Coulomb Technologies to electrify Boston with install of 150 charging stations thumbnail

Filed under: EV/Plug-in , Hybrid , BMW , USA Despite the fact that BMW selected AeroVironment (AV) as its “preferred provider” of electric vehicle charging equipment, accessories and installation services for its Active E , the German automaker has teamed with Coulomb Technologies , not AV, to jointly announce that “drivers of the forthcoming BMW Active E all-electric vehicle will be able to take advantage of the expansion of the ChargePoint Network into the Boston Metro.” BMW says Coulomb Technologies will install more than 150 charging stations throughout the state of Massachusetts, with the bulk coming to the Greater Boston area. Most of the charging stations will be located within the confines of Massachusetts’ Route 495 Beltway . According to BMW, drivers of the Active E will be able to “conveniently and safely recharge their electric vehicle at any ChargePoint Network-enabled electric vehicle charging station in the US,” but Coulomb’s public charging stations aren’t exclusive to a single automaker, so drivers of any of the other available plug-in vehicles will have full access to the Boston-area network of chargers, too.
