Hilton to grow its EV charging network during 2016
The units will be provided by GE and Tesla and are said to offer compatibility with all types of electric vehicles, and the network will span from Manhattan to Los Angeles once complete.
Hotel owners will be able to take the equipment free of charge, only paying for installation and electricity usage. Hilton said it is also planning to extend its international charging point network over the next year.
Jim Holthouser, executive vice president, Global Brands, Hilton Worldwide, said: “We believe technology can and should take the friction out of travel – no matter if you’re road-tripping in an electric vehicle or flying into town and need to find the best way to get to one of our hotels. Our goal is to support our guests in their travels no matter what technology they’re using.”
