Nissan & Mark Oil (BP Fuel Distributer) Partner For EV Fast Charging Buildout In Charlotte, North Carolina

Nissan and the BP fuel distributer Mark Oil will be partnering for an EV-fast-charging buildout in Charlotte, North Carolina, according to recent reports.

The buildout will see DC-fast-charging stations installed at 10 BP gas stations in Charlotte, with the result being that EV drivers are never “more than 10 miles from a fast-charger.”

Interesting news. We’ve speculated quite a bit here at CleanTechnica that if gas stations want to maintain anywhere close to current business levels into the next decade or two, then they will likely need to begin installing EV-fast-charging points. Shell is apparently going that route in the UK.

Whether or not EV owners will actually want to charge at gas stations when they have to option of charging at parks, malls, outside of restaurants, etc., is a real question, though. It may be that gas stations will decline in number significantly over the next few decades (they’ve already begun to, for various reasons, which EVs aren’t even a part of).
