Today “Drive” (part of the Nine / -ex Fairfax group) released its winner in the “Electric Vehicle of the Year” category, leading up to the overall “Car of the Year” announcement next week.

Drive Electric Vehicle of the Year, powered by BP | Drive Car News

If you want to skip the article... Hyundai Kona was 3rd, Jaguar i-Pace was 2nd and you can guess what was first - Tesla Model 3.

Now, given that Drive Car of the Year is sponsored by BP, what are the odds that the overall winner will not use the sponsor’s product? :D:D:D:D:D

Having an electric car of the year win the BP sponsored awards would be a huge marketing opportunity for BP to publicise its intent on charging station rollouts. BP have worked out that they need to adapt of fail.

If only some of the big petrol chains were that forward thinking .... I can see issues with some of the forecourt designs taking spots for longer charging periods, but there are some locations ripe for it ....maybe a charge fox & BP joint venture / collaboration first ...

I can kind of understand the thinking that EV chargers should be installed at servos... but they are not exactly pleasant places to spend any length of time at. It might be OK if it is part of a highway service centre with eateries adjacent etc.

Many servo’s in adelaide now have a small supermarket, noodlebox, macca’s, hj’s, and many others. Often multiples. They also have a good indoor seating area with an amazing view.....of people filling their archaic cars with fossil fuel.
