McDonald’s opens a network of charging stations for electric carsSeptember 29, 2019
Fast food restaurants offer a new service for drivers
McDonald’s expands its functionality: now in restaurants you can not only have a bite to eat, but also replenish the power reserve of your electric car.
In the old days, fast food restaurants attracted visitors with free Wi-Fi, but now it’s time to come up with something new. McDonald’s was the first in the industry to launch a network of charging stations for electric vehicles that allow you to recharge the traction battery while the driver eats a Big Mac with fries and drinks it all with soda.
So far, such an opportunity exists only in Sweden, where McDonalds has equipped 55 of its restaurants with charging stations. True, along with fast food, this service is also paid – with per-minute billing. The network of charging stations is planned to be expanded to begin with both in Sweden and in the Netherlands, where 168 stations will soon be installed.
