Shell says it will start installing electric vehicle chargers at its gas stations this year

Shell’s business director John Abbott revealed the new business plan to Financial Times: “We have a number of countries where we’re looking at having battery charging facilities. If you are sitting charging your vehicle, you will want to have a coffee or something to eat.”

They didn’t reveal what kind of chargers they plan to use, but Abbott said that most electric cars will be able to charge up to 80% in 30 minutes – meaning that we are talking about level 3 DC fast-chargers.
