Walmart announced plans to build a network of fast charging stations for electric vehicles at thousands of Walmart and Sam's Club stores across the U.S. by 2030.Prior to this, more than 280 electric vehicle facilities in the United States have been equipped with nearly 1,300 electric vehicle fast charging stations.
Walmart didn't say how many million fast charging stations it plans to add by the end of the decade, but even with just 1,001 charging stations, that's obviously good news for the EV charging infrastructure in the US. "With our store or club located within 10 miles of approximately 90 percent of Americans, we are uniquely positioned to provide convenient charging options that will help people own electric vehicles whether they live in rural, suburban or urban areas. Cars. Our goal is to meet the needs of our customers and members where they live, and to open the way for people who drive across the country."
"With more than 4,700 stores and 600 Sam's Club locations, approximately 90 percent of Americans are within 10 miles of Walmart," said Walmart's senior vice president of energy transition. The company told Reuters it plans to own and operate EV charging stations across its nationwide network and is currently looking for a supplier. Walmart expects to install an average of four chargers per participating store.
Besides the convenient location, Walmart has another thing going for it -- its chargers will be on-site, along with its supercenters, neighborhood markets, and Sam's Clubs, allowing EV owners to pick up essentials for their families or to recharge on-site. Eat while you're at it. Walmart also said it plans to offer daily low-price charging to help keep shipping costs down.
