bp’s EV charging business, bp pulse, has entered into a $100 million (£82.6m) agreement with Tesla to integrate Tesla’s ultra-fast charging hardware into the bp pulse network.

The investment is part of bp’s broader plan to invest up to $1 billion (£830m) in EV charging infrastructure across the US by 2030.

The Tesla ultra-fast chargers, with a power output of 250kW, will be operated by bp pulse and fitted with Tesla’s ‘Magic Dock,’ compatible with both North American Charging Standard and Combined Charging System connectors.

The deployment of Tesla‘s chargers is slated to commence in 2024.
