Gradually deployed by 2023, these 2,000 new charging points will be distributed across all Carrefour hypermarkets.
Often lagging behind in terms of deployments, supermarkets are now working hard to equip their car parks. While Leclerc announced the deployment of 10,000 additional charging points in its stores the day after the presentation of the 100,000 terminals plan, Carrefour is clarifying its ambitions.
Associated with the investment company Meridiam, the French group plans to gradually install 2,000 charging points in its stores in France. Distributed over all of its hypermarkets, these terminals will be supplied with 100% green electricity.
22 to 350 kW terminals
On average, Carrefour intends to equip each hypermarket with 10 parking spaces equipped with a recharging system. To cover the needs of each user, different power levels will be offered:
- In alternating current, the service will be called “comfort” and will offer 22 kW terminals. Their use will be free for the first hour for customers holding a loyalty card or a Carrefour Pass card.
- In direct current, the powers may vary from 50 to 350 kW.
Interesting point: the brand will also offer a free charging service for new soft mobility.
” Thanks to our territorial network, the Carrefour charging service will be one of the largest in France, but also one of the most qualitative, with 56% of superchargers »Says Jérôme Nanty, Executive Director of Human Resources and Group and France Assets.
At this stage, Carrefour is not providing any information on the prices of its future charging service. However, we know that the group is planning a second wave of installations. This will equip the stores of the Carrefour Market network as well as the franchisees.
