiently between rentals.

Omega supports fleet operations by automating the charging process with low electricity prices while providing real-time visibility of EVs, chargers, power consumption and more.

Hertz already has a footprint of locations across North America suitable for bp pulse to build and manage a network of fast charging stations to serve Hertz customers, including taxi and ridesharing drivers, as well as the general public.

“This is a milestone. It shows the power of bringing together bp’s digital and operational capabilities with a partner like Hertz. Coupled with its industry-leading electrification ambitions, we can transform the future of electric rental vehicles,” said Vic Shao, Founder of Amply Power and President of bp pulse’s Fleet Division in the United States.

Through major purchases from Tesla, Polestar and GM, Hertz has assembled a fleet of tens of thousands of electric vehicles available at 500 Hertz locations in 38 states.

The company aims to have a quarter of its fleet electric by the end of 2024, with continued growth through acquisitions from various EV manufacturers.

Hertz has invested in thousands of charging stations across its sites and this partnership with bp pulse will allow Hertz to significantly expand its national charging infrastructure.

Stephen Scherr, CEO of Hertz, said: “Hertz is accelerating the adoption of electrification by investing in the largest electric vehicle rental fleet in North America and expanding charging station availability. We are excited to partner with bp pulse to create a nationwide charging infrastructure for Hertz’s electric vehicle fleet, expanding the number of charging options available to our customers and providing them with a premium electric experience and lower-emission travel options.”

bp pulse is expanding its global high-speed charging network for cars, light commercial vehicles and trucks with a global target of more than 100,000 chargers by 2030, with around 90% of these being fast or ultra-fast chargers.
