Mccharge? Yes, McDonald’s wants to charge its visitors’ electric carsSeptember 28, 2019
McDonald’s is committed to offering EV charging in its renowned fast food chain.
McDonald’s has grown into Sweden’s largest chain of restaurants for charging electric vehicles. After the installation of the first charging posts in 2009, the mega-network now has 55 charging stations throughout the Scandinavian country. Charging stations continue to be installed as McDonald strives to have charging stations in all of its restaurants where you can drive.
McDonald’s has released its own version of the classic “parking signs” that tell electric car drivers where the charging stations are located at restaurants … In addition to the current charging price, the signs also show the current price for the Big Mac and Happy Meal. As more and more customers choose electric cars, McDonald’s wants it easier for them to find a place to charge their electric cars with the convenient turn signal on Golden Arches signage.
“Our sign is a new and fun example of the classic way to do it,” says Kristoffer Rennblad, McDonald’s marketing director for Sweden.
And this is happening not only in Sweden. At McDonald’s in the Netherlands, two quick charge points will be installed with McDrive. McDonald’s plans to include 168 fast-charging stations in the Netherlands.
Bas Claassen, director of real estate development and construction at McDonald’s, said he was pleased to “offer those of our customers who ride electric cars a convenient fast charging point with good amenities on the road.”
