Why install EV charging points at petrol stations & auto centres?
Yes, traditionally these places sell liquid fuels for internal combustion engine vehicles.
But, as Dylan once sang, the times they are a changing. We're on the cusp of a transport transition in Australia and New Zealand, where ICEs will soon be phased out by EVs.
So, if you run a petrol station, aftermarket auto parts centre, tyre fitting or other automotive related business, why should you install electric vehicle charge points?
Doing it now means you'll get the jump on your competitors by catering for current and future EV drivers and build a base of repeat customers who'll appreciate the power top up when they collect their serviced or repaired car.
Need help with EV charging for your fuel or auto business?
Petrol station EV charging
Firstly, while it might seem contradictory to install EV charging at petrol stations, the simple fact is that the EV revolution is coming. Creating a space for electric vehicle charging is not only becoming common, but will become an essential offering next to the bowser. In addition, we reckon, it will soon be the ONLY way to ‘refuel’ personal and commercial transport vehicles.
We understand that you’re in business so, naturally, monetising your EV charging points is important. The management of pay-per-charge EV points can be done a number of ways, as can the ongoing maintenance. And, if your petrol station serves refreshments – and most do – you have a captive paying audience for the time it takes to charge up.
Most importantly, can you afford not to install charge points? In other parts of the world, even the big oil guys are connecting with EV owners. As new EVs hit the Aussie and NZ market, the demand will only get stronger.
Auto services EV charging
We think this is a no brainer. Particularly, if you are a customer-facing business that provides anything to do with automotive parts, servicing, sales or tyres, a single, or multi-site, EV charge point should be on your radar.
Whether your customers sit in a waiting room or leave their vehicle with you and zoom off in a courtesy car, every and all EV owning customers will love the fact you’ve returned their wheels to them with a full tank of electrons.
We were delighted to be JAX Tyres EV charging partner, installing AURA universal chargers at each of their 89 sites. What’s in it for them? Well, for a moderate investment, they’ve already received nationwide publicity and attributable sales. And our partnership has really only just begun!
In short, by providing a value-add service for the rapidly growing (and enthusiastic!) group of EV owners in Australia and New Zealand, you’re helping to accelerate the uptake of sustainable transport for personal, commercial and fleet owners. Similarly, taking a groundbreaking step like this will push you well ahead of a very competitive market.
Easy EV charging management for petrol and auto services
