Subway to Roll Out EV Charging Parks Nationwide
Subway, one of the world’s largest restaurant brands with more than 37,000 locations globally, has partnered with GenZ EV Solutions to install “Subway Oasis” charging stations at certain locations across the U.S.
In 2023, a select few restaurants will be part of the pilot program for a smaller-format charging station before the multi-year plan rolls out. The charging park would ultimately include charging canopies with multiple ports, picnic tables, Wi-Fi, restrooms, green space, and playgrounds.
Predictions from The Fuels Institute suggest the U.S. will need more than 1.7 million charging stations by 2030 with the ever-growing purchase of and interest in electric vehicles.
Other fast food franchises seem to be on a similar path for providing charging stations and could become a national trend.
