BP and Hertz are teaming up to make EV charging and electric vehicles more accessible. Together, they are helping expand the EV charging infrastructure and software availability. Most of the EV chargers BP Pulse is installing will be used for Hertz’s rental vehicles as they expand the number of electric vehicles available through their company. Other EV chargers being installed through BP Pulse will be available for taxi services and ride-sharing apps. BP Pulse’s deal with Hertz includes a software that will help manage the electricity usage and keeping their sizable fleet fully charged when they are rented out.

Hertz will be making electric vehicles available for their rental cars after initially striking up a deal with Tesla, Polestar, and GM to add over 300,000 new EVs for clients to rent out by year 2027. Hertz has plans to have electric vehicles make up a quarter of their entire fleet by year 2024. They currently have electric vehicles to rent and hundreds of locations in most of the states across the U.S.

Lots of businesses of all sizes have invested in electric fleets. Amazon has already made a commitment to have a certain number of vehicles in their repertoire to be electric. Ford is making trucks that are used for heavy duty work electric with a special software, so crews have an easier time managing the charging levels of their fleets.
