The Western part of the US, in different IKEA stores you can find Blink electric vehicle charging stations for EVs. The Company made an alliance with ECOtotality and this is how in selected stores, customers will have the chance to recharge their batteries.
Apparently there will be ten different locations and the main ones are Washington, Oregon, California and Arizona and the activity will begin very soon, most probably this fall.
The responsible for the preparation of the stores, the installation, and reporting of information to ECOtotality will be IKEA, and the latter will be responsible for the installation and charging operations. The testing period, the pilot program will last until next year in December and until then all stores will have two Blink charging stations.
IKEA US president is very optimistic about this collaboration and he is also glad a lot of people who choose to drive an electric vehicle will have more access to charging points. Also this is proof that IKEA encourages the environment-friendly transport for people.
