bp Chargemaster and Polar to operate under the name bp pulse

News

bp pulse will be the new name for both bp Chargemaster, one of the UK’s leading electric vehicle charging companies; and Polar, the UK’s largest public charging network.

Info

Since acquiring both brands in 2018, bp has invested significantly in expanding its UK public charging network, as well as in the people, products and processes to help strengthen its position in the UK EV market.

As bp pulse, the company will continue to grow its public charging network across the UK, while improving access and functionality for electric vehicle drivers. In the UK, bp aims to more than double its current number of publicly available charging points on the bp pulse network from around 7,000 today to 16,000 by 2030.

The company's subscription scheme will continue to operate, enabling access to bp pulse public charge points at a low-cost tariff and for £7.85 a month. bp pulse members will still be able to access existing and new charge points with their RFID card or key fob,

The previous Polar Plus and Polar Instant smartphone apps were recently consolidated into a single bp Chargemaster app, which has also been rebranded to bp pulse. All users will be able to start and stop charges within the app, mange their account and plan their journeys with live map.

Throughout November, the company upgraded all its 50kW Ultracharge units with a new contactless payment terminal and improved software. It will continue to install our 50kW and 150kW rapid chargers across the country on the public charging network, all with contactless access available, including Apple, Google and Samsung Pay.

bp pulse will ensure that electric vehicle charging is as seamless, convenient and quick as possible. It wants its customers to spend less time worrying about charging and more time enjoying their journey. What's more, it wants to ensure that EV drivers can travel across the UK with the assurance that its public charging is certified with 100% renewable energy.

Matteo de Renzi, UK CEO of bp pulse, said: “As bp pulse, we continue to offer customers convenient charging solutions at home, on the go and for businesses. We are focused on making EV charging fast and convenient, and having recently become the UK's largest ultra-fast public charging operator, this remains the priority for expansion, with a target of 700 ultra-fast chargers available by 2025 and 1,400 by 2030.”
