bp’s market leading fuel retail brand in Germany Aral is set to invest in a network of ultra-fast charging infrastructure across the country. Following a successful 12-month pilot project at five of its retail sites, Aral plans to roll out more than 100 charging points across its retail network in Germany over the next 12 months. The Aral chargers will be self-operated, powered by 100% green energy, with a charging capacity of up to 350kW, otherwise known as ultra-fast chargers. A vehicle with the appropriate battery technology can be charged for a range of up to 350 km in just over ten minutes. The first phase of the roll-out will see chargers installed and connected at about 30 Aral sites, mainly those located by motorways, trunk roads and at metropolitan sites. Each retail site will offer two chargers with two charging points, allowing up to four electric vehicles to charge at a time.

The next two charging stations due to go live in the coming weeks are Wuppertal in North Rhine-Westphalia and Wollin in Brandenburg. The exact order of commissioning of the other retail stations will depend, among other factors, on the expansion of the grid. In the long term, Aral has identified potential to build ultra-fast charging stations at several hundred locations.

Various payment options are available for customers using Aral’s ultra-fast chargers, including via credit card terminal or mobile website using a QR code, or via the Hubject app or through their Aral Fuel & Charge card for business customers. From 2021, Aral will also offer its own e-mobility app for payments.
