Bp launches electric vehicle charging brand in Australia

Bp has announced the launch of its electric vehicle charging brand ‘bp pulse’ in Australia, with plans for 600 charge points across the country.

Bp Bayside at Brighton East in Melbourne was the official launch location of the new bp pulse fast charge points in Australia, with sites in Diamond Creek in Victoria and Caboolture in Queensland also now opened to the public.

Bernard Looney, CEO of bp, who was present at the launch, said it was brilliant to get bp pulse underway in Australia to deliver a high-speed, high-quality charging experience to help accelerate the transition to electric vehicles.

“Australia’s ambition is to be a renewable energy superpower, and this is just one of the ways we are backing the country that has backed bp for more than a century.”

The initial rollout will see chargers installed along the east coast of Australia and will form part of bp’s ambition to install more than 100,000 EV chargers globally and become a net zero company by 2050.

The Tritium chargers each have two connectors and will be able to charge two vehicles simultaneously and in 2023, new and existing chargers will be connected to high power grid connections enabling charge speeds of up to 150kW.

Frédéric Baudry, President, bp Australia and SVP fuels and low carbon solutions, Asia Pacific, said they want to provide their customers with a fantastic experience and meet their needs, irrespective of their choice of mobility.

“We will be on the journey with them through this decade and beyond with growing numbers of fast, reliable chargers at convenient locations with great retail options, whether they want to eat, drink or shop.”
