Shell preps for the future with acquisition of EV charging network

Shell says that these will complement the company’s existing roll-out of charging stations. “One is fast charging on the go on the forecourt and the other is a slightly lower rate of charge at the workplace or at home,” vice president of new fuels Matthew Tipper said. “At this stage there are no plans to integrate the two.”

Meaning, don’t expect the NewMotion locations to be where you can top off a charge on your way home. While these won’t be Shell’s first foray into building an EV-ready infrastructure, it hows that the company is planning for a future where petroleum-based fuels won’t be as prevalent. For you and me, that should translate to range anxiety (potentially) becoming a thing of the past.
