7-Eleven adds more DC charging in North America
In North America, convenience-store chain 7-Eleven plans to build at least 500 DC fast charging ports for electric vehicles at 250 select stores in the US and Canada by the end of 2022.
Owned and operated by 7-Eleven, the new DCFC ports will increase charging options for EV drivers by adding to the company’s existing 22 charging stations located at 14 stores in four states.
“7‑Eleven’s legacy is bringing convenience to the customer, and that continues to evolve – from ice on a dock in 1927 to electricity for your car today,” said 7‑Eleven President and CEO Joe DePinto. “7‑Eleven’s rapid expansion of EV charging ports across the country is good for our customers and our planet and it’s the right thing to do.”
