Hertz, BP Plan Charging Station Network

By Staff Writer September 30, 2022 293

Hertz and BP signed a memorandum of understanding to develop a national network of EV charging stations powered by BP Pulse, BP’s global electrification and charging solution brand.

The agreement also involves the customization of its Omega software to ensure Hertz’s growing fleet of electric rental cars are recharged quickly and efficiently between rentals. Omega supports fleet operations by automating charging when the power price is low, while providing real-time visibility to EVs, chargers, power usage, and more.

Hertz has a national footprint of locations across North America suitable for BP pulse to build and manage a network of fast-charging hubs to serve Hertz customers, including taxi and ride sharing drivers, as well as the general public.

“We are excited to partner with bp pulse to create a national charging infrastructure for the Hertz EV fleet, thereby growing the number of charging options available to our customers and providing them with a premium electric experience and lower emission travel options,” Stephen Scherr, Hertz CEO said.

Through large-scale purchases from Tesla, Polestar and GM, Hertz has assembled a fleet of tens of thousands of EVs, which are available at 500 Hertz locations across 38 states. Hertz’s objective is for one-quarter of its fleet to be electric by the end of 2024.
