BP Pulse inks deal with Simon Property to operate 900 EV chargers in US

By Editor


BP Pulse, a unit of energy major BP, has signed a deal with mall owner Simon Property Group to install and operate more than 900 electric-vehicle chargers at 75 sites across the United States.

The first locations with chargers from BP Pulse will be open to public in early 2026 and support vehicles from nearly all EV makers.

The deal, one of the largest in EV charging for the global oil giant, comes amid a broader slowdown in demand for EVs.

BP Pulse has more than 39,000 EV charge points globally, the company said, and plans to have 100,000 points by 2030.

The oil major has been expanding its footprint through deals with companies such as Hertz. BP Pulse also acquired truck fueling provider TravelCenters of America last year to expand its retail and charging network.

Last year, BP Pulse made plans to invest $1 billion in America’s EV infrastructure by the end of the decade.
