Shell is continuing its pivot into the electric automotive market. The company has just launched its first ever European electric vehicle mobility hub in Paris. This charging hub, however, is not open to any electric car driver, but is rather targeted towards businesses.
Companies that utilize electric vehicles as part of their commercial business model can sign up to use the station. These could be delivery fleets (long haul/distribution/last-mile/etc.), ride sharing companies, and ride hailing companies. Although this is the first official European hub established by Shell, the company plans to grow its electric charging network to 500,000 charge points by 2025 around the world.
Auto Trendy’s take:
Shell has been known for providing non-renewable energy sources and was one of the market leaders. Given the changes in legislation, customer demands, and environmental effects, the company has taken a clear decision to pivot its product. Still providing energy, Shell is now initiating ways to ensure that this energy is green and thus remaining a relevant market leader.
