Subway plans “charging oases” in the US

Fast-food franchise chain Subway has announced plans to install “charging havens” for electric cars in the US. In partnership with charging solutions provider GenZ EV Solutions, the subway wants to set up the first fast charging parks in select locations by the end of this year.

The charging parks, dubbed “subway oases,” should offer more than just fast charging stations — solar roofs, picnic tables, WLAN access, restrooms, green spaces and playgrounds. A rendering of such a charging park shows eight fast charging points. However, in the announcement, Subway says that as part of a multi-year plan, “small fast charging stations for electric vehicles will first be tested at select new or remodeled restaurants in the United States.” The exact size of these pilot stations has not been specified.

Also, all locations are yet to be decided. “Subway says it is working with owners to identify locations for both small EV charging stations and Subway EV Charging Oasis Parks. Interested owners can contact Subway at a designated email address.

The notification does not specify which charging hardware will be installed. But it may be a question of fast chargers with German participation: as is well known, GenZ EV Solutions is the US sales partner for ADS-TEC Energy’s battery-backed fast charging stations.

“We’re constantly looking for new ways to innovate and exceed our guests’ expectations for a high-quality, convenient experience,” said Mike Cupbitt, Subway’s chief operating and intelligence officer. “Our partnership with GenZ EV Solutions is a win for our guests, our owners and our planet as we create a dedicated area for drivers to charge their vehicle while enjoying their favorite Subway sandwich.”
