McDonald’s is giving another good reason for loving it! The fast-food giant has announced the plan to set-up nearly hundreds of electric vehicle charging points across its outlets in the UK.
UK Government has already pledged to end the sales of petrol and diesel cars across the nation by the end of 2035. In support of the decision, various small big companies are investing in electric car charging facilities.
McDonald’s is the world’s largest fast-food chain by revenue. Offering the electric vehicle owning the customer base the perk of powering up their cars will surely add another but this time a green feather in its cap.
McDonald’s revealed that the plans will be taken forward in partnership with InstaVolt, the leading EV infrastructure developer in the UK, and will allow its diners to munch over their fries while their cars will be plugged into the ports, that will provide up to 80% charge in less than 20 minutes.
The project will offer its electric vehicle driver base to take advantage of its charging facility at many places across the UK.
One of the main reasons that were limiting the people to switch to electric vehicles is the lack of EV charging facilities, but with the Government being active as well as potentially mediating the growth of EV industries, an ever-rising behavioral trend is being witnessed in the drivers favoring electric vehicles over internal combustion engine cars.
Paul Pomroy, the CEO of McDonald’s UK and Ireland outlets told that the appetite for electric vehicles, which will play a central part in the UK’s efforts to build back greener post-COVID-19, is growing.
“With over 1,300 restaurants our ambition would mean you would never be far from a charging point. Our ultimate ambition is to have more EV charging points on our premises than any other company in the UK and Ireland,” he added.
