Shell announced the launch of a mobility hub to support fleet operators. The goal of the energy giant is to help these professionals in the energy transition to come. The first of its kind in Europe, it will be installed in the heart of Paris.
While it has announced its desire to develop its charging network, the oil giant Shell is arriving in town for charging. It is in the heart of Paris, under the Hôtel de Ville, that Shell’s first charging station will be installed. This will be aimed at fleet managers and should facilitate the transition to electric.
This hub will be located on two levels of the Lobau car park and will offer a total of eight chargers. These will offer a power of 22 kW and 50 kW. They will thus be intended for professionals, who will be able to use them with the Shell Recharge card.
“The opening of this first charging hub meets our commitment to electric mobility in France”, explains Vincent Baril. The president of Shell France specifies that this station “Will help support the energy transition of the transport sector”.
“It is also an opportunity to bring the Shell brand back to the heart of Paris, to help vehicle fleet operators reduce their carbon footprint and help the City meet its own commitments to reduce CO2 emissions. “
This hub will not only have charging stations. It will provide vehicle maintenance and refreshment services for drivers. It will also be possible to pre-reserve charging points.
Shell wants to reach 500,000 charging points worldwide by 2025 and is thus developing its strategy in cities. A second hub will be created in the Paris region at the end of 2021. It will be located at the Aéroville shopping center, near Charles de Gaulle airport.
